Hand Painted Signs

A well crafted sign, thoughtfully designed and painted by Young Sign Studio, is an excellent alternative to 3D signs or vinyl.

I enjoy working with clients who have their own ideas for me to respond to. Equally, if you need help imagining what could work for you, I'm happy to guide you and show you examples.

Take a look at some of the examples below to imagine how a similar approach could work for your business.


What are the main advantages of a hand-painted sign?

There are many advantages to hand-painted signwriting as it is very versatile and can be applied to a range of textures and surfaces.

Each sign I make is crafted with care using the highest quality materials.

I also use specialist signwriting enamels and coatings to ensure each sign lasts as long as possible.

  • Durable
  • Can be painted on a large scale (murals & brick signs)
  • Can be painted directly onto rough surfaces
  • Interior or Exterior
  • Professionally designed and painted

Would you like your existing logo painted?

Signs don't always have to follow traditional rules and practices, or even look 'traditional'. There are of course more practical reasons, where hand painting creates the best outcome for the project.

Any modern logo can be painted directly onto most surfaces with precision. This is especially useful if a rough surface such as timber, brick or rendering simply won't accept vinyl or mounted lettering.

If the project requires it, other faded and distressed effects can also be used with paint to add an aged appearance.

Distressed techniques can also be used to create brick signs or 'ghost signs' (faded adverts and signs from the past).

If you would like a custom hand-painted sign for your business, contact me to discuss your ideas.
