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!
