Gorgeous! Looks fantastic and it came in a timely manner to USA. Thanks, Julia
My signs turned out great - exactly what I was looking for. The seller was very helpful when I was working out exactly what I wanted, and gave great customer service throughout. My signs are now up on the wall and I’ll definitely be returning for future projects. Highly recommend this seller!
The Difference Between Smooth & Natural Slate
We have two main types of slate on offer for our slate house signs, these are smooth and natural.
Smooth slate, also known as honed slate, is polished down to create a flat surface and making it uniform in appearance. While natural slate, also known as riven, keeps the natural grooves and creases in the face of the slate.
Below are examples to give you an idea on the appearance of each.
Smooth (Honed) Slate
Smooth slate is polished down to create a soft flat surface, giving it a uniform and even appearance.
Natural (Riven) Slate
Unlike smooth slate, natural slate isn't polished down, leaving the natural grooves and creases on its surface.
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 longlasting material.
The Bespoke Sign House are the house sign specialists, 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.
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 which 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.
