When you have been invited to enter someone’s house there is always the hope that you will be made to feel welcome and it is just as important with a website. So, here is the “Welcome” sign, in pewter, of course!
It was made for Holy Trinity Church in Cookham as one of six to be worn by stewards who greet people into the building on Sundays. The simple design shows a clearly visible bit of text in a suitable font, supported by a representation of the cross that is carried in front of the priests as they process during the Services. Being in modern pewter it looks good against any fabric whether plain or patterned.
We always aim to evolve the design of a bespoke piece with the client so that it will be appropriate to the event that they wish to celebrate, ideally incorporating visual references as well as text. This aspect of partnership is important to us so that the customer feels the extra bit of involvement. Sometimes the commission is for a single piece but we are in a position to make limitless numbers of cast pewter items, usually for corporate clients or for social groupings.
You can guarantee that if you meet us at one of the Craft Shows listed on our Events page you will be given a warm welcome at our stand, even though we will not be wearing an actual “Welcome” badge!
