Wet Sanding Slate Signs

We have now decided to wet sand all our slate signs – not just the larger ones. Although this does take more time and more skill we feel the result is well worth the extra effort. We also seem to be making far more signs using one of our thousands of standard images.

Dear Sign Maker Team

The sign I ordered as a present for my parents (Jane and David Pearson) arrived yesterday and they are really pleased with it – they said that it will make them smile every time they walk past it. They showed the sign to me via Skype and it looks great, so I am emailing to say thank you to everyone involved for producing and sending out a fantastic sign for my parents.

Kind regards

Large Wooden Estate Signs

We are making many more large wooden estate signs every week now. Thank goodness we now have the CNC router along with our new full time carpenter – Paul. Actually he is not really new as he has been working a day a week for the last ten years! He started his career in a cabinet makers workshop and now after many years in the building trade he is back in the workshop. He says he will not miss working up on exposed roofs in all weathers. When we have the biomass boiler installed he will be working in luxury!
