The Museum is so grateful to the many talented volunteers who have contributed to this undertaking. Sometimes the work is less visible and other times it is beautiful artwork. We are excited to start showing some of these artists and sharing their content. A huge Thankyou to Colt Bowden, Mac Sign Painting.
And Nick Lee, Studio Sign Co

Some final shots of last weeks visit to the friendly folks at @moosetattoo and @quincysclassiccuts . We went to add some extra flavour to their recently re-opened shop. Hand painted lettering and illustration on the outside of the building to dress it up, and inside a freestyle price list and a classic #goldleafsign , done together with @krabman_signs . Thanks to everyone involved!
fixed a broken window and revisited some old work from 2016 👋

This is a really cool antique pharmacy sign from the early 1900s. The embossed goldleaf panel was part of a reverse painted glass sign, something of a lost art now. Great piece of history and would be a nice gift item for a pharmacist. DM or call 214-747-9234 for more information. @griffintrading
Two years ago we had the opportunity to travel to Vietnam. It left a lasting impression on us for many reasons, one being the incredible hand painted signs we came across throughout the country. Since then we have made many wonderful friends through our mutual interest in these signs and type. We are thrilled to announce that we will be returning to Vietnam in January of 2019 to teach a gold leaf workshop. We will post once tickets are available online. If you are interested and would like learn more please email us at [email protected]gmail.com or DM us with questions. We will soon announce our special guests joining us and the programming and events that will place while we are there.
Special thanks to @nhungwalsh for spearheading this event, @quoc.huyle for your creative support and guidance, @inpages for hosting the event and support from the best gold leaf supplier @wbgoldleaf
“Here to win, Here to stay✨” It was a real pleasure to work at the Midwest Workers Association today. They are a volunteer run organization that helps mobilize people supporting needs such as their current fight to keep water from being shut off on people’s homes on the South Side of Chicago. They want their members to be encouraged by their gold leaf sign, so we are honored they chose us. Thank you to Urban @wbgoldleaf for recommending us for the project.
Hay una técnica que me fascina y que muy pocos artesanos hacen ya; el rótulo con hoja de oro. Ese que vemos en muchas tiendas antiguas. En @libertylondon puedes comprar tu portavela - portalapices con tu inicial.
There’s this technique that fascinates me and that very few artisans already do; the sign with gold leaf. That we see in many old stores or buy at @libertylondon for your pencils or candles
