* FYI: BAS RELIEF

 



 
 
This finished image will be an artist's interpretation of your photograph. An image of the clay model is sent to you via email for your approval. When approved, the clay model is used for the cast bronze casting process. The bas relief is mechanically attached to the cast  plaque background. 



ETCHED PORTRAIT ON METAL





The etching process allows you to forever replicate your photograph.
This method utilizes a halftone dot pattern made from a 50-line screen. Halftone portraits resemble newspaper photographs, and have visible dot patterns. 



SOLID GRANITE PLAQUES



 
We laser engrave photographs and text into thick solid black granite plaques. Click on photo to redirect to our photo-engraving page.
