A shop selling handcrafted frames should have a handcrafted sign. So a few weeks ago we had our name painted in the window by a for-real sign painter—a breed of artisan that not long ago many thought would soon be made extinct by vinyl signs. Derek MacDonald and Tina Vines (and Herbie the boxer) are Golden West Sign Arts in Berkeley, and make signs the good old fashioned way: with the mighty hand. The letters are 23 kt gold leaf with a black drop-shadow.
Great job, guys! Need a sign painter? Give them a call!
