Slateplate™ Launches New Website

GARNER, N.C. -- Slateplate™, inspiring new ideas for serving and entertaining, has launched a new website for its popular hand-cut boards and trays. The revamped features easy ordering and customizable engraving options for special occasions like weddings, engagements, housewarming parties and birthdays as well as unique corporate gifts, particularly for real estate clients.

“We needed to enhance our online presence to keep up with orders from people who wanted to design their own one-of-kind gifts or hosting dinner parties, restaurateurs looking for a unique plating options to make their creations pop, and special events people searching for something stunningly beautiful and functional,” Lynn Yanyo, Slateplate owner said.

The growing company is also seeing interest from individuals and businesses in new market sectors, Yanyo said, such as realtors who are using Slateplate as a housewarming gift for new home buyers.

“Real estate agents are sending us photos of homes which we then digitally etch into a Slateplate along with the address, which they then leave in recently purchased homes for the new owners as a very special gift,” she explained.  “We also can engrave the backside of the Slateplate with the realtor information, as a consistent business card.  We find our customers tend to leave their Slateplates out on display.”

Wedding dates, company logos, and personalized messages are other custom engraving the company is doing lately from its production studio and demo facility in Garner, just outside of Raleigh. Located near the popular White Oak Crossing retail, dining, and entertainment center, the Slateplate facility houses offices, warehouse, shipping and receiving, digital engraving, and a “model home” showcase displaying multiple ideas for using Slateplate to bring the beauty of nature indoors for any occasion.

Hand-cut from the strongest, smooth natural slate, Slateplate is designed to make food pop while its deep, lustrous black surface is easy to write on with soapstone chalk to add a personalized twist to meal presentations. All edges are hand-ground to make sure they are easy to handle and safe, featuring clear acrylic feet for gentle, scratch-free presentations on any surface while providing an easy grip for lifting.

Unlike other slate-like serving trays that chip or crack, Slateplate is made to last and is the only slate product on the market that is commercial dishwasher-safe.
