Color Porcelain Photo
American Headstone Company manufactures our own porcelain photographs. We control the process from photo scanning to firing the porcelain tiles. We offer photo enhancement, background removal, Oval, square, rectangle, Heart shapes and circular choices in both color and Black and white. For flat granite grave markers we engrave an area in order to recess the porcelain photo. The photo lies flush with the granite. Photos may also be attached to flat bronze memorials or vertical monuments with a glue down frame or photo ring. We offer porcelain photo rings in varied sizes.
The etched photo is engraved directly into the surface of the granite. To ensure the best contrast, the premium black granite needs to be used for this process. The cost is the same for any photo up to 8 x 10”. We will size your photo according to the quality of the photo and the space available on your memorial. A color or black and white photo may be used for this process. There are several designs available in the photo etched process.
