Full Colour Anodised Aluminium Memorial Plaques

Full Colour Anodised Aluminium Memorials

Anodised aluminium is a very durable material and by using the latest technologies, the printshop fixes the colour print into this hard anodised layer. It is exceptionally durable. The gold finish is an excellent alternative to brass. It looks very smart but never requires polishing. Another huge advantage is that photos or full-colour artwork can be included. This technique reproduces the depth of colour beautifully, especially with the silver background.

These memorial plaques are supplied with fixings which include the coverheads. Backing boards are also available if required.

Long Lasting Encapsulated Tough Print Memorials

Tough Print Memorial Plaques

This is another technique to enable full-colour photos to be used on outdoor memorial plaques. Here the photo and words are digitally printed onto an aluminium plaque. The whole thing is then completely encapsulated and heat treated.

The result is a plaque with superb colour quality which is exceptionally durable. It can be immersed in water, it can withstand coastal situations, and it is even graffiti and scratch-resistant. It out-performs most other signage products and is comparable to vitreous enamel but costs less!

Available as just a photo or part of a memorial plaque.

Memorial Plaques with Full Colour Photos Inlaid

Memorial Plaques with Full Colour Inlays

Instead of having a full colour memorial plaque, we can inlay an anodised aluminium printed photo into an engraved corian, slate or wooden memorial.

This has the advantage of having a traditional style engraved memorial with a more contemporary digitally printed colour photo. The photo is inlaid so is flush with the plaques surface.

Weather Proof Porcelain Plaques

Porcelain Memorial Plaques

These vitreous porcelain plaques are intended for outdoor use. The ceramic pigment is fade resistant and the plaques are fired at 860C  to give a very durable as well as easy to clean surface. It should be noted though that colours on porcelain are somewhat muted.

The porcelain plaques unlike the aluminium  are slightly domed. They are usually fixed to the surface of the slate or granite memorial. They are often used on the oak crosses too. It is possible to inlay them partially which would incur an extra engraving charge.
