Choosing a Memorial - An Amazing and
Modern Lasered Alternative
By Jon D E
Memorials are used to celebrate the life of a person and
often to inform or educate others to the character of
the deceased. They have evolved over the centuries in
step with their relative cultures, religions, faiths and
values. Due to obvious limitations most memorials were
bound to the usual uninspiring format of; name, date of
birth, and date of passing of the individual. However,
for those of us who wish to celebrate a loved one in a
more upbeat manner - what alternatives do we have?
Thankfully, due to the modern age in which we live there
is now a rather exciting alternative for us to embrace.
This new development is known as laser engraving - also
commonly referred to as photo laser etching.
In a nutshell, it allows us to showcase the most
memorable times of a loved one for the entire world to
see. Furthermore, rather than the traditional passport
photo-sized "stick-on" image that we have been limited
to for decades, this new technology allows for an
infinite amount of options.
Imagine full coverage of your loved one's headstone,
plaque, tombstone or urn in any vibrant selection of
photos, mottoes, or logos you so desire. Graduation
photos, birthdays, pastimes, childhood memories,
collages, hobbies - all can be displayed in high quality
digital resolution... in stone!
These alternatives are gaining in popularity and they do
stand out and really capture the attention of the viewer
as the essence of the dearly departed is communicated in
ways like never before. Of course you are not obliged to
adorn the stone with lots of imagery, as a traditional
format is just as impressive as the more imaginative
Clearly there has to be a downside, right? Surely this
option is priced at double or thrice the cost of a
conventional one? Actually, the answer is "No". They
typically cost no more than a conventional memorial and
even boast a greener reputation as the technology
replaces quite harsh and industrial methods.
So, for those of us who may be looking for an
alternative way to forever celebrate the life of a loved
one - a laser engraved memorial may be well worth
looking into. They capture the spirit of our departed in
ways like never before, places the customer (family and
friends) in full control of the design process - and do
it all at no extra costs.
