Stone House Sign / Home Name Plate

At our workshops in Devon we have a large stock of slate and other stone including various granites and marbles to make your house sign or home name plate. We first select a piece of slate or stone to suit the sign. It is then cut to size and polished.

The lettering is engraved or sand blasted into the stone. Slate house signs can also be created by blasting away the background leaving the letters raised. Have a look at our Gallery our Pinterest Board

Raised slate lettering

Slate House Sign with Raised Lettering
This is a new type of slate house sign which looks very smart indeed.  It can be designed with or without a border and to any size. The background is blasted away and painted, which leaves the slate lettering raised and proud of the background.

Limestone house sign

Limestone House Sign
The  limestone house sign is a recent addition to our range of stone signs. We came across the limestone while looking for new marbles and fell in love with it. If you study the stone you can actually see little fossilized creatures in the limestone. The stone is polished to a smooth matt finish and will be very long lasting. The sign to the left also shows some of our new paint colours.

Slate house numbers can made in several sizes and in all sorts of styles. We have a variety of ideas on the page to look at but you can choose your own font, border, logo, colour etc. Prices start at £12.50 for a simple 100mm x 100mm (4" x 4") house number. Oval and round plaques also available.

Slate doorstep

Personalised Slate Doorsteps
These are really unique and add a lovely touch to the entrance of your home or business. Can be cut to any size. Price includes two images. As these are unpainted it is best to choose a bold font. The sand blasted design also adds grip to the step as smooth slate can be slippery in the wet.

Oval Name Plate

Round and Oval Name Plates
Round and oval slate signs are slightly more expensive than straight edged signs due to the extra cutting costs involved. However they look very effective in certain settings and can be worth the extra cost. Sizes from 150mm - 600mm ( 6 inches - 24 inches).
