Gold Leaf Lettering brings quality to High Streets. It usually works best with rich, dark background colours: Black, Dark Greys, Dark Blues and Burgundy. Black shadow effect and/or outlines can be added as well. Other types of leaf such as Copper Leaf and Silver Leaf are also requested. Palladium is best substituted for silver for exterior use because of oxidization and verdigris issues when exposed to the atmosphere. Other speciality leaf types and substitutes are available.
Golf leaf lettering to windows historically associated to Solicitors’ Offices, Banks and Institutions has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent times, particularly for Tattoo Parlours and customers requiring Quality, High-End, Aspirational auras. Because of the time and materials involved the traditional techniques are sometimes these days substituted for vinyl effects. Cost implications would dictate that for shorter term applications.
