Calligraphy and sign painting
Handwritten words, names, texts and logos: that is sign painting and calligraphy in a nutshell. Sign painting mainly focuses on handmade advertising texts and logos, while calligraphy often consists more of graceful and curly letters. With the rise of print, these traditional forms of handicraft had faded somewhat into the background over the years. But recently there has been a real comeback: if you want to radiate authenticity, choose sign painting or calligraphy.
Hiring a signpainter?
Sign painting and calligraphy fall under the category of 'crafts'. Because nowadays almost all graphic work is done digitally and the manual application takes relatively more time, very few people master this craft. Do you want a design that is completely tailored to your wishes and that distinguishes itself from a 'standard' print? If you have an idea, feel free to discuss it with us. Our experienced sign painters can always think of a creative way to turn your ideas into a high-profile and unique work of art.
How can sign painting and calligraphy be used?
Company walls and shop windows of shops, restaurants and cafes are ideal for sign painting and calligraphy. For example, you can make the name of your business stand out in a beautiful way by having it immortalized with gold leaf on your window or shop window. It is of course also possible to choose a handmade one advertising painting as a wall decoration on an interior or exterior wall. With calligraphy and sign painting, a unique and high-profile eye-catcher can be created in countless ways.
The difference between calligraphy and calligraffiti
The term calligraffiti, coined in 2007 by the Amsterdam artist Niels 'Shoe' Meulman, is a creative amalgamation of the words 'calligraphy' and 'graffiti'. Calligraphy is the art of calligraphy and as the word combination suggests, the creation of graceful letters and texts is central to this form of graffiti. calligraphy is actually a modern variant of traditional calligraphy.

Chalk texts and drawings
A nicely designed chalkboard with the menu, opening times or a temporary action text in chalk letters not only looks well cared for but also certainly draws attention. In addition to the traditional chalk boards our chalkboard drafters also provide temporary or permanent paintings in 'chalk style' on walls and windows. This form of wall decoration usually has a traditional appearance and is increasingly used in shops, restaurants and catering establishments where by means of food illustrations the used products are displayed in an original way. Naturally, all our chalk paintings are unique and the design is fully tailored to your wishes.
