Liane Barker

Traditional Signwriter & Gold Leaf Specialist


Welcome to Barker Signs. I am Liane Barker, second generation Trade Qualified Signwriter with over 40 years experience in Signwriting and Design.


Barker Signs was established in 1964 by my father, Maurie Barker and in 1981, I joined him as an apprentice signwriter, receiving the award of "Top Apprentice for Queensland" in 1982.


I took over Barker Signs in 2019 and continue to offer unique custom Hand Painted and/or Gold Leaf signage for your business that will stand the test of time and outlast any vinyl sign or digital print.


It's not as expensive as you think.


Gold leaf signage lasts decades and a hand painted sign can be touched up easily in years to come after exposure to the elements making it a wise financial investment for you and your business.

I specialise in working closely with you to create the perfect sign re-brand that will not only advertise your business, it will set you apart from your competition. 

I can tailor a sign to suit your budget by offering you the choice of either a full hand painted sign, a combination of paint and gold leaf or a full gold leaf creation.

A hand painted sign not only looks good, it's better

for the environment. 


The carbon footprint of the materials I use in creating a hand crafted sign are minimal compared to the large waste created by digital and vinyl signage - all of which ends up in landfill during production and after the signage fades from our harsh Queensland sun!
