e 4484 USA: I manufacture gift products and would like to find a source of sandstone cut into rectangle or oval shapes. I have been in the gift manufacturing business for 15 years. Oct 18
Buyer's reply: I am in the designing stage right now and don’t have any definite answers for you but to give you an idea I will describe our current business. We sell slate plaques that we get raw slate by the 18-wheeler load; about 15 crates each month. We sell around 250,000 pieces per year. If we develop a new product on the sandstone I don’t anticipate the demand to be that large at first but it will certainly increase as the slate did. (I started 15 years ago with 100 pieces of slate).
Our most popular size is an oval that is approximately 10 inches wide and 7 inches high. I would like a quote on that size oval as well as an 8” x 8” square. Please quote me on quantity brakes.
Delivery would be to Baton Rouge Louisiana, phone 225-92.....
I prefer to buy locally, but will consider imported, I am currently importing some product and know the drill.
I don’t have a find-a-stone album but would like one.
Application would be to be used in a die-sublimation process
I would need samples to work with before I order a large quantity. 
I hope this has answered some of your questions, please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
