Laser etching is a state of the art technology that combines the temperature of the sun and power of light to permanently engrave photographic quality images into stone or other materials.
WHAT TYPE OF IMAGES ARE BEST FOR ENGRAVING?
When possible please select photos that clearly show the person or object you would like engraved. The better the original photo the better your finished piece will be. If you are sending a digital image please use a 2 megapixel or better camera. The largest setting for JPG files should be used. For best results please do NOT send photos printed on a home printer. Email us the digital image instead.
A photo developed or printed at a store is fine.
If scanning a photo, please scan between 250 - 300 DPI. The quality of the engraving is tied directly to the quality of the image presented. Higher detail and better contrast produce better engravings. In terms of size, larger images work best. Please do not resize picture before emailing. File types we recommend are:
JPG, JPEG, TIFF, and BMP.
HOW DO I CLEAN STONE ITEMS?
We recommend using a dry soft cloth. Do not use soap or other cleaning detergents. We seal each marble & granite piece to help repel against water and oil.
