The Barlow Tyrie inscription service may be used with most of our teak armchairs, benches, and seats. The inscriptions are normally placed on the top rail, but could be on the lower rail next to the chair seat, or even on a table top. The carving is in a traditional serif typeface using a ‘V’-shaped cut, which allows the inscription to be easily read from the side as well as from immediately in front. This ‘3D-lettering’ has an advantage over a standard ‘straight-cut’ letter that does not show as well. As an alternative to carved inscriptions, we offer bronze plaques with lettering set in cream vitreous enamel. A choice of lettering and font styles is available. The finished plaque is then recessed into the face of the rail and held in position using a special hidden vandal-proof fitting.
Plaques can allow you to be creative with your eternal message, as illustrated with the ‘musical notes’ plaque. You can add a celebratory message for an anniversary or a wedding gift. A choice of lettering and font styles is available – please enquire. All plaques would need to be priced as part of our bespoke service.
