Please send all sign and artwork enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
See below for some questions which will help me to provide an accurate quote. As I spend a lot of time up ladders, it could take me 1-2 weeks to reply to your email. If you need signage urgently please detail this in the email and title line.
All Commercial Signage:
To help me provide an accurate quote, it would be helpful if you could provide the following information:
• Do you have a design or would you like me to design it?
• If you already have a design, I'll need a file (preferably a pdf, eps, or ai)
• Sign dimensions or the dimensions of the space the sign will fit into
• The exact wording on the sign
• How many colours do I need to match? Please note that not all painted colours can be matched to paint colour, though I do try my best!
Site Specific Signage:
If it isn't possible for me to paint remotely for the work to be installed please provide the following:
• Photos of the places where signage/artwork will be painted
• Rough measurements of these areas and whether they are at height (if so, how high up are they?)
• The wall surface (i.e., brick, smooth drywall, rough stucco, etc.)
• When ideally you'd like the work to be carried out and/or completed
• Where the site is (Glasgow, surrounding area, across the country, out of the country)
Please provide as many answers to these questions as possible in your initial email. I will then issue a ballpark cost, and if this is within your budget we can arrange a site visit.
• What would you like it to say?
• Would you like it to be on wood/glass?
• Roughly what size would you like it to be?
• Do you have any examples of style and colour scheme you had in mind?
Below is a rough guide to pricing for artwork commissions:
Sign artwork for interiors (enamel paint on wooden panel, see examples here) – £100+
Gilded glass artwork, unframed (enamel paint and 23.5 carat real gold on glass) – £150+
Wedding signs (enamel paint on wood or other flat surfaces) – £150
Please note that commission costs can be affected by size, material, complexity of design, number of colours and many more factors. Please get in touch before if you would like a rough price of a specific commission. The above list of possible commissions is not exhaustive.
GILDED HOUSE NUMBERS
For gilded house numbers, please send the following information to email@example.com:
• The number you'd like to be gilded
• The location of your house (ie. Glasgow, surrounding area, further afield)
• Photos of your front door from the inside of the house and from outside
• Measurements of the glass panel
• An example of a previous number I've done which you like the style of.
After I have this information and your window is suitable to gild I will send a rough estimate. Please note that most house numbers will be between £200-300. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have a pal who loves hand painted signs? Perhaps your parents live in a beautiful old house and would like some gilded numbers above their door? Would your partner love a piece for an anniversary present? Or maybe you'd just like to commission something for yourself and pay for it in a few instalments?
