Celebrating the life of a loved one who has recently passed away starts by remembering their presence and finding ways to make such memories come to life. One of the most tasteful ways to personalize their headstones is through the use of memorial portraits.
Essentially, these are pictures of the loved one that depending on their quality can be sized and shaped to create a memorial stone or placed in a headstone. The photo itself is digitally enhanced to clear away any creases, fading, and unnecessary backgrounds and then placed on durable, beautiful ceramic material which provides a lifetime of memories.
The photo itself can be in color or it can be altered to be black and white or sepia toned. Once the photo itself is ready, the ceramic plaque is fired at 1280 degrees which hardens the material to provide excellent durability and prevent fading or scratching. This means that the memorial plaques can be placed outdoors on a headstone or memorial stone. Because of the protection provided, the photos themselves will not fade or dull. Plus, they are protected by a lifetime warranty in case they do not live up the high standards such plaques demand.
There are several advantages to choosing memorial portraits, starting with their reputation of being high quality and long-lasting. For many families who have lost someone close to them, the overall quality of the ceramic material means that they will see the portrait in like-new condition for a lifetime.
Personalized: You can choose from the many different photos that you have of your loved one, as long as they are of good quality. This means that you can select the one that best represents how you feel about them. From formal photos, such as engagement, marriage, or anniversaries to more relaxed photos of them at events or just around the house.
The photo itself will remove the background so that it becomes a portrait that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Versatile: Because the ceramic material can be shaped and altered, it is quite versatile in terms of how you want it to be used. This means that you can have it shaped to fit a headstone, become a memorial stone, or have it on your mantle or in your living room as a reminder of their impact on you. Because you can choose the size and shape, you can have memorial portraits the way you want them.
Inexpensive: Despite the process involved, the portrait itself is quite affordable for everyone who wants to preserve the memory of their loved one. The low, affordable price makes this available for you, but keep in mind that it will last a lifetime. This means that this purchase may be one of the best you ever make.
If you are looking for a way to preserve the memory of someone you loved, memorial portraits are an excellent way to keep them in your mind. In addition to the advantages they provide, the portraits will stand the test of time, keeping the memory of your loved one alive.
