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

Large granite and slate signs are heavy and if you want to fix them to posts it is advisable to provide extra support. This can be done with a support bar under the stone or by insetting the sign into the posts itself. The sign with posts can be sent out already assembled or flat packed (cheaper carriage)

Detailed Laser Etched Images on Slate and Granite
Usually the images on signs and memorials are sand carved into the stone with the lettering. For images with fine detail this is not possible. However, using a laser we have developed a technique to laser in this fine detail. We can also used this method to include blocks of smal text, maybe a poem within a memorial plaque. The cost is just an extra £10.
