Engraving onto Slate
Ardosia slate bespoke, engraved, house name and number signs for properties are an increasingly popular way to personalise and improve the ‘kerbside appearance’ of a property. All cut from the high-quality slate imported by us from selected quarries in Brazil, the colour and texture of the slate signs for houses can be selected to suit the material and position of the proposed site, which should also dictate the size of the slate name/number sign, and the text style used.
Signs are hand made by our own craftsmen, at our facility in North Devon, to the customer’s specification, although advice on all aspects of the design is readily available. We are not restricted to ‘lettering’ and ‘numbers’, graphics can also be engraved and coloured.
Once the colour of the slate and the size (from very small to very large achievable) of the slate sign has been determined, there are still many choices to be made: Our craftsmen will cut the material to your preferred shape.
Materials other than slate can also be considered and our craftsmen will be happy to advise on suitability.
How will the slate house sign be mounted? Consideration must be given to the size, thickness (weight) and shape of the sign, as well as the material that will be providing the background and support. Will adhesive be used for fixing or are screw holes required? Specify screw holes, position, number and size, at time of ordering. We will be happy to advise when we know where and on what material the sign will be mounted.
Remember that signs can also be manufactured to provide directions (either in text or symbols), commercial property and building name signs, information boards or as purely wall decoration for either interior or exterior use. Almost any of our products can be engraved and we will be happy to advise on any project you may be considering.
