Glass gilding (gold leaf on glass) on a shop window, at Jack Wills University Outfitters in Charlottesville, Virginia. Designs & Signs installs gold leaf throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Glass gilding is one of our many specialties.
Glass Gilding – SIZE Matters!
This installation required three days to complete. Gold leaf is a tedious, time consuming craft. The size of your logo matters. A reasonably sized logo takes on day to install and is priced appropriately. Our installations are priced by the day, or number of days required for completion of the project. Unfortunately we were asked to put this logo low on the glass… something we will never do again! Brendon had to lay on his back and kneel during the installation as the lower letters are so close to the floor. Big mistake! This added a full day to the project. It was not necessary. Gold leaf catches the eye of anyone on the street. A high location for this logo would have been appropriate and much easier to render by hand.
We also install gold leaf numbers on residential properties.
