Large Slate Signs

At our workshops we are able to cut slate to almost any size to create you slate sign or memorial stone tablet just the way you want it. We have a good stock of slate in various thicknesses but can obtain extra large peices of slate quite quickly. 

The Large Slate Signs are made with natural slate with smooth, but not highly polished surface. This shows the markings and grain of this lovely material - each piece is different.

If you would prefer a sign without any grain or natural slate markings, we suggest using engraved slate corian.

SIZES
For large signs and memorial stones we use slate which is between 20mm - 30mm or 50mm thick. These can be cut to a specific size. If you want small signs or signs on thinner slate (10 - 15mm) please CLICK HERE.

LETTERS
The letters for slate signs are normally painted white. Black is also used as are silver and gold. For a more natural gentle colour we match the Farrow & Ball colour Lichen which is light green. Another natural look is F&B Purbeck Stone which is a very light grey. We can match other F&B colours @ a cost of £55. We can also blast the background away leaving the letters raised and unpainted. When leaving letters raised we must use bold fonts without any fine line. For a selection of fonts - CLICK HERE Further fonts can also be seen on the Gallery Page. Letter size and layout is normally adjusted to suit the sign, but if you have something particular in mind - use our sign sizing and layout tool. You can also use this tool to ask for a quote.

BORDERS
We can add a line border with indented or square corners. Another interesting technique is the border in relief where the stone around the outside of the sign is blasted away leaving the required shape in the middle.

We also have a selection of decorative borders - Click Here - The decorative etched border can be painted or left unpainted.

HOLES
It is difficult to drill holes into slate as it requires plenty of water to keep the slate cool. We can drill the holes for you @ £1.10 per standard hole. £1.95 per countersunk hole. (At least 4 holes with more on the largest signs.)
If you do decide to use one of the many adhesives now available we would suggest additional support is used for the heavier signs such as thick slate.
We also sell a very strong adhesive - Grab n Bond

POSTS
Posts can be supplied if required - click here. The 30mm slate sign to the right has been bolted to 4"x4" oak posts. Extra support has been provided by the oak support rail. This is a very heavy sign which need three men to move it!

PICTURES

We can include simple pictures. We have a selection CLICK HERE - or you can send in artwork - It must be a silhouette style image without any very fine lines or shades. The cost is £7.50 for a standard images up to 100mm
