Shaw & Sons offer a wide variety of hand illuminated scrolls, for such occasions as the conferment of the Honorary Freedom on an individual, or the Freedom of Entry granted to a regiment or other service body.
Documents are also produced in connection with the creation of Honorary Alderman, the presentation of messages of congratulations or thanks and certificates.
All scrolls are produced on vellum by skilled artists using traditional methods. Skin-free alternative parchment options are available on request.
This page gives examples of some of our work in a number of different styles. The styles each carry a reference number, but this does not limit your choice. Most documents are illuminated, employing the tasteful use of colour and gold and can be presented in a variety of ways - for example, mounted and framed, placed in a leather backing and/or in a casket, or mounted in a leather portfolio.
Most scrolls can be in either "portrait" (upright) or "landscape" format and may be of any size, although those inserted into a backing and casket may be subject to limitations.
