Welcome to the KGS website
I’m Kevin Shuttlewood, a Traditional Signwriter. I offer traditional Signwriting in Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and London.
I started my apprenticeship in 1972 and became a qualified signwriter in 1977.
I established KGS in 1982 and have experienced developments from traditional signwriting through to the digital age. I believe that if you require a sign to enhance and inform everyone about your business then a unique, bespoke traditional sign-written sign cannot be bettered.
Signboards are made mostly from WPB Birch plywood and painted with quality exterior paint. At least five coats of paint are applied, from primer to finished coat and then signwritten with signwriter’s enamel.
My business is set in an ideal area where Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and London are all accessible.
Should you need help with ideas for your sign, whether it be lettering or a logo, then I can produce designs for you.
