Signwriting in the news

Traditional Signwriting has been making the news recently with 3 stories on the BBC website in the last month.

The stories of “Ghost Signs” made it to the regional news channels  – up in the North West  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-30734045 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-30703573  but of more interest to us in Birmingham, Midlands Today http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-30994224 featuring many gently fading signs around the Birmingham area, some of which could well have been done by our Signwriting family, as at J Connor Signs, Derek the signwriting member of the our team continues to practice the skills passed on to him from his Father, who in turn learnt from his Father, as did his Father before him.

We have found that traditional hand painted sign writing has had a tremendous revival in recent times. More and more of our clients are realising that a hand painted sign adds character, makes you stand out from your competitors and a unique, artistic appearance to your signage.

Traditional Sign Writing has never been out of the news as far as we are concerned at J Connor Signs. We are busy are keeping the traditional methods alive for our customers and applaud the efforts of Tracey Thorne to document and preserve these “works of art”.
