On this page you see samples of some Memorial Plaques that have been in place for years. Now, you can order from us and preserve the likeness of your departed loved one in vivid full color. This lasting, personalized tribute will be admired and cherished for generations to come.
You can order from us the same high quality plaques sold by retail monument dealers at a fraction of the cost. These Memorials can be used on any monument including granite, marble or bronze headstone, monument, mausoleum, crypt or urn.
These fine custom pieces are crafted in the USA on Italian Porcelain. As with fine china, they are kiln fire at temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit to permanently bond the image into the clear glaze of the plaque. After firing, the image will not scratch, bleed or fade! That’s why we proudly offer a lifetime guarantee against scratching, fading or weathering. Choose from a variety of sizes and shapes: Heart, Oval, Round, Square or Rectangular.
Your beautiful plaque will be delivered to you, ready to be affixed to your loved one’s memorial marker with a 3M adhesive tape on the back. You can easily do a self-installation or hire any monument company to do the installation for you. If ordering a bronze frame the installation becomes a little harder. See Self installation below.
You may order bronze frames separately. If ordered with a portrait plaque it will be assembled for you with waterproof adhesive. We have three kinds of bronze frames to fit the Oval plaque, plain, design, and covered frames. See Self Installation below.
This photo portrait transfer technology guarantees permanent resistance to frost and will not fade because of sunlight. Will remain beautiful forever!
The plaque will arrive with strong slender 3M adhesive backing for easy installation, holds up in any weather. Just clean mounting area, wipe with rubbing alcohol or solvent to remove any oily residue. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Peel the backing from the tape and, paying careful attention to placement and straightness, firmly attach the plaque to the memorial. Do NOT move or reposition once placed. It’s best to NOT install the plaque when temperatures are below freezing. The 3M adhesive is recommended for smooth surface application ONLY. If the surface is rough or has been sandblasted, you will need to use some epoxy or silicone adhesive. All our bronze frames with or without cover have two metal hubs fixed out on the back side. The frame is affixed to the monument by drilling two matching holes into the monument. Filling the holes with epoxy and stick the two frame hubs’ into the holes and hold in place for several minutes, until the adhesive thickens slightly. Full adhesion will take approximately 72 hours at best temperature 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21°C).
Type of Photo Needed
Our goal is to help you to get the best possible plaque of your loved one. The color on the plaque may not look the same as the original photograph, when the plaque is fired in the kilm, the color can change slightly. Submit clear, high resolution, original photographs or raw data from your digital camera, at 300 dpi or greater. Do NOT submit photocopies of photos or prints made from a laser or ink-jet printer.
