Slate Signs 
Made to Measure

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 popular along Farrow & Ball colour Lichen which is light green, or F&B Purbeck Stone which is a very light grey. Click here to see colours. Memorial gold or silver also available @ £10. Memorial gold looks very similar to gold leaf.

For a more contemporary look we can reverse the painting process - first painting the slate and then lasering or sand blasting into the slate. Lasering can is useful in that it can be used for fine detail, sand blasting engraves more deeply. We will make it as you want it. Reverse painted slate sign.

Raised Slate House Sign

Slate House Signs
Font - Kelmscot Regular, Letters - white, Raised & unpainted border - CF039

We can add a line border with indented or square corners to your slate sign at a cost of £9.95 for most standard size house 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 £11.95    

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.

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

Simple Images
We can include simple pictures on any of the slate signs. We have a selection CLICK HERE available for £12.50- or you can send in your own artwork, which we can use for £34.50- It should be a silhouette style image without any very fine lines.

Detailed Images
We have developed a new method for using detailed images on slate signs which looks very effective indeed.

We first inlay the colour panel which can be any shape - oval, round, square, rectangular or anything else. We then use one of our lasers to laser-etch in the fine detail. The result looks amazing. The cost is just £10 more than a normal image.
