WE ONLY SUPPLY PET MEMORIALS WITH NATURAL (UNPAINTED ) DEEP ENGRAVED LETTERING: We recommend this option as the maintenance free option ideal for all exterior and interior memorial plaques.
WHICH TYPE OF STONE TO CHOOSE? All of the stones we supply are hard wearing and weather resistant, highly suitable for both interior and exterior plaques. Each type of stone has it’s own attributes apart from colour. The thickness of the stone may be the deciding factor. Please see below some information that may help you choose.
BUFF YORKSTONE 40mm thick: Very weather resistant Ideal for exterior and interior plaques. The 40mm thickness may be an issue if you are going to mount the plaque on the face of the wall indoors where the projecting stone may be a problem. However this thickness does make Yorkstone ideal for building-in to brickwork or for memorial ground plaques, or exterior wall plaques using hidden pins.
SANDSTONE CREAM OR GOLD 20mm thick: Very strong with superb weathering properties, ideal for exterior and interior plaques or wall and ground sited memorials Generally drilled for screw fixing for wall mounting, however the relative thinness does make these suitable for glue fixing to a wall.
WELSH SLATE 20- 40mm thick: The weathering properties of Welsh slate are legendary, available in various thickness’s so suitable for any type of commemorative or memorial plaque. Thinner plaques can be drilled for screw fixing or glued, thicker pieces are ideal for building-in or ground plaques.
SIZES: We have a range of standard sizes, please see drop down box above. We can cut special sizes at no extra cost.
The size of plaque you need may depend on the amount of text you want engraved.
As there is a practical limit how small we can deep engrave lettering, we recommend you contact our PLAQUES FREE DESIGN SERVICE.
We can then tell you if your inscription will fit on to your preferred size of plaque.
