We can apply gold paint to the cardinals (NSEW) or to any other part of the weathervane at extra cost. Gold paint will glint in the sun, and remain bright for many years.
OLD ENGLISH LETTERS
Most of the illustrations on this website depict cardinals in Times New Roman, but we also offer an alternative, Old English style, as below
The scrollwork under the letter arm on the majority of illustrations on this website is made from 12mm x 3mm mild steel. We also offer an alternative, heavier scroll made from 6mm square steel. This is available on medium and large, but not petite size weathervanes.
Any weathervane can be hand coloured by our resident artist. For a price for any design not shown on this website, please contact us. PLEASE ALLOW 5/6 WEEKS FOR HAND PAINTED WEATHERVANES TO BE COMPLETED FROM DATE OF ORDER. If this can be completed any sooner it will be.
We are constantly adding to our range of designs. If you would like a new design, please contact us. The procedure is as follows:
- We do not charge for design work if we think the new design would be a useful addition to our range. Most, but not all, animals, birds, dogs, tractors etc. will fall in to this category. Other ew designs will be charged for based on the amount of time involved, but typically £100-£150. Alterations to existing designs will be considered as if they were a new design and charged for accordingly.
- We will prepare drawings and computer files on receipt of a firm order with delivery address and payment details (but remember we do not take payment until the order is ready for despatch). We will then send the drawing to you for approval before we commence manufacture. At this point you can make any minor adjustments you feel necessary. We can research any subject matter, or we can work from illustrations supplied by you.
