Sign Painting

Mack & Meyer Mop

As most know, Mike Meyer, is the worldwide educator of hand lettering. We thought it would be logical to introduce a series of brushes that he could introduce to all his students in his extensive travels. We have been working on a series of lettering quills that would work well for both the professional and the beginner. We decided on a synthetic sable hair that is like no other synthetic on the market. This synthetic is the closest thing to real sable hair without having to pay the steep sable price. In the last year the price of pure sable has increased by fifty percent and I?m not sure that the price is stable yet! The synthetic sable is unusual in the fact, that it absorbs paint like natural hair. More importantly, it flows out of the brush in a controlled manner. This brush can be used with enamel, urethane and water based paint. We hope that you find this brush to be as versatile as its intended origin. Available in sizes 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16 (see chart below)

Red Lacquered or Plain Handles

  • Brown Kazan Quill
  • Attached Red Lacquered Handles
  • Graduated Hair Lengths
This brown quill is handmade in France & Germany by highly specialized brush makers. This lettering quill is an essential tool in every sign painter's kit. The brown quill is best suited for smooth surfaces such as glass or automotive surfaces. Brown Quills are slightly softer than the grey quills. Series 179: Brown Kazan Quill - Attached Plain Wood Handles - Graduated Hair Lengths (Other Lengths Not Available) Available in sizes from 0 to 30 (see chart below)

Black Lacquered or Plain Handles

The grey quill is also handmade in France & Germany and it is equally as important as the brown as an essential brush for the sign painter. The series 189 or 189L is a universal lettering brush. The grey hair has more snap than the brown. It is used for general commercial work such as signs, truck lettering, boats, etc. The grey hair is more durable than the brown, and this brush is suitable for lettering on most surfaces. Series 189: Grey (Talahutky) Lettering Quill With Attached Plain Wood Handle (Other Lengths Not Available)

New Mixed Quills

Mixture of Squirrel & Ox Hair

Plain lacquered handle

This is a total new concept for quills. These are not the same quality (soft) as our Pure Squirrel Quills (#179, #189). The sizing is completely different and should not be used to replace our regular Pure Hair Quill. These brushes are simply an alternative to give you a less expensive quill; a quill that is shorter in length and one that is a little stiffer. "Give it a try!!" Available in sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 16 (see chart below)

Sign Painting

Series 169

This quill was produced as a cost alternative to the traditional German quills. The erosion of the dollar versus the euro has inflated the price of our quills in the last few years. We decided it was time to produce an American made nickel plated ferrule quill to give the painter another cost conscious choice. The traditional quill will always have a place in the sign painter's kit. We have been having tremendous success with the Bobbo Super Quad brush hair so we decided to put that in this quill. The hair that is used is a black synthetic and blue squirrel mixture as opposed to the German quill that is made of pure squirrel hair. The quill has been put through the paces by several sign painters and the reviews have been outstanding. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, & 10
