Standard sizes are 100mm, 150mm and 225mm in height.
All our stone can be cut to any size. With the help of our designers, the various fonts, borders and images you can create a sign for your which is absolutely unique. The finish is natural - smooth and not highly polished.
Round and oval slate signs are slightly more expensive than straight edged signs due to the extra cutting costs involved. However they can look very effective with the right font and an interesting graphic. Sizes up to 600mm
If you are looking for something a little different why not use the coloured slate. We have a range of colours including Brazilian green, silver shine, ocean, copper and silver nickel. Sizes up to 295mm x 575mm are available.
The large signage is cut from slate which is between 20-30mm thick. Sizes can be up to 600mm x 2000mm. Unpainted lettering can be as small as 15mm. Painted lettering along with raised and unpainted must be at least 25mm high.
House numbers don't need to be boring! We create thousands of numbers each year and everyone is different. We cut to size and use your choice of font along with a border or image if required. Lots of paint colours too - why not try the new pearlescent blue.
Normally the lettering is sand-blasted into the stone. We can however do the process in reverse and sand blast away the background.
This process can be done with all the sizes and types, but is not quite as successful with the coloured.
There is a range of celtic fonts along with celtic borders and symbols which can be used to create individual celtic style signs.
As we are sand blasting into the stone please choose the bolder borders and symbols.
LETTERS - Font and Colour
The letters are usually painted silver, gold, white, grey or black, but we as standard we also have ivory, intense white, dark green, lime green, pearlescent green, crimson, purple, dark blue, mid blue and pearlescent blue. Another technique is to blast the background away and leave the lettering raised and unpainted. When leaving letters raised we must use bold fonts without any fine line.
