We do not make slate signs anymore – we just cannot keep up with the work and the HDU house signs are so popular.
The only thing we will do with slate if someone really wants, is artwork. We did this for a company we know in Germany called Sannerz Designs.
You take a picture (in this case their logo) and blast away the background. The background is then gilded with real gold leaf. It makes a very stunning sign.
If you have a piece of artwork you want done like this, you can simply contact us and we will see what we can do.
Sorry for not posting for so long. November was a crazy month, with everyone ordering signs for Christmas presents, December was about the same, and for some reason, the “post Christmas slump” has not happened yet.
One sign we did for a Christmas Present was Widgeon Close. The customer wanted to make sure that his sign looked life-like and really portrayed the widgeons.
We promised him that it would – and here is what he said:
I have now received my ‘Wigeons’ house sign and must admit it has managed to match your bold claim. Yes it is perfect and better than my wife and I dared expect. Please feel free to quote me. Yes it is beautiful.
The sign was made in HDU of course, but with a relief carving of the ducks. This was then painted, but it is the sculpting that gives it the dimension and feel.
Sculptings can be request on any sign, just ask.
