Hand-painted signs are having a revival. Today’s business owners seem to appreciate the value in the human stroke of a brush, as well as the resulting beauty of artistic technique. It’s been a long time coming. At Paxton Signs, we welcome the comeback.
What Happened to Hand-Painted Signs?
Historically, the first sign of hand-painting decline began in the 1980s. This was when vinyl cutting first made its appearance. Additionally, the painting technique lost popularity because of computers. The 90s proved even more disastrous because of Inkjet printers and digital design. Window stickers, banners, business signs and vehicle wraps were merely keystrokes away. Unavoidably, most still look mundane and mass-produced.
A Renewed National Interest…
Lately, however, retailers are turning to sign painters to convey a sense of individuality. More than ever, they want their signs to stand out. They want signs that communicate authenticity. In addition, they are aware that having something hand-painted is special, something they can point to – a person, an artist – rather than a vinyl cutting machine. Further, the revival suggests a renewed national interest in crafted and handmade work. It is reviving the amazing history that surrounds this centuries-old trade. The result is that the business world understands and appreciates the art and craft of hand-painted signs – signs that represent something loved and crafted.
