Polished Or Natural Slate - What's The Difference?
We have two main types of slate on offer for our slate house signs, these are labelled as Polished and Natural across the website. Below are examples to give you an idea of the appearance of each.
(Engraved & Painted) Polished Slate
Polished slate, as the name suggests, is polished down to create a glossy, flat surface. This gives it a uniform and modern appearance.
(Laser Etched) Natural Slate
Unlike polished slate, natural slate isn't worked, instead the slates natural groovy texture is kept for its unique natural characteristics.
Buying a Slate House Sign
'Laser Etched' or 'Engraved & Painted'?
We offer both etched and engraved lettering options for your slate house sign. Etched lettering uses a laser to mark the surface of the slate, giving a more natural appearance. Whereas engraving is done by hand with a sandblaster, creating deeper grooves into the face of the slate which can be painted to a colour of your choice. You can choose which option you’d prefer when you select a template to edit.
Are slate house signs good?
Slate stone is a natural resource that is long-lasting, with highly aesthetic characteristics. It gives a much more natural and stylish appearance, increasing kerb appeal when compared to other artificial alternatives such as plastic house signs.
