Old Soul Sign Co., owned by Cleveland artist Alan Giberson, is a small scale sign shop located in Cleveland, Ohio that specializes in hand painted signage and gold leaf lettering.
Hand painted signage is somewhat of a lost art. In the 1980s, folks figured out how to use computers to cut out vinyl. At that point, any person who could figure out software, could open a sign shop. However, this took the art and craftsmanship out of the industry. Due to that, a lot of businesses look the same nowadays.
This company was established by Alan Giberson, who had found lettering as a hobby. After really getting into the craftsmanship behind it, learning through old books and travelling far for seminars and workshops, he opened up his own shop on the west side of Cleveland.
Alan served as an assistant to world-renowned street artist SAM3 when he came to Cleveland to paint a mural on the Garret Morgan surge tank in 2018.
