About Us


For decades, the name “Big Nick” and Garage No.7 have been synonymous with high quality Custom Paint, Lettering, Pinstriping and Airbrushing in the custom automotive and motorcycle industry. After 40 plus years I’ve come full circle back to my sign painting roots but with a twist. I’ve combined my lettering skills with my love of history and antiques creating Period Perfect Vintage Signs, a branch of Garage No.7. These are not your typical craft fair or mass produced imports but Handmade, Hand-Painted and Hand Lettered bespoke works, made with some of the same materials and all of the craftsmanship of a sign writer a century ago. Each sign is unique in its detail, and when possible reclaimed and salvaged woods and hardware are used along with our painstaking aging techniques to create a contemporary sign with a true vintage soul.
