A granite inlay is 10mm thick, polished black granite with a photo of your choosing laser etched into the face of the granite. The finished face of the granite inlay is approximately 4mm above the face of the stainless steel design.
The anticipated life expectancy of the laser etched image in polished black granite exceeds 200 years.

When designing your inlay whether for yourself or your loved one, we will need a high quality image from you. This image can be of anything you want to place on the inlay, if the image is copyrighted, please obtain permission to use the image. It should be black and white. As a guide if the finished product is 100mm x 100 mm the image file we receive should be somewhere between 500kb-1mb, if it is 400 x 400mm the image file should be 4-5mb, if submitted electronically via our website. Hard copies can also be used and can be returned. Please contact us directly if you would like to add text to your overlay. These additions will incur graphic charges based on complexity and labour. Your inlay can be circular, oval, square or rectangular ranging in size from 65mm diameter to 400 x 400 mm square.
