Gold Leaf – the fairest of them all
Gold is like Hendrix, Rubens, chilli… a fire in the winter’s night.

Expertise and Tradition is kept alive by correct principles handed down from master to student. Love what you do … then cover it in gold.
The first 10 years of my career was spent making 24ct gold leaf signs for the 5 major London breweries – nothing else… just gold. Imagine that, a kid of 21 going straight into pub sign gilding 7 days a week.
Gold with red shade… gold with black shade. It was heaven.
It’s fresh in the memory and still in the blood.
The Sublime Power of Gold
The power of 24ct gold has on passers by is what makes it such a key asset to a growing business and signwriter’s tool set. From all angles it is visible in the most spectacular way … the sun never bleaches it from view, in mid afternoon it glows much as it does at dawn and under artificial lighting it becomes gloriously luminous..
‘Nothing conveys as much impact on a window as gold leaf.’ Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978:7
We believe it is true… gold leaf is the ultimate visual statement and yet affordable. It remains the very best way to enhance the spirit of success and sensational visual appeal.
