  • Gary Orr was contracted to gild the hand carved wooden lettering on the front of our Edwardian, listed, city centre shop front.  It was important that the sign reflect the prestigious nature of our business.   As we open in a busy city centre six days a week   Gary worked outside of business hours to accommodate us and was   extremely timely, efficient and tidy in his working practice.     The effect of the letters covered in 23.5ct gold leaf was outstanding and represented excellent value for money.   I would not hesitate to employ Gary Orr again and would highly recommend him for any sign writing and gilding.
