Gold leaf lettering on a Mast & Mallet.
The best gold leaf boat names are right here in Edgewater at Mast & Mallet! Are you looking for natural gold lettering for your classic wooden boat? We can do that. We’ll do a site survey. We’ll provide a font portfolio for review. Choose one good font, and then we can draw your transom or provide you with a mock photo. This rendering will give you a good idea of how your boat name will look before installing it. You can suggest revisions at this time if needed. After you approved the drawing, we will schedule your installation as soon as possible.
How long does it take to make a gold leaf boat name?
Installation of real gold leaf lettering by hand requires a full day on-site to complete. From preparation to installation, the process requires patience. If we try to rush forward with the job during the installation, it would be easy to make a mistake. When we do this type of work, mistakes are not fixable. Some errors in judgment to timing mean that we would have to clean off the transom and start over from the beginning again! However, with years of experience in the trade, we always get our gold leaf boat names done right on the first try.
We gild old-fashioned boat names.
You can’t beat hand lettering on a classic wood transom. Simply beautiful, Regina Marie Annapolis, MD. A wood transom with traditional 23 karat gold leaf lettering and hand-painted outline. There’s nothing better than a brilliant gold leaf name on a wooden yacht. First, the transom is sanded and varnished, then sanded again. Next, the gold leaf lettering is rendered by hand. Then the gold gets a light clear coat before we paint the outline onto the letters. After we finish the lettering, the gold and outline need a couple of days to cure. Finally, your team can apply multiple coats of varnish over the transom. With regular upkeep of the varnish, this beautiful gold leaf boat name will last a lifetime.
