No paint job is complete without signwriting and at John Barnard Ltd we've teamed up with local signwriter Jon Leeson to provide an all in one service. This means the whole paint job, including signwriting, can be completed with one booking - all whilst your boat is safely under cover and protected from the elements.
Following in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather, Jon is a third generation signwriter with over twenty-five years of experience.
Jon's work has been featured many times in various publications including Signcraft Magazine and Sign Business Magazine (Jon placed 3rd in their Auto Art contest in 2001). Jon is also a regular contributor to Professional Painter & Decorator Magazine.
Working under the name LetterKnight, Jon specialises in beautiful, bespoke, hand painted lettering and sign-work that draws heavily on traditional styles and themes, but often with an eye-catching contemporary twist.
After close consultation with the client, Jon produces pencil and ink sketches of the design, before rendering the final artwork using a variety of techniques including hand-painting and lettering, pinstriping, coachlining, gold leaf and glass engraving.
The result being stunning, hand-crafted custom artwork and signage - click on the LetterKnight logo to be taken to Jon's website for examples of his work.
