The Sublime Power of Gold
The power gold has on passers by is what makes it such a key asset to a signwriter’s tool set. From all angles it is visible .. the sun never bleaches it from view in mid afternoon it glows much as it does at dawn and under artificial lighting it becomes gloriously luminous.
‘Nothing conveys as much impact on a window as gold leaf.’
Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978:7
We believe it is true… gold leaf is the ultimate visual statement and yet affordable. It remains the very best way to enhance the spirit of success and sensational visual appeal.
