Slate4U was established in October 2012 in Shankill, Co. Dublin. Originally inspired by a family holiday in Valentia Island, Co. Kerry, with its historic slate quarry. The attraction and beauty of natural rocks led to wondering how this material could be used in everyday life and the creation of the first standing clock which is called “Number One”.
In time, many other beautiful items made from hand–crafted natural slate were designed. Each piece of slate is unique as it is a natural material. It may contain elements of Pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold). The techniques used include Hand Engraving, Hand Painting and Laser Engraving.
The range includes different types of PLAQUES and FRIDGE MAGNETS with engraved Celtic symbols, famous quotes and sayings. If you are looking for a unique, personalised gift, Slate4U can engrave a special message, name, surname, poet’s quotation, old Irish saying, Celtic design, image or logo onto slate. Slate4U make all kinds of house signs and door numbers. Each house sign is customised to the client’s requirements. You can choose the size, style of lettering as well as image, while they provide the ideal end product.
Slate4U created the unique Puffin magnets for Clifftops.
