The etching method utilizes a halftone dot pattern made from a 50-line screen. Halftone portraits resemble newspaper photographs and have visible dot patterns. The etched, recessed dots are filled with black paint to contrast with the brushed finish of the metal background. The best photographs for half-tone etched portraits have high contrast tones with bright white areas and minimal gray tones. Due to the amount of work involved, artwork is $24 if the order is cancelled after proof is received.
If you already know the size of plaque you want, simply select that size. If you haven't decided on a size, a general guideline is:
Count the number of letters and spaces and divide by 4. This will give you a typical plaque size in square inches. For example, 400 letters and spaces divided by 4 is 100 square inches. So a 10" x 10" plaque would work. We offer custom sizes as well.
Text: (See Memorial Text Suggestions or our other plaques for text ideas.)

Lettering Style: Fonts
Several font styles are available. See the Image Gallery for samples. The minimum letter size is 1/4" if the text is in ALL CAPS or 3/8" size if the text is in Upper and lower case. The larger the plaque, the larger the letters. The minimum size ensures that your plaque will be legible.
