It’s amazing how well vintage stands out from the crowd, catching the eyes of passers by or attracting attention when used at home, in your garage or as part of the décor.
A: Quite often, truly old/antique signs are worn out and unusable so they require some care and attention. Ideally, you wouldn’t want to touch a real vintage sign though. It’s better to leave it in its original state, if the value of it matters to you. However, if you have found yourself a gem and you aren’t too keen on the way it looks, we can help to renovate it for you.
Many of the A1deSIGNS team have a real passion for vintage signs, so bringing them back to life when they are damaged or overly aged is a real pleasure. The techniques we use will make sure your sign still looks old and ‘antique looking’, once we have finished.
A: It all depends on the materials used and the state of the signs. Is it damaged? Are there flaking or loose parts? Is it wooden, metal or something else? How dirty is the sign? These are all things that need to be considered before you set about cleaning it.
A: Real vintage signs can be extremely valuable, so if you you happen to have one lying around or you manage to acquire one, it’s worth taking the time to get it valued properly.
If you are looking to have a vintage style sign made, we can provide you with a custom quote based on your requirements. Send us details of your project (including size, materials, lettering etc.) and we can give you a price.
A: Real vintage signs are hard to come by. Auctions and boot sales are your best bet, or from vintage sign specialists. You’ll find vintage signs for sale online by visiting the likes of eBay, although you can’t always be sure whether the sign is truly vintage or not. It’s probably best to avoid doing this unless you are 100% certain the sign is actually vintage.
If it’s more the vintage style you care about to help you create a retro/antique look, vintage style signs can be designed, manufactured and installed by A1deSIGNS.
A: It’s hard to tell if a sign is real vintage or a fake. An old article written by eBay will help you to understand things a little better, or if you are still unsure, give us a call and we can talk to you about your sign. Our recommendation would be to visit an antique specialist to find out whether or not you have managed to get your hands on a real vintage sign or a fake!
