switch plates-travertine/stone

I am in search of switch plates to match my back splash (or close enough). I have travertine durango tiles. I found a few sites that may have items to match, however, I need a switch plate with 4 rockers. Any ideas of where to get this...I would truly appreciate. Home Depot actually had something online that I could use, except they only offered a 3 rocker, not 4.
Thanks!

Have you checked with Columbia Gorge?

Here is a link that might be useful: Stone Tile outlet covers

We used Columbia Gorge Stoneworks for outlet covers made out of our quartzite. We are very pleased with the results.They can do it out of your tiles if they are large enough. Do you have tiles large enough for the 4 gang?

Another option might be to use more compact switches. There are some types that put two switches in the space of one normal rocker and then you could use a two gang plate.

We used Columbia Gorge as well for our bathroom switchplates. They did a great job!

If you are up to making a sample board with your tile (easy, really - stick tiles to board with double sided tape, grout, let dry), you can then take the board into Staples or wherever and photocopy. (Then, you can chip the grout off and reuse your tiles).

You'll want to play with settings as you photo-copy, until you get a few which look really close in color to your tile.

Then... decouppage them on with modge-podge (sp?) or other glue and protect with a few coats.
