Gold leaf. Shimmering, seductive, worthy of statuary and tombs for ancient gods, and for numerous works of art through the ages. The Egyptians were the first to perfect the process, followed by improvements that resulted in a technique that has changed little for thousands of years.
Today, gold leaf is usually found in architecture, fine art and commercial enterprises. In addition, it is found in the sign industry. As a handcraft, Paxton Signs uses the same tools now as when the Egyptians created their magnificent art. The incredible durability of gold surpasses other traditional applications such as vinyl and paint. Consequently, gold will outlast those products by many years. Incredibly, since it is resistant to most chemicals and weather conditions, it can last for 20 years. Some Egyptian gold treasures are still in pristine condition after 5000 years!
Is gold leaf a good choice for your business?
Traditionally, professionals like lawyers and doctors prefer gold leaf. Businesses that want to project upscale appeal, such as horse enterprises, jewelers, resort areas, boutiques, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and golf courses, are well served by utilizing gold leaf. Additionally, owners of vehicles and boats may desire upscale graphics. They find that gold’s sumptuous sheen and durability is, by far, the best choice.
