Business Plaques

Designer/makers of high quality Welsh slate business plaques.

At the Slate Workshop we only use real Welsh slate to make durable commercial slate plaques that reflect the image of your business. We can incorporate your logo, or provide original artwork. We take great pains to ensure the project exceeds our clients’ expectations. See testimonials and judge whether we achieve this goal.

Individually designed

Our commercial slate name plaques are made to suit your requirements. We will make almost any shape or size of slate and have a variety of fonts available. Enhance your sign with hand drawn and engraved artwork or logo and finish the cut design and lettering in either paint or gold leaf...more info

Hand-cut lettering or sandblasted?

To keep costs and delivery times within targets, our lettering for slate commercial signs is usually sandblasted. Hand-cut lettering can be used however, contact us for more details.

If the company plaque is to be inside a building, we recommend that we oil the slate. This both enhances the slate colour, making the slate darker, and prevents fingerprints from showing.

If the plaque is to be outside, it is better un-oiled, as the oil would degrade in the rain and sun, making unattractive run marks


Prices for slate company plaques depend on size and number of letters and/or size of business plaque required.

Hand cut lettering takes much longer to do and so is more expensive, as is gold leaf compared to paint finishes. Shaping the slate takes time, so the simplest option of a straight rectangle will be cheaper than a chipped oval, for example.

We like to work closely with our clients- each piece is treated individually - so we don’t have standardised order forms.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can then give you a price and delivery date for your order.
