Stone House Sign / Home Name Plate

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

The lettering is engraved or sand blasted into the stone. You can choose your letter style from hundreds of fonts. The letter colour does not have to be white. Black looks fantastic or for a more natural gentle effect we match Farrow and Ball Lichen - a pale green which looks lovely on the grey. Click here to see some more unusual letter colours.

Slate house signs can also be created by blasting away the background leaving the letters slightly raised

Superior Welsh Slate Signs & Memorials.

Superior Welsh Slate House Signs & Memorials
Welsh slate is considered by many to be the best slate in the world. It is harder, denser and stronger than other slate and this makes it more durable with a longer lifespan. Another reason it lasts so well is that very little water is able to penetrate into it. It is therefore less susceptible to frost damage. Finally it has the advantage of far fewer minerals such as pyrite, which gives it a cleaner look. All this makes it perfect for top quality slate house signs and slate memorials.

Laser Etched Slate Signs & Memorials.

Laser Etched Slate Signs & Memorials
Using this method the slate is surfaced etched using a powerful laser. This technique is ideal where smaller text or detailed images are required which cannot be deep engraved or sandblasted into the slate. We are also able to laser etch good photos into slate. We can combine the two methods, whereby we deep engraved and paint the lettering and add a laser engraved photo or detailed image.

Laser etching takes us less time and materials than sand-blasting or deep engraving and therefore it is considerable cheaper.

(Write in notes box on order form and we will let you know the small extra cost)
