Slate and Granite memorial stone wedges

Memorial Stone Wedges

All our stone memorial wedges do look beautiful. Tell the designers your ideas and they will create the layout just the way you want it. If you are not sure of the font they can show you a couple of different ones to choose from.

To make the memorial more personal why not add an image or two. We have a range of standard images or ask the designers to find something for you. We can even laser etch detailed images or inset a full-colour panel.

Once the design has been agreed your stone wedge will go into production. The computer cuts a special rubber stencil which is applied to the stone. The letters and images are sand-blasted out and it is then off to the paint room to paint the wording and images in the colour of your choice.

Honed slate memorial wedges with engraved wording

If the granite wedges are a bit too expensive, you could consider slate as an option.  It is cheaper but some people do prefer the less glossy finish –   maybe less ostentatious than the Granite.

Granite wedges for mounting plaques upon

Granite wedges are available without any engraved wording on them. This is normally for mounting plaques which are often made of stone like Corian. Engraved Corian plaques can have smaller text and more detail than engraved granite.

These are available in Black and Celtic Grey granite.

Plain slate wedges for plaque mounting

We do sell a lot of plain slate wedges for mounting plaques. The black aluminium plaques look great against the grey slate. It is actually quite cost-effective – the slate wedge can work to cheaper than a backing board and tree stake.

Laser etched small text and images

Laser Etched Images

For detailed images, we can inlay a painted panel (up to 150 x 150mm) into the stone. This is then placed under a laser and laser etched to show all the fine detail. It is an excellent technique with crisp clean lines. It is ideal for military crests. It can also be used for blocks of small text.

Full colour plaque inset into stone memorial

Full Colour Plaque Insert

This is a beautiful and long-lasting way of adding a full-colour image to your stone memorial wedge.

We sandblast a slight recess. This is painted the same colour as the lettering. We then insert an anodised aluminium plaque or a porcelain plaque into the recess. The result looks amazing and will last a very long time.
