When a commissioned sign turns out particularly well, or it is unusual, we sometimes photograph it for inclusion in our portfolio. Occasionally, a piece has such universal appeal that we are asked to reproduce it many times over. As the original artwork is owned by us, and the set-up cost is already covered, this means that you get a personalized sign that provides "something different" for much less than it would normally cost.
The most popular ones can be seen here. Of special note is the "Queen's Plaque" which was commissioned for the Queen by the Kinsman Club of Canada. We have reproduced it with the original text - "Flowers are Heaven Scent" -and numerous other times with memorial and commemorative messages.

Note: While we have attempted to color match these photos to the actual stone colors, keep in mind that each piece of slate can vary in color, texture,and tone, even when they come from the same quarry. Also, transmission of these images over the internet and variables in computer monitors can create variations in the colors you are viewing.
