Traditional House Signs
Our Traditional House Signs are Cast in Aluminium
Our Traditional house signs are hand cast in aluminium using the ancient sand casting method, we have oval house signs, rectangular, arched top house plaques, round ones as well as house number plaques all featuring raised lettering and outside border.
Traditional house signs are first moulded by hand in foundry sand to produce a negative of your chosen sign shape, house name and motif. Once the mould is ready the molten aluminium at approx 750 C can then be gently poured into the mould, when the casting has solidified, it is then released from the mould.
At this point you can see the detail of the raised/embossed sign lettering, outside border and motif, producing a high-quality solid cast aluminium sign. The sign is then fettled, a process of grinding, filing, sanding and working the surface, before being carefully hand-painted.

The embossed text/lettering and outside border is one piece, formed when the molten metal flows into the sand mould, producing a solid cast sign. The text/lettering sizes available are 1″, 1.5″, 2″, & 3″ we use the largest that looks best on your sign, should we have any difficulty then we will contact you. We have a range of sculptured house sign motifs that are embossed and like the lettering are part of the solid casting. Should you wish to have a motif on your sign, then please phone or email to check if the motif will fit your chosen sign.
