Granite Wedges for Mounting Plaques

When a large amount of small text is required we suggest mounting an engraved corian memorial plaque onto a granite wedge. As standard we use a polished silver grey granite or a polished black granite which are made in the sizes listed below. Stock sizes are very good value but bespoke sizes and other colours can also be quoted for.

We can engrave the letters directly into the granite wedge. We do this using our sand blasting technique for larger letters and engraver for small lettering.

We can use any of the fonts on our list but for the smaller lettering suggest using a bolder font without serifs.

Granite memorial wedge with laser etched image

Laser Etched Detailed Image
When including an image on your memorial stone wedge we would normally sand carve them along with the wording. However where a fine detailed image is required this is not possible. We have developed a technique using a laser where we can use these detailed images.

It would also be possible to include a block of small text - maybe a poem using this method.

We have recently purchsed a new engraving machine which creates detailed images  using a diamond tipped needle hitting the granite. It can even be used for photos.

The blank granite wedges come to us highly polished. Sometimes our customers prefer a more natural finish. We have two options here. We can sandblast the surface to reveal the natural granite - cost £5. Aternatively we can sand the top surface to a matt finish at a cost of £15. The Celtic Grey Granite looks very attractive with the sandblasted finish but most people prefer the black with a gloss finish.

Blank slate wedge for plaque mounting. Slate wedge with engraved white lettering.

Slate Wedges with Engraved Lettering

These are very attractive especially when wet as all the layers of slate on the surface of the wedge look incredible beautiful. The surface of the wedge is polished to a silky smooth finish. However please be aware that the slate will have natural features running through it. Click here to see a typical example. Engraved lettering on slate wedges can be as small as 15mm high - this is smaller than granite. For small letters use simple fonts without serifs. As standard letters can be left unpainted or painted - black, grey, cream, white, gold, Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone which is light grey or F&B Lichen which is light green. For other paint colours - click here.

As with the granite wedges, images can be used on the slate wedges - details as above.
