Images in Slate's Humble Beginnings
Images In Slate started its humble beginnings in 1996 as the idea of
two brothers, John and Chris Hurley of Newfoundland, Canada. From
their parents' two-car garage in North River, this family run
operation was busy hand crafting coasters from 500 million year old
slate found literally in their backyard.
Almost a decade later, Images In Slate has expanded its manufacturing
operations to include other products such as slate trivets, clocks,
welcome signs, stepping stones and architectural signage and plaques.
Images In Slate's customer-oriented team proudly provides slate
products and exceptional service to promotional product distributors,
retailers, signage dealers and builders throughout North America.
While it has outgrown the family garage, today Images In Slate still
prides itself on quality hand craftsmanship paying careful attention
to preserving the natural beauty and distinction of their 500 million
year old slate products.
