We have two main types of slate on offer for our slate house signs, these are labelled as smooth and natural across the website. Below are examples to give you an idea of the appearance of each.

Smooth slate texture example

Smooth Slate

Smooth slate is calibrated (aka polished down by hand) to create a glossy, flat surface which gives it a uniform and modern appearance.

Unlike smooth slate, natural slate isn't polished, instead the slates natural groovy texture is kept for its unique natural characteristics.

Buying Slate House Signs
A popular choice for homeowners all around the world, slate gives off a stylish and classy appearance while being a natural long-lasting material.

The Bespoke Sign House is the house sign specialist, combining both traditional engraving techniques with modern cutting-edge technology. If you’re looking for something to give off a stellar first impression without costing a small fortune, our slate signs are for you.

What's the difference between etched and engraved slate signs?

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.
