Signs have been making businesses stand out from the rest since commerce itself was just a wee nipper. Nowadays, with 99% of signage being designed on a computer and made with vinyl, you can make your business stand out with the human touch, via a Signwriter who is geekishly passionate about letterforms and layout, with just his hands, some brushes and a bit of paint.

Please ignore all the penis graffitti on my drawing board. Ta.

Original Rough sketch
Pounce pattern - the design is drawn at full size on pattern paper, and then the outlines are perforated. The drawing is then placed upon the signboards and pounce powder (chalk powder) is dusted over it, leaving an outline to guide your paintbrush.

Boards with pounce pattern dusted on.

Sometimes you got to sketch straight on too.

Wilma, satisfied that the offensive graffitti has finally been painted over and ready to install the sign.
