Pretty nice Malcolm. What size are they? I am assuming Slate rather than Granite.

The photographs come out excellent.

Is the slate treated in any way like the sublimation ones used in a heat press
80W laser arrived - out of the crate and covered in tarp while I build the workshop around it

No treatment what so ever, You can if you wish apply clear linseed oil after you have engraved it to darken down the slate.

Don't say you need to get them made, Get them made. Your sales will increase.
