Improve the curb appeal of your property with this beautifully handcrafted slate plaque. Using natural, square cut slate, this weather resistant sign adds a uniquely elegant quality to the front of your home.
••DESCRIPTION•• -- Handcrafted in America at Sassy Squirrel Ink Studios, CA, we individually select every piece of slate and carve your chosen number with deep "V" cut bit. Your plaque is fully engraved and not sandblasted or laser cut like most other numbers. This gives an attractive depth to each number, allowing the number to stand out against the natural slate.
-- We offer 3 sizes: 18"x 9", 12"x6" or 9"x 6" Please note, this is a hand cut piece of slate with natural flaws and irregularities. You can choose a custom size with this slate up to 18"x18", please contact me directly for pricing.
-- This design has custom textured backgrounds. Whilst I don't recommend a flat color on this slate, I have many customers for whom the natural slate grey doesn't work. I am happy to create a custom textured background color with your choice of text color as well. The listing pictures are just an example of what is possible. Please contact me directly to discuss before you place your order!
••MOUNTING•• -- Great on door, mailbox , stone, brick or wood. You will have holes drilled in the slate for mounting and mounting hardware is included. Consult home improvement store for installation on your particular surface.
••THE HISTORY OF SLATE•• Slate is a very durable, fine grained, metamorphic rock formed in the earth over 400 millions ago. It has a very low absorption rate of water, which makes it perfect for outdoor conditions. Slate has two lines of breakability – cleavage and grain – which make it possible to split the stone into thin sheets. When broken, slate retains its natural appearance while remaining incredibly strong and durable. It is for these reasons that it has been so widely used in roofing, flooring, billiard tables and blackboards.. Slate is very user friendly giving you the durability and look of thick stone without being too bulky and heavy making it easy to hang or mount.
