We are proud that our slate signs are quarried, crafted, personalised, wrapped and packaged for you in the heart of the Lake District.
We engrave our slate signs in our Cumbrian workshop. We use a traditional V Cut method that cuts the lettering into the slate so that it looks clean and crisp and will never come off (it is not etched on the slate). All our slate signs are then polished on the edge to give them a beautiful finish.
The slate we use is Burlington slate, quarried just down the road from our workshop. We have picked it for its fabulous quality. It is a rich dark slate, that is frost proof and will not fade.
Finally, we paint the letters in an enamel white, gold or silver finish. The enamel paint will not weather and will last for years to come.
All of our signs come with two drilled holes at the side to make fixing them to a wall easy and we provide the screws, caps and wall plugs.
You can choose whether you would like the lettering in Upper Case (CAPITALS) or Mixed Case.
You can also choose if you would like to add a border (+£15).
As all of our signs are individually made in our own workshop please be in touch if you require a different size or lettering.
If your sign is a gift and you select to add a gift box your gift will come in a beautiful black box with a hand tied ribbon and we can add a gift message for you. If you would like to add a gift card designed by our local artist, Lucy Monkman, please see available options.
