Photos on Memorial Plaques
Can be used outdoors

Photo Memorials.

It has become increasing popular in the last few years to include a photo on a memorial plaque.  Seeing the person on the plaque certainly does make the memorial plaque extra special.  On this page we have listed out the various options that are available to you.  All are designed to be used outdoors or indoors. The full colour options are resistant to fading, but you can extend their lifespan even more, by placing out of the strongest sunlight. The etched memorials do not fade so could be the best option in certain situations.  If you need so help choosing your photo memorial don't hesitate to call us.

Etched Photo Memorials

These are a superb quality photo memorial whereby the photo is etched into the brass or brushed stainless steel. It is not effected by UV light so will not fade. The lettering is also chemically etched and can be as small 5mm if required. Example Price:- a 150mm x 100mm brushed stainless steel photo memorial is £113.

Anoprinted Aluminium Memorial Plaques

Using this process the photograph and wording are locked inside the hard anodised layer. This makes the plaque very tough and durable, completely waterproof, as well as being resistant to fading. The background colours for the plaque are silver or gold. These plaques can be used either as a complete memorial plaque or inserted into a wooden, corian or slate memorial. Example Price:- a 150mm x 100mm anodised aluminium plaque will be £114. More Information.

Full Colour Tough Print Photo Plaques

These plaques are ideal for full colour memorials with the colours being rich and vibrant. They also have excellent long term resistance to fading as well as being moisture resistant, abrasion and scratch resistant, acid resistant and they can even be used in very harsh weather conditions including by the sea. They are made with 3mm aluminium and fully encapsulated using a heat process which gives a high quality graffiti resistant finish.
Text can be included on the plaque or they can simply be a photo which is to be mounted outside. Example Price:- a 150mm x 100mm tough print photo plaque will be £62.50
