Traditional Hand Painted Signs

Beautiful signs produced by a time served craftsman.

BESPOKE SIGNS is Paul Myerscough.

I’ve been a Traditional Signwriter since sometime in ’87. I've managed to weather the dark days of computer generated rubbish that’s infested our fine cities and towns for the last 3 decades!  

After making it up for a year or so I decided it would be a good idea to learn how to do it properly. So I embarked on a City & Guilds course for two years which I passed with distinctions. However I'm still learning and I'm always trying out new things. A lot of which I pick up from the now strong community of signwriters around the country.

In the passing years I’ve painted everything from massive stuff like Fairground Rides and Steam Engines to House Signs, Bicycles, Vintage Vehicles & Motorbikes, Shopfronts & Glass Gilding..... in fact there’s not much I haven't lettered.  The company moto is “If it’ll stay still, I’ll paint it!”

The noble art of Signwriting is now enjoying some what of a renaissance. The discerning British folks have seen the light again and are now supporting their local Signwriter. A direct result of this is our High Streets are becoming more interesting, individual and unique.  Walk down any of them and you’ll notice that hand painted signs are appearing more & more. You'll probably also notice the hand painted signs are the ones that stand out from the rest. 

It's very important to remember your sign will be the first point of contact that many people will get of your business.... So get it right!                    Use someone with experience and a strong background in design. 
A good sign says more about your business than almost anything else!

Long live Hand Painted Signs! A computer can never imitate something touched by a human hand!

My signs are made and painted by hand using traditional methods and craftsmanship for a quality finish and character impossible to reproduce using automated production methods.

I use only the finest tools & materials. We use traditional applications combined with modern paint systems for maximum durability.

Gilding is done by hand using 23 3/4ct. finest English gold leaf to ensure your sign looks stunning..... Nothing looks better than a Gold Leaf Sign!

As I have no unnecessary overheads and don't use expensive industrial machinery or software, therefore it may not be as costly as you think. Infact a hand painted facia can be very cost effective!

With 26+ years experience I'm one of the a few and arguably most experienced traditional sign writers working in the UK today. If you want a beautiful sign made by a true craftsman that you will be proud of for years to come, I'm the man for you!

I aim for my customers to be "delighted" not just "happy"
