Ceramic photos vs engraved photos - Tennessee Memorials
A photo can convey so much more than words. A photo can show the best time in a person’s life. Or a photo can bring us back to a point or event that means something to friends and family. We believe that displaying photos of loved one’s memories can help us remember who they are to us. Also, how we want to remember them.
If the cemetery allows the addition of a photo to your memorial, a photo isn’t difficult to display on your stone. We have two methods that will create a lasting impression. Also, add more personalization to a memorial.
The first we want to cover – Engraved Photos. This is sand carving a photo consisting of many different tones and shades of black and white. It converts to a halftone image, in which an image breaks into small dots, much like that of a photo in a newspaper. The dots vary in size to represent the tonal areas of the artwork, giving the illusion of a grayscale image. We have perfected our process and have produced many beautiful photos of loved ones on granite. You can add all Engraved Photos for free on Imperial Black only – regardless of size or shape.
Our second method is kiln fired digital images or Ceramic Photos. This method allows for color, sepia, and/or black and white. We reproduce your photo on a ceramic metal-backed tile. Porcelain is available. Although, it is not as durable, as it allows for better colorization that does not show as well on Ceramic. Your original photo or scanned image is then reproduced exactly and then we permanently fire it. A few varieties to choose from are, for example, oval, square, and heart. They also come in a range of sizes. We cut your granite stone to the shape and depth of the ceramic. So it is inlaid flush with the surface to protect your investment and provide durability.
So, there you have it, two distinctive ways to display your precious memories of your loved ones. It does not matter if you choose Engraved photos or Ceramic kiln-fired photos. You will leave a lasting impression on the memory of your loved one that best showcases their story. What can we help you design today?
