Slate Memorials

 

Slate is a beautiful stone with lovely natural markings. It is available in three thicknesses - 12mm, 20mm, 30mm & 50mm and we can cut it to any size you want. The 12mm is ideal for smaller wall mounted slate memorial plaques and the 50mm is used for slate memorial tablets or lawn memorials.

 

When we receive an order the designer will create the design to your specifications. If requested a proof can be sent out to make sure it is just the way you want it. A stencil is cut from a special rubber and the memorials moves to the workshop to be sandblasted.

 

Many stone memorials are left unpainted, but if you want the wording to stand out it can be painted in a number of different colours. White, gold and black are the most popular.

 

If you prefer not to have natural markings in the stone or need small text, slate corian might be preferable - see below

Granite Memorials

 

The granite memorials are available in two thicknesses - 20mm and 30mm, and six colours. Granite is much harder than slate and the surface can be highly polished. As with slate memorials we can cut granite memorials to any size.

 

The lettering is sandblasted into the sign and it is then painted. As well as a large choices of fonts there is a huge library of images to add to your wording. The small letter size for granite is 20mm high.

Slate Memorial with Full Colour Insert

 

The colour photo adds a new dimension to the slate memorial. The colour image is on a porcelain plaque which is weather proof and frost proof. It has been fired in a kiln and is also very resistant to fading.

 

The plaque is inset into the slate for a very attractive memorial indeed. We have a number of standard sizes but as always we will make it just the way you want it.

Stone Like Corian

Although corian isn't actually stone, it does look and feel like stone. This is because it is made from stone dust bonded with a resin. It will have a more uniform appearance than stone without natural marks or features and we find many of our customers prefer this.

 

We often use it for memorial plaques as it has advantages over stone in that the wording can be smaller and detailed images used.
