It's a sign

Staffordshire, west midlands

Hey, Hello, Hi, I’m Laura the founder of “Its a sign” a small independent artist specialising in all things signwriting, with my main focus being reverse glass gilding. This technique also known as 'verre églomisé' is a traditional process involving the precise application of designs in gold leaf onto the reverse of glass, creating an amazing and eye catching mirror like finish. By using this historical technique and putting my own twist to it, I make playful and colourful signs for your home or business. Each piece I hand paint on glass with 23ct gold gilding with an injection of bold and popping colours, a sprinkle of glitter and some fun loving expletives. All signs comes fully framed and ready to hang! What are you waiting for? Make your wall glisten!

The story behind the business
Meet It's a sign

I began my career in fashion as a designer in London. Sign writing initially started as a hobby after falling in love with this heritage craft and the enjoyment of trying my hand at something new. What started out as a personal venture soon turned into a small business. From shop fascias to wall murals, you name it, I'll paint it! Glass Gilded signs have become a key a focus of my business, with their intricate beauty and stunning gold, mirror-like finish, each one being personal in its own right.
