The Letterheads

Fifteen sign makers, known as Letterheads, from as far afield as Georgia, Iowa and Ontario, gathered at Pat and Ruth Welter’s Masterhand Signs’ shop Aug. 29 to Sept. 2 to share their knowledge, experiment with new paints and let loose their creativity.

They created some art, learned some new things and had plenty of fun as you can see from this video.

One wall of the Masterhand Signs shop was covered with paper for painters to try out lettering styles before using them on an actual project. The painting on the right hand side was painted by Bruce Ander of Calgary, Alta., in memory of Ed Roth, a famous pinstriper and custom hot rod designer who created the Rat Fink character.
