Bespoke Slate Home Signs & Slate Address Signs


The slate home signs and slate business signage 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. We cut our slate onsite to any size you require. We can also polish both sides for double sided slate signs. Our local blacksmith has made some special wrought iron hangers for the doubled sided slate signs. See Fittings We also make wooden posts with hanging arms as well as Wrought Iron Brackets Click Here. As for letter colour - we have far more choices along with the standard white. Black is also popular along with gold and silver. For a more natural gentle colour we match the Farrow & Ball colour Lichen which is light green, or F&B Purbeck Stone which is a very light grey.

BORDERS
We can add a line border with indented or square corners to your slate sign at a cost of £6.95 for most home signs.

Another interesting technique is the border in relief where the slate around the outside of the sign is blasted away leaving the required shape in the middle.
The cost of a border in relief is £8.95     Decorative borders - unpainted £6.95, painted £9.95

When the letters are raised and unpainted there is no extra cost for surrounding or line borders. We can use decorative borders for raised and unpainted. Borders are more expensive for larger slate signs due to the time it takes to sandblast the stone - see below.

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. 2 holes are ideal on the 100mm high slate and 4 holes on larger slates.
If you do decide to use one of the many adhesives now available we would suggest additional support is used for the largest signs.
We can recommend CT1 all purpose adhesive This can hold signs up to 10kg
