Types of Blasting
This is where only the letters are blasted out, leaving the background untouched. This is both very common and cost effective. However it usually means that the letters are painted (adding to the cost).
Painting letters can help improve the visual impact, making the sign visually more attractive and easier to read from greater distance.
We use a high quality sign writing enamel for maximum life span. Which is available in 7 standard colours, white, black, gold, silver, red, green and blue. Other colours are available on request.
Is where the letters are raised from the stone. We do this by removing material from around the background leaving the letter intact.
This type of blasting means that the letters do not need painting to achieve a good impact factor.
The background can be painted to give further accentuation of the lettering.
The same range of colours as Letter Relief are also available.
This house number sign has had the background relieved and then been lightly brushed, this lifts the natural colour in the slate. The brushed effect is only currently available in slate.
This is the same sign as above except this image was taken prior to the brushing process. This
un-brushed finish is slightly course, and has a better contrast ratio.
