To make these House Signs we use a variety of spanish slates which are speckled grey in appearance. It is typically 5.5mm thick, with visible mineral inclusions across the surface (see images for reference) The paint is white and the sealer is a matt varnish.
MAKING A SLATE STABLE SIGN
Because these signs are machine cut, they have flat edges and square corners. Once we have cut the slate to size, it is washed and then engraved. After that, we drill the holes for fixing before moving onto the painting process. This process is completed by hand, and each sign has 8 coats of paint, applied using a 1mm brush to fill in the area of each letter. This process takes between 2-3 weeks to complete as each coat must be fully annealed before applying the next. Once the painting process is finished the slate is sealed with 2-4 coats of a matt sealer. This sealer protects the paint and enhances the overall appearance of the Sign.

FIXING YOUR SLATE STABLE SIGN
When fixing your Sign it is important to tighten the screws gradually, moving from one to another. Over tightening one, could result in cracking. It is important to have the appropriate wall fixings and screw length to ensure your sign is stable and secure when mounted.
Generally these Signs do not require any maintenance. However, most customers tell us they like to wipe them down occasionally to keep them looking crisp. Naturally the elements will eventually weather the appearance and so a periodic reapplication of sealer will help to slow this weathering process.
All measurements are approximate. Even though we take every care to make each item to the dimensions specified, slight variations are possible and should be anticipated.
