About NGS Gilders of London 07960113799

Hi I’m Nick Garrett, a dedicated, London Signwriting and Gold Leaf Gilding artist, specialising in traditional, retro and modern trend leading work. It’s more than just a job this to me…  I lead youngster into the craft, design fonts, create, teach and share.

I grew up in West Norwood, Herne Hill and Brixton, painted my first sign aged 15, in the summer of 76 and loved it!  

My grandfather taught me lettering and our family consisted of letter carvers, ship builders, aviation designers and couture dress makers. So it’s a crafts based family heritage that feeds my creative business today… and the sheer joy of working hard for my clients by wielding the brush full of magic.

Their success is my measure.


Designing each and every wonderful letter 

I offer a comprehensive sign service with a career spanning 38 years in a wide range of disciplines which really help apply extra quality to your final product.  It’s more than just classic, beautiful plain English signwriting that you will find here. There’s a passion and a heart for starters, but essentially this is a specialist team with the highest levels of expertise at hand.

Design is everything and it often saves you time and money.  My materials are selected for all the right qualities, finest English and Italian gold, and I have designed my own series of super-sharp brushes, custom made to suit my hand and those of my team.

Gold leaf for Fred Perry London

NGS make some of the finest gilding in the world and across London my designs and renowned lettering are making peoples’ special places come magically to life.

It’s a passion working with this fabulous material.

Zest, vitality, too many descriptives spring to mind, what is really important is that with NGS there is a level of craftsmanship that few match simply because we love gold and what we can do with it.

We really want you to own some NGS Gold … just  contact us.
