A granite overlay is 10mm thick, polished black granite with a photo of your choosing laser etched into the face of the granite. A granite overlay is fixed onto the face of your design.
The image is black and white and of almost photographic quality. The anticipated life expectancy of the laser etched image in polished black granite exceeds 200 years.
For New Memorials
The image is supplied by you and may be of a person, logo or other image that you may wish to have on your design. You can upload your image onto the granite overlay via the Forever Shining website.
Ensure that only good quality images (jpg or hard copy) are supplied to us together with any special instructions. e.g. “Remove background”. We cannot produce a good quality image on our product if we are supplied with a poor quality image to start with. Furthermore, the file size of the electronic image supplied is dependent on the physical size of the image required. If the finished image size is approximately 100mm x 100mm a file size in the range 500kb to 1mb is usually satisfactory. If the finished image size is more like 400mm x 400mm a file size in the range of 4mb to 5mb is usually required. If a suitably sized electronic image is not available for production purposes, please supply us with a good quality hard copy photo which we can scan into our system. The hard copy photo can be returned with the finished product.
Photos of copyright or trade mark images will require written permission from the owner of the copyright or trademark.
A granite overlay can be any shape of oval or rectangle, including a circle or square from 65mm diameter up to 400mm x 400mm square. You determine the shape and size of their granite overlay in the design section of the Forever Shining web site. You also choose the location and orientation of the granite overlay on your design.
