Plaque Ordering Guide
The engraving process consists of processing a photograph, either digital or print that has been scanned, through a series of photographic editing computer programs and turning it into a high contrast black and white picture. The picture is then sent to the laser where it is engraved into marble using a laser beam 3 thousands of an inch in diameter. The process is very similar in action to an ink jet printer however instead of shooting out ink, the laser shoots out a beam that evaporates a tiny spot of the engraving surface.
When it comes to photo engraving, the quality of the image greatly determines the quality of the engraving. Most images will engrave with enough detail but if you want a higher quality Pengraving, obtaining a high-quality photo. You might see if the Bride and Groom can send you their wedding photo after the event as it is appropriate to give gifts up to a year after the wedding. For best results:
- The subject should be in sharp focus and the image should be at least 1mb in size. (Right click>properties to find the size 1mb = 1,000kb)
- If scanning, paper photos, they should be scanned at the highest resolution of the scanner (at least 250 dpi). Some places such as Office Depot charge very little for scanning photos.
- If it is a photo from Facebook, try to find the original photo. (Look in the Pictures folder on your computer). If the photo is from a cell phone, see if there is a HD (High Definition) version of it on the phone.
