About Photo Plaques
Available in round, oval, rectangle, or heart-shaped, ceramic photo plaques from Perfect Memorials make a great addition to a headstone or memorial plaque. Made from 100% porcelain, these plaques are made from a color or black and white photo of your choice. The image is fired onto the ceramic at a very high temperature, which creates a brilliant, long-lasting result.
Picture plaques from Perfect Memorials include a limited lifetime warranty and are guaranteed not to fade, deteriorate, or break, as well as against vandalism. Because of the nature of the porcelain, the photo plaque is resistant to exposure to common outdoor elements, including rain, sunlight, frost, and temperature changes.
Depending on which shape of ceramic picture you choose, you may also have several sizes available. Heart-shaped plaques, for example, are available in 4" x 4" or 6" x 6", while round plaques have either a 3.5" or a 6" diameter. If you want a larger plaque, consider oval or rectangle; oval plaques come in 2" x 2.75" or 5" x 7", while rectangular sizes are 5" x 7" or 8" x 10". The images in oval and rectangular plaques can be placed vertically or horizontally, giving you four size options.
When choosing your plaque size, consider where you'll place the photo. If you're attaching it to a headstone or marker, make sure that you have enough space available. Many people leave aside a designated space when designing their burial marker so that the photo plaque can be attached at a later time. You'll also want to contact your cemetery to ensure that there are no regulations against displaying this type of plaque.
Attaching a Photo Plaque
Many people order photo plaques with the intention of attaching them to a headstone or burial marker. Your order will include a special adhesive and instructions for how to adhere the plaque to the marker. Of course, picture plaques can be installed in any location that you'd like, including on a wall or as part of an indoor memorial. If you don't want to attach the plaque to a headstone or wall, you may want to consider purchasing an easel or stand to hold it on display.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
