British Boulders, British Quarries.
Sourcing our stone boulders from British quarries offers several benefits, including high-quality natural stone, sustainable sourcing practices, local sourcing, customizable sizes, cost-effectiveness, and consistent quality. If you are considering using natural stone for your project, Stone Sign boulders are the perfect choice.
Sourcing our boulders nationally ensures our transportation costs are minimised, reducing the need for expensive international shipping. We can also ensure our high level of quality control, consistency, and low environmental impact.
All vehicle travel routes – including our memorial installation fleet – are pre-planned to ensure each journey uses the most efficient route.
We at Stone Sign Co. are proud to present our expanding range of Eco-Friendly materials.
Crafted by Man & Machine.
Our expert stonemasons can create a range of custom stone boulder signs and monolith stones that come in all shapes, sizes and natural stone materials. Designed to suit your exact requirements, these bespoke stone pieces can be used in many different ways.
The boulders are trimmed using our CNC circular saw to give it a flat base for fixing to the ground foundation by a professional technician.
The saw itself is lubricated with water that drains to a purpose-designed water-recycling system that circulates and recycles water with over 95% retrieval efficiency.
A rubber template of your design is then applied to the desired face of the boulder ready for sandblasting by one of our expert craftsmen.
Sandblasting is our process of using high-pressure air to propel abrasive materials such as our various grades of sand, to inscribe custom designs, text and patterns on the boulder’s natural stone surface.
Gilded and painted inscriptions have a rich history and have been used for centuries to convey important information and messages. They are often associated with historic buildings, monuments, and artifacts, giving them a sense of cultural and historical significance.
Our inscription is highly legible and highly durable. Gold leaf and high-quality paint can withstand the effects of time and exposure to the elements, making them ideal for outdoor applications such as on or bespoke boulders.
Our range of vibrant and durable paint colours is extensive – ensuring you get the most perfect bespoke artwork possible.
Fixed for Good.
Our expert fixers will take care of every aspect of the boulder fixing process. From laying a solid concrete foundation prior to transportation, craning and fixing the boulder to its final standing place.
The boulders are reinforced by internally-fitted carbon steel rods and are further secured by our specialist mortar.
Installation of our boulders are performed by BRAMM certified fixers
To Stand the Test of Time.
