19 Jun Handpainted Wall Signs for your business
A Sydney based physiotherapy clinic has a studio in Curl Curl on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. A shop front renovation is needed with new signs that will be easily noticed and long lasting. Absolute Sign Solutions did an onsite inspection. Measurements were taken and a new design was mocked up for sign writing. The sign proof was then forwarded to the client for approval. This location is a busy road where thousands of people drive by every day. Therefore the hand painted message needed to be easily read and strategically positioned on the wall to maximise the view as you drive down the hill.
HOW SIGNS ARE DONE
We do as much preparation as possible prior to going on site. This includes layouts, measurements, checking OHS and traffic issues and communicating with the client so everything runs like clock work. The wall sign was all hand painted using a brush by our signwriters. The wall was very rough (see detail)
However this is no problem for an experienced signwriter.
Hand painting always gives you the best outcome for a long lasting wall sign. No other method will work as well on a rough surface. The only other option is by using sign panels which are produced and installed to the surface of the wall. However this can be costly. The life of the sign panels would probably be less than the hand painted signs, therefore not as cost effective. Another advantage of hand painted signs is that they can be touched up or recoated if needed down the track. Alternatively sign panels need to be removed and replaced with new ones when past their use by date. Often the customer prefers the look of a hand painted finish as it becomes and looks like ‘part of the wall’.

THE VALUE OF HAND PAINTED SIGNS
- Hand painted signs are great value considering how long they last. Customers always comment on the value of a ‘sign written’ sign.
- Painted signs have lots of character. They can be exact or very rustic depending on the customers requirements.
- When hand painted, the sign actually becomes part of the wall or the surface they are sign written on.
- Hand done signs last.
- Hand painted sign writing can be applied to virtually any type of surface
