Personalised Slate and Wooden Gifts

At Hall of Names, our ethos is to work with carefully selected artists and crafts-people.  This includes those who make our personalised slate and wooden gifts. Our crafts people are UK-based specialists in their fields. This allows us to provide unique gifts with coats of arms from suppliers we can trust to offer quality, consistency and reliability.

Who Are They Made By?

Our slate cheeseboards, slate clocks and wooden bread boards are personalised for you by craftspeople at a workshop in Lancashire. Like us, they are an independent, family-run business.This means they really do show care and attention to what they do. With over 40 years’ experience in slate-craft, they are national experts in the personalisation of slate gifts.  We are proud to supply their expertise to our customers.

How Do They Do It?

We hand-pick and personalise lovely, quality gifts which are carefully crafted using traditional hand tools and techniques, or laser-cut with specialist equipment. We check each piece thoroughly for quality and suitability before dispatch, so that customers can be assured of the best of British quality.

How Do You Use Them?

Each of our slate tableware and personalised wooden gifts are treated before we despatch them.  You can use them with hot or cold foods and they are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. The slate is thick-quality and hand cut, making a lovely gift for a friend or loved one. Because the are a natural material  each piece of slate is unique in its decorative grain and texture. Keep your slate looking great. We recommend using a light coat of olive oil to retreat and enhance the lustre of the natural material. You can wash them using hot soapy water.

Why Do I Need One?

A slate or wooden cheese board or hand-crafted bread board makes a real centre-piece for any table.  Especially when we engrave this with your choice of coat of arms, this makes a real talking point. There is also the option to add your own personal message, to create a stunning and unique gift to cherish for years to come. Furthermore, all of the wood we use to personalise boards is selected for quality and durability.  Not only that, we also source them in a sustainable way, so you can buy with confidence. Furthermore, our slate clocks are available in square or round style, and will enhance any home, and the engraved coat of arms makes a real statement.
