The best plaque ever made, contact us for pricing!
Our full colour, kiln fired porcelain plaques have been designed to complement our range of funerary products and satisfy the needs of those customers who are seeking a beautiful, long life, colourful alternative from traditional products.
A full colour, kiln fired porcelain plaque will not oxidize and deteriorate in the same way that a bronze plaque does and thereby maintains good looks for many years. The kiln firing process fuses the colour and glaze together to form a permanent structure that will last for hundreds of years.
Stainless Steel Border
Plaques are supplied with a marine grade stainless steel border and backing plate which frames their beauty and also provides edge protection. Plaques are supplied with concealed rear fixing. The overall thickness of a plaque is approximately 16mm.
Designing Your Plaque
As a customer you have the opportunity to personalize the design of your plaque using the exclusive design section of our website. The design area of the plaque is the area within the stainless steel border only.
Within this very simple design system, you start by selecting the preferred plaque shape and size. Then, if you wish, you can add a photo background from our extensive online library or upload a background photo of your own.
The next step would be to draft your personalised inscription with a choice of fonts and colours, and upload one or more photos of your own.
We have also made available an extensive library of artwork motifs and multi-colour motifs for you to choose from.
At any time during the design process you can click the check price button to determine the price of the design.
You may save and edit your design as often as you want, and email your saved designs to family and friends. Once you are completely happy with your design, you can order online.
From 100 x 150 mm (~4″ x 6″) to 308 x 430mm (~12″ x 17″)

Stainless Steel Plaque Stand
Traditionally, plaques have been installed by being fixed to a mounting block, rock, wall, concrete plinth or other solid object. Often these plaques are difficult to read.
Our single thickness stainless steel plaque stands have been designed to securely support any type of plaque from 100mm x 100mm to 600mm x 600mm at a comfortable, convenient viewing angle.
Various cemeteries have different requirements and limitations on the size of plaques that they allow to be installed on their property. There is no reason why a Forever Shining full colour, kiln fired porcelain plaque cannot be installed in any cemetery or crematorium. Before an order is placed, these issues should be discussed between our customer and the cemetery to ensure that the needs of all parties are satisfied.
