Our hanging signs are produced using the very finest Welsh slate. It is sourced from Blaenau Ffestiniog where it has been quarried, sawn into blocks, split by hand and dressed to give it a rustic edge. The mud and silt which forms this slate was laid down during Ordovician geological period, approximately 450 million years ago.
The designs we put onto our slate signs are only ever sandblasted, (they are NEVER printed, painted or put through a laser etcher). We believe that the finest quality slate deserves to be engraved by a skilled craftsman, not a computer. Every one of our signs is produced individually, so we can ensure that you end up with only the best quality product. These signs measure approximately 12 x 4″.
Due to the fact that all our signs are produced individually, we are more than happy to engrave custom designs just for you. We don’t require bulk orders and are more than happy to produce individual items.
