Laser engraved slate signs are a natural product and as such the engraving colour will vary between 'grey' and 'off white', in addition, the slate sign engraving will darken with prolonged water exposure but will return to it's original color once dried. We are able to seal the slate signs in order to avoid this happening, please advise if you require this free service on purchase.
"Laser engraving, and laser marking, is the practice of using lasers to engrave or mark an object. The technique does not involve the use of inks, nor does it involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface and wear out. These properties distinguish laser engraving from alternative engraving or marking technologies where bit heads have to be replaced regularly or inks have to be used". (Wikipedia 2012)
