House signs by ashortwalk. 

Stunning and sustainable

We all like a quality house signs or house numbers next to our door. And although house name signs from materials like metal, wood, acrylic, aluminium are pretty common, the most used plaques are still the ones made from slate. We also love slate, but prefer to keep it where we think it belongs; in our soil. Here at ashortwalk we uniquely manufacture house signs made from recycled plastic plant pots that look and feel like natural slate. This not only prevents hundreds of tonnes of plastic going to landfill or even worse, our seas, it will also help to preserve our natural landscape. So scroll through our range and find your eco-friendly alternative to a slate sign!

House signs with a difference

We understand that well made and designed house signs can really finish your home or office. Ashortwalk have specialise for 15 years in designing pioneering eco products, for our house signs we set out to design a both contemporary and timeless plaque suitable for house signs and house numbers. It’s not easy but after setting up the UK’s first plant pot collection scheme we’ve managed to develop a range of quality robust house signs and house number signs made from recycled plant pots. So, a sustainable product which looks stunning and helps to preserve the environment.

Slate house signs and numbers

We love slate. We love both the rough, natural look mixed with the contemporary look and feel. However, what we do not like is the effect slate mining has on the environment, scarring the landscape forever. So we prefer to keep it where it is; in our soil. That's why we developed an eco friendly alternative to slate; still natural looking, quality and contemporary, but sustainable.

How do we make our house signs

All ashortwalk house signs are handmade. For this, we start with our basic plaque made from recycled plastic plant pots. Now, one of our specialists goes to work engraving the plaque with the house name, number and/ or address. After this is done, several layers of special paint are sprayed on the plate, giving our signs a crisp and stylish look. Fixings and borders are added to specification and the entire house sign gets a good inspection. After the OK is given we send the sign on its way. We never use printing as a technique for making our signs, we only engrave and spray paint. This way we know our signs are stunning, stylist and highly durable. They withstand sun, heat and cold and will be the mark of your home or office for many years to come.
