This custom hanging sign that we did recently was shipped to a clothing designer in Graz Austria. It is double sided with the the logo at the top and the carved skirt done as add-ons to give a 3 dimensional effect. All the gold is is gilded by hand with real gold leaf. It is simple yet attractive and gives a feeling of quality. With the real gold gilding that does not tarnish and the UV resistant acrylic paint it should attract customers for many years.
Have you ever wanted your very own Irish pub sign? The sign below was actually made as a wedding present for somebody else, but it is a take off on an actual Irish pub sign. The customer actually visited our workshop and we sat down and designed the sign together. After a few final tweaks, the design was ready to put into production, and I have to say, I am more than impressed with the final result.

We actually started on this project quite a while ago, but we have only now gotten around to taking some quality photos of the sign in situ.
February of last year we were approached by the management of the Royal Herbert Pavilions, a luxury development of apartments in Woolwich created through the restoration of the Royal Herbert Hospital.
The building has a unique and interesting history, not least because it was the first specially built military hospital in the country and the first, military or civilian, to utilise the pavilion design.
They wanted a building sign that would reflect the unique nature of this block of flats and turned to Clover Signs for expert advice. We payed them a visit before even starting on the sign in order to get a feel of the surroundings so the sign would be sure to fit in.
Here is the finished result, complete with an image of the clock tower, intricately carved and gilded, and a complimentary 10 MPH sign underneath, as the existing cheap acrylic sign was completely out of context:
Throughout the course of the year, we here at Clover Signs can’t help but notice the tendency of people to request a house sign design that is in keeping with that particular time of year. For instance, many crocuses and daffodils are requested in Spring, and we seem to paint a lot of blackberries and apples in the Autumn and poppies in November. This seems quite logical except when you stop to think that your house sign will be up year round. Nevertheless, we are still receiving orders for and making numerous Holly House signs like this one.
Tempted? It’s not too late for that last minute Christmas present. However, orders must be placed by the 10th of December in order to deliver by Christmas. Just remember, a house sign will last many years and will be on your house throughout all the seasons, so don’t limit yourself to the present moment.
