Trade Buyers Information
Are you looking for unusual British made gifts for your outlet?
At Black Dog we design and make a unique range of decorative relief tiles in natural frost proof terracotta. Designs are based on carvings, tapestries and engravings from all periods. These original wall decorations make excellent presents and they sell well through a variety of outlets associated with cathedrals, museums and historical centres as well as galleries & gift shops. With a RRP of £13-£14, they make imaginative and affordable gifts.
Each tile is approximately 10cm across and is mounted on a specially designed presentation card. A printed label is added to the back which gives details about the design and includes a barcode.
We offer you (free) two types of purpose designed card display stand to suit a variety of spaces in your shop. We also have a version of the presentation card that can hang on whatever hanging system you may have. We are proud of our capacity to turn around orders quickly - nearly always within five working days.
We hope you enjoy browsing our site and we look forward to hearing from you.

Display Stand & Hanging Version
To show our plaques at their best, we have designed two excellent compact stands. These are made of environmentally friendly natural brown card and we despatch it to you ready assembled and free with your first order. Should you have a hanging system we can supply tiles on their presentation cards which include a jute cord.
Commission a Tile
Why not commission us to produce a special terracotta?
As a design-lead business we are always happy to discuss your ideas and can supply a rough sketch with no commitment on your part.
The origination fee starts at £400 and rises depending on the complexity of the design and whether you want the tile to remain exclusive to you. From design to finished product takes about 7 to 10 weeks.
There is a minimum first order of 50 units charged at our regular prices.
For unique presentations specially made pieces such as crests, coats of arms or logos can be mounted under glass in a contemporary waxed ash frame. We have a larger frame with a crest (shown right) which measures 34 cm by 25 cm. We also have a smaller frame as featured in the picture below which measures 18 cm by 14 cm.
The origination fee is the same as above and a minimum order of 20 units is required. Carriage is not included.
Schools, councils and other organisations can order any of our existing designs framed in this way. The cost per unit excludes carriage and there is no minimum number required.
We enjoy meeting everyone who visits our purpose built stand and it is the best place to see our full range of wall plaques. We can show you the latest designs as well as our card display stands and presentation pieces. We look forward to seeing you at one of the shows listed above.
We have new trade terms and conditions from the 1st January 2017. An eNewsletter was sent to all our trade customers on the 13th December and this will be followed by a trade brochure in early January.
