Minuteman Press Bath recently installed a gold sign for local Bath goldsmith Tina Engell. Tina has been a valued customer of Minuteman Press for over 16 years. One of her first orders with us was a self inking rubber stamp. We have also supplied Tina with letterheads, invoice pads and gold foiled business cards.
Finding the signage solution
Tina’s shop and workshop is based on a beautiful Bath shopping street. It is steep and can be very windy. The previous sign was a hanging sign which soon fell foul to the strong winds. It was important to get a solid, safe solution. After an on site meeting it was decided to go for a large version of her logo.
Tina’s original logo was designed as an orange logo back in 1991. Recently this had been adapted for use as gold. We first used the gold foil on Tina’s business cards in 2021. Gold continues to be used for invoice pads and we look to use gold where possible. We use our unique gold ink for this.
The new gold sign for our Bath goldsmith was to be bold and classy. We suggested a 3D sign safely anchored into the wall with a solid bracket. No more swinging in the wind for this sign.
Visuals made up, sample materials provided and all agreed. We moved to production.
We used a local fabricator to help make the sign. They suggest in order to create the vision using stainless steel with a mirror gold with a rigid hanging bracket. The hanging bracket painted black and the centre piece which held the two large rims together.
The result exceeded our signage expectations.
We had this back we checked all the components and parts needed to make this a successful install.
Another site survey with the client to ensure that we are happy with the exact final location for the sign took place.
Know your limits. With the windy location and valuable sign to go up high it was important to get this right. We used a local contractor to help us put this up safely. They anchored this safely into the Bath stone building and tested it. More importantly they will be back on a few weeks to tighten and tidy. With our new install team we are confident that every sign will go up safely.
Here is the gold sign for our Bath goldsmith in situ. High up on Bartlett Street in glorious mirror gold.
