I engrave personalised signs and gifts for the home and garden here in Derbyshire made from reclaimed ad natural slate and wood, collecting redundant and natural materials and transforming them into beautiful signs that people love to give and receive.
I started making my personalised signs in 2011, almost by accident, and I love it. It all started when our new engraving machine arrived. Impatient to see it running, I started engraving on any scrap I could find in the workshop. I then went outside and collected some old bits of slate. Not long afterwards, the first home and garden signs were created!
Today, as I make each piece, I love to think about its journey, the stories it could tell of the past, and the story it tells in the messages I engrave.
I hope you'll love giving and receiving our engraved signs and gifts as much as I love making them!
