I’m regularly asked to make museum quality gold leaf artist nameplates. They are primarily used for fine artist oil paintings and limited edition bronze sculptures.
My nameplates are each gilded with 23 karat gold leaf on hard wood plates. They can be antiqued (darkened), have added imitation fly specks added, or rubbed to show the bole color underneath. Other bole colors besides oft used red are available, including yellow, black, gray, white, turquoise, and blue. Other colors of gold such as moon gold (a warm white gold), lemon gold, white gold, silver, or palladium can also be used. If you send a photo of the frame I can match the metal color. Each are handlettered with permanent black ink and sealed. For each artist or collector, we will work together to determine the ideal lettering style for the body of work or painting.
My precut sizes are 2″ by ½″, 2 ½″ by ½″, 3″ by ⅝″, 3 ½″ by ¾″, 4″ by ¾″, 4 ½″ by ¾″, 5″ by ¾“, 5″ by 1″, 6″ by 1″ or 1 ½”, and 7″ by 1″ or 1 ½″ with the decorative rounded ends. Typically I have a 2 week turnaround. Additional shapes and sizes are at additional cost and may take an extra week or two.
Terms: First order requires payment in full when the intial sketch is sent for approval. Deposits are non-refundable. Custom orders, including nameplates, are not returnable nor refundable after the sketches are approved. One revision of the initial sketch is included with the price of each nameplate. Any further revisions after the first revision or the final work begins require a change fee. Rush fees are additional.
