    There are a ton of these signs on my area of Florida, glossy gold 3D letters. Gemini doesn't have anything this shiny. Any ideas? I have to match letters like this. 2019-04-09 18.08.14.jpg

    Hmm ... that just seems to be a plastic supplier. I'm wondering where I can get lettering like this made. They really are ubiquitous in my area, likely 10% of the signs are like this (various fonts and sizes of fonts, but all shiny gold). Most of the signs like this are at least 10 - 20 years old. I wonder if someone was buying Gemini lettering and then gold-leafing them? Here area couple of additional examples. Pasco County FL 2019-05-10 18.40.40.jpg 3.jpg 2018-05-15 20.13.38.jpg

    Gold leaf does last 15 + years. I think that is the most likely option. They are deffinatley not brass/ bronze. Had a fire dept. Come in 2 weeks ago and they got sold some gold vinyl that didnt last but 8 years. The founder of my company gold leafed the trucks 18+ years ago and they still look good

    Turns out they are, indeed, gold leaf. I found the guy who does them, and he's right in my town although he ships worldwide. Nice guy, we're going to be doing some work together - he's been written up in Signcraft magazine, his work is amazing! https://www.goldleafletters.com/
