Stone signs are simply magnificent, and here at The Sign Maker we love making sure we make your stone sign to the highest quality. Browse below to discover what type of stone sign might just be right for you.
Slate is a beautifully natural material that is smoothed but not highly polished. This results in an extremely smart sign that shows the markings of the grain superbly. Here at our workshops we can cut the sign into any size you like, including a range of different thicknesses. Furthermore, should you wish to have a hanging slate sign, we can polish both sides of the sign and have our blacksmith craft some high quality wrought iron brackets.
If perhaps you are someone that enjoys the heavy, high quality feel of stone but wants something a little more modern than our painted slates signs may be just right for you. The whole slate is painted with a hard wearing paint. We then sandblast away the letters, leaving behind a very effective sign. Furthermore, here at The Sign Maker we can match any Farrow and Ball colours, which makes it easier to choose the right sign for you.
Slate with raised lettering
These beautiful signs are something quite different from what you would normally see when it comes to stone signs. These signs have had the background sandblasted away, leaving the letter raised and unpainted. These enables the beauty of the natural slate colouring to come out in the wording of the sign. You can then choose between having the background left natural or to have it painted.
If perhaps you are someone who prefers to have a product that’s sourced a little closer to home then perhaps these appealing purbeck stone signs will suit.

This is an extremely durable and hard wearing material, perfect for those who would prefer not do any maintenance work on their sign.
For some slate might be a bit too simple, if you instead fancied something a little more luxurious than either granite, marble, quartz or limestone might be right for you.
