Slate Memorials

Although we make hundreds of these smaller memorial plaques every year, we take great care to make sure your slate memorial is made just the way you want it. These plaques have a timeless quality and are usually made with unpainted lettering, sandblasted into the slate.  However we can paint the letters as long as they are 25mm high or blast the background away leaving the letters raised. The choice is yours.

For  smaller memorial plaques we normally use slate which is between 10mm and 12mm thick. This can be cut to any size. If you want your slate memorial on thicker slate (20mm, 30mm or 50mm)  CLICK HERE.

Raised Letters Slate Memorial
Raised and unpainted letters - border 07  - font Times Roman

We can add a line border with indented or square corners at a cost of £6.95. 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 also available - the cost is £10.95. The prices shown are for signs with a circumference of less than 1500mm

We can include simple pictures on the memorial. We have a selection CLICK HERE - or you can send in your own artwork - It must be a silhouette style image without any very fine lines or shades. The cost is £7.50 per standard image.
Another option is to add a full colour porcelain photo.

The letters are normally painted black, cream, silver, gold, white or left unpainted. For a more gentle natural effect we match Farrow & Ball Lichen - a pale green which looks lovely against the grey slate. Another natural look is F&B Purbeck Stone which is a very light grey. For other paint colours - click here. For a selection of fonts - Click here Letter size is normally adjusted to suit the size of the slate ordered, but if you have something particular in mind - just let us know .
