School Crests

ANY well-established school surely has a crest or coat-of-arms. In many cases, the crest is incorporated into the stonework of school buildings, or even carved out of wood on school podiums and honor boards. Much of this carving and sculpting work, however, was done years ago by artisans who are no living. These days, few sign-making companies still have craftsmen with these sculpting abilities. As a result, school crests are often rendered using flat, prosaic digital printing methods.

For a school with a strong sense of pride and history, a hand-sculpted school crest - in the style of days gone by - is a far better option. We are one of the few shops that still uses chisels, gouges artist-painting and gold-gilding to create authentic school crests. Get in touch with us, to discuss creating a three-dimensional crest for you church or school.

  • We needed an entry sign that would express the calibre of education that parents expected from Danebank. The gilded text and hand-sculpted crest on our Danthonia sign enhanced the image of the school's property and street frontage. It sent a message of excellence to prospective parents. The first sign was so effective we've commissioned six additional signs and a crest for the wall of our Administration office.
