Purdy's brushes are hand-made without compromise, in the same way they were over 85 years ago. Each Purdy brush is "signed" by the person who made it. This is done by a personalized sticker with the brush makers signature. This is a mark of pride in a job well done. Purdy wants professional painters to know the tool in their hand was made to the highest level of quality by someone who cares as much as they do when it comes to putting their reputation on the line.
