These Grandpa signs make great gifts for Grandparents. Perfect for grandchildren to give on Father's Day, for birthdays or to celebrate Grandpa's new secret place.
I make each slate sign individually in my workshop in Crich, Derbyshire. I carefully cut the slate by hand, apply a coating of Danish Oil then engrave through the finish leaving the engraved area in its natural state.
I then finish the sign with a galvanised steel rope which won't rust or rot. Being flexible, the steel rope is also easier for you to hang than solid wire hangers.
Grandpa will love his unique sign. each one has different textures and tones. After cutting the slate by hand, I treat it with Danish oil then engrave through the finish, leaving the engraved area in its natural state. As it is engraved, the text won't peel.
Choose the options from the drop down boxes. I make slate signs for Grandpa's Garden, Greenhouse, and Grandpa's SHED. You can also choose Grandpa's Workshop.
If you want to personalise your sign for Grandpa, perhaps adding a grandchild's name, such as 'Grandpa and Lily's Hideaway', I offer a personalisation service, just follow this link:
Your sign is made from reclaiamed slate and the hanger is galvanised steel wire rope.
Each piece of slate is different in texture and may contain small pieces of pyrite (Fool's Gold) which is a naturally occurring mineral in the slate. We only engrave pieces of slate we would be happy to receive ourselves. Being a natural product, no two pieces are the same, making each one truly unique.
