MASON SIGNS are traditional tradesmen signwriters, & can hand paint & air brush. All signs were hand painted in the past but with the computer technology, this has become a dying art. Some customers still prefer hand painted for the longevity, one of our customers Qld Paint Supplies has his signs repainted about every 10 years (photos below).
The main use of painted signs today, is direct to buildings such as tilt slab constructions, & some heavy machinery is still hand painted, but we can still paint on most surfaces including, gold leaf windows, honour boards & show car boards.
All Signs Were originally hand painted but it is mainly used now, for tilt slab buildings, shop fronts & facias. We can paint most signs’ including, honour boards, show boards , machinery, boats, heavy equipment & sign panels if required
Honour boards were traditionally hand painted & then gold leaf was placed over the lettering, giving you a true 22ct gold leaf letter. Both the labour & the gold has become expensive, so now the gold is computer cut from vinyl, there is several grades of gold & gold leaf look vinyls, which is cut out & stuck to the board. This will give you the same look & be more consistant than hand writing. We can still give you true gold leaf, as well as make, stain & clear a basic shaped honour board. A more detailed board can be made by a cabinet maker & we can then, add your titles & names to this, or your own supplied board
Air brushed signs or graphics are basically artwork that is sprayed to the job, it gives a much softer finish than brushwork alone. Since digital printers have changed the industry, you can now print a photo rather than paint an artists impression, so air brushing has virtually disappeared. However there is still some demand & we can do it
We can hand write or digitally print, your show board. They can be produced in various shapes & materials. The Porsche board here is laser cut from perspex, printed reverse on the back, & then backed up with sparkle frosting, even the stand is in clear perspex. We can also do the more traditional, as seen here (right) or anything in between
