Hand-painted signs, wall murals and 23KT gold leaf work performed by a traditional sign writer, EST. 1980.

It’s hard to deny the visual impact and appeal of a sign that is enriched by the labour, skill, dedication and knowledge of a craftsman – and at Central Signwriters we are proud to bring our 40+ years of experience and learning to the fore in every job we take on.

Established in 1980, we have an excellent reputation throughout Greater London for the quality of our work, which includes hand-painted shop signs, house letters and numbers, boat signage, window graphics, mural art and gold-leaf gilding. We continue to work with clients from every sector, including domestic and commercial, schools and universities, pubs and restaurants, leading decorating companies regularly commission 'numbers' for columns and pillars throughout London 

Please feel free to browse our website and explore examples of past projects we have undertaken—in particular our portfolio page, which will provide you with an insight into the richly diverse work we produce. To speak with us, discuss the hand-written signs or lettering you require, and request a quote and timescale for the job, get in touch by phone or email to chat with us.

Peter is very professional, very friendly, and makes fantastic signs. He thinks for you, and makes suggestions that you never thought of, and enhance your design. He did for me! He's good, very good. And he cares (and that is important and makes him very good at what he does for you).
