Gold leaf is as traditional as it gets. And although the thought of having your company name written in 24-carat gold, may seem opulent to some, there are many advantages. Gold has fascinated humanity for hundreds of years, and despite numerous attempts to replicate it, this most iconic of metals remains unique.
Gilded lettering has been the backbone of the sign trade for over a century, and it is still applied by hand. It’s the very top of the range, which is why it’s still used extensively to represent quality brands and organisations throughout the world.
You will find it on most government buildings, royal palaces, parliaments, embassies, courthouses, museums, churches, mosques, and temples. As well as many of the top hotels, galleries, and department stores.
The Ancient Egyptians were among the earliest users of gold leaf, and much of their work is still admired today. A true testament to amazing it’s durability.
