Stainless Steel Light Transmitting Plaque

Key Features

Our stainless steel light transmitting plaque has been designed to provide the longest lasting and most beautiful plaques available today. They will not fall apart, crack or disintegrate with land movement or the passage of time. Furthermore, they will keep their good looks and maintain a readable inscription for thousands of years.

The motifs and personalized inscriptions are laser-cut into two layers of steel that hold the coloured glass selected by our customer. When natural light passes through the glass-backed inscriptions and motifs it gives an effect similar to stained glass without the fragile nature of stained glass. This assembly also significantly enhances the vandal resistance.

Designing Your Plaque

As a customer you have the opportunity to personalise the design of your plaque using the exclusive design section of our website.

Within this very simple design system, you start by selecting the preferred border and size of your plaque and drafting your personalized inscription with a choice of colours and fonts.

You may upload your own image, which can be added to your design as an image inlay or image overlay with a choice of enduring materials.

We have also made available an extensive library of thousands of motifs for you to choose from. These images can be added to your design as stainless steel or coloured glass-backed motifs.

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.

Plaque Border

If you would like to add a border, there are three types of borders to choose from. Glass-backed border patterns are available with a flush border or a raised border. Or you could choose a plain raised border without pattern.

Cemetery Requirements

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 stainless steel plaque cannot be installed in any cemetery. Before an order is placed for one of our plaques these issues should be discussed between the customer and the cemetery to ensure that the needs of all parties are satisfied.

Trademarks and Copyrights

If there is a trademark or copyright associated with an image or logo that is required on a plaque, please ensure that written permission for us to reproduce the image or logo is provided by the owner of the trademark or copyright and that permission is supplied with the order. The order will not be processed without that permission.


A beautiful stainless steel light transmitting plaque is a permanent and lasting memorial to your loved one and a place for you and others to visit in the cemetery to reflect on and remember the life of the deceased.
