My website’s name is my family motto – “ex sudore vultus – from hard work comes beauty”. This is the essence of what I aim for in every piece of work I produce.

Using the best materials and the finest craftsmanship, I can make your banner idea a reality.

Everything I do – in my work and in my home life, as a teacher, craftsman, husband and father – is dedicated to my beloved grandad, Jim. He taught me to be a proper man, and the importance of taking pride in my work. 14 years after losing him, I talk to him in my dreams and I still hear his words of advice talking me through my work.

Measure twice, cut once. You can always cut a bit more off, but you can’t stick it back on.

Jim Sweatman – 1922-2006

Always buy the best tools you can afford.
