Bronze memorial plaques are a very popular and traditional way to commemorate a loved one. At Sunset, our outdoor memorial plaques (sometimes called gravestone plaques) are designed to stand the test of time.
Why Does Sunset Make Memorial Plaques out of Bronze?
- Bronze is an alloy that’s made out of copper and tin. It has a beautiful colour and looks very elegant. Bronze shapes easily into beautiful plaques and sculptures.
- Bronze memorial plaques are very strong and won’t get damaged by the weather. That’s why outdoor memorial plaques are used in cemeteries.
- Because of the strength and beauty of bronze, we use bronze plaques on many of our memorial products (e.g., engraved markers, memorial benches, columbaria).
What Choices Do I Have for a Memorial Plaque?
- Memorial plaques can be created in any size or shape and there are different finishes you can choose from.
- You can add any type of artwork, logo, emblem, or picture to a bronze plaque. Many people create custom memorial plaques with a picture of their loved one’s face or a favourite landscape scene.
- If you want to add contrast to a grave plaque, we can add a beautifully coloured or textured backdrop so it stands out more. You can also customize the border of any bronze plaque.
