All of the plaques and memorials I make are made to order, customized and personalized to fit your needs and your preferences.
The hardwood plaques can be made in any reasonable size, and can be square, rectangular, oval or round. I typically use Cherry, Alder, Walnut, and Sapele, but I'm willing to entertain other species if they are compatible with laser engraving. The standard finish for these is clear satin.
The Live Edge / Tree Slice type plaques vary in size and shape ranging in height from approximately 10" to 16". These are Basswood slices and are each unique in their shape and markings. These are finished with a gloss polyurethane.
Other choices include laserable aluminum, acrylic overlay and Formica.
The aluminum is available in a variety of colors. I typically use black with gold engraving. The aluminum is engraved and then typically mounted on a piece of finished wood.
The acrylic overlays are engraved on the back side of the acrylic and mounted on a piece of finished wood. The engraving shows up best if it is mounted on a medium to darker wood. The Formica gives a granite or marble like appearance and is typically mounted in a frame.
Photo Frames can be a nice personalized option for any occasion, from the birth of a baby to the loss of a loved one, a photo in a frame with personal sentiments can help remember people and occasions in a special way.
