From 1993, Venture Graphics built its reputation by producing a wide variety of attractive carto/calligraphic originals for the publishing industry. The introduction of hand-drawn decorative maps and family trees has further increased our client base.
In satisfying the particular needs of today’s traditional fine art market, hand-lettered
gold leaf picture plaques complement and enhance any precious work of art. We mainly use Jelutong wood and Formica for gilded frames, with brass as an option. A recent innovation is to make use of clear Perspex.
Because these are done by hand, lettering styles can derive from Classic Roman through Decorative Italic to a modern Sans Serif form. The
labelling of paintings and objets d’art can thus be done in a way that perfectly suits the period.
Facsimile lettering and the restoration of old plaques combine the craft skills for which Venture Graphics has become renowned.
