can be personalised
A beautiful engraved slate personalised sign for your pet.
Treat yourself to a personalised sign for your guinea pigs, rabbits or dog, or give one as a beautiful and unusual gift.
They make great gifts for proud pet owners or for humans to give to their beloved furry friends.
Made of slate, they are quite resistant to gnawing, unlike wood. So these signs are ideal for places where they could be in danger of being eaten and make a great alternative to brass plaques for stables.
Choose your own words, for example Alice's Gorgeous Guineas, Sweep the Rabbit's House or Sam's Piggies Live Here, and I will create your own unique personalised sign. You can have up to 20 letters and characters on your sign, or for an extra £5, you can have up to 30 letters and characters.
Please write in lowercase or uppercase as you would like it to appear.
Choose your preferred font from regular, as 'Licorice & Dip's Pig House' or cartoon, as 'Emily & Sophie's Piggly Wigglys'.
I make these lovely signs in Derbyshire using locally reclaimed slate.
Being a natural product and reclaimed, every piece of slate has different, making each sign beautifully unique. I cut the slate by hand, 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 and the sign will last for years outside.
The signs are finished with a choice of two holes in the sides or a galvanised steel rope which won't rust or rot. The steel rope also hangs more easily than a solid wire as it is flexible.
Your sign is made from reclaimed slate and if you choose the option with a hanger, the hamger is made of galvanised steel.
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.
The size of my signs excluding the hanger is usually around 25cm wide x 10cm deep.
