Today we’re distressing some hand-lettered signs and making them into vintage signs—laying off after a busy week of commercial signs. It’s fun. We’ve been very busy and this is a nice break. We do a lot of signs using cut vinyl graphics, but we also do handcrafted signs.
My father, Brian, started the business in 1988, after 23 years in the trade. He has been a sign and coach painter since 1965. He’s 67 and semi-retired since last year, but still helps out a lot. His pastime is old lorries—vintage trucks.
