You can select an image from our library of images or upload your own image. We convert your image into a line drawing which the artisan used for the hand engraving.
See examples below
We generally do not recommend using colour in the engraving process as the craftsmanship of the engraver is lost due to the soaking/bleeding of the colour into the finished engraving. See example here
In some images the application of colour can however enhance the final outcome. See examples here
If you want to add colour to your engraving please specify in the comments section of your order. Colouring of the engraving may incur additional charges. Contact us for details.
The Polishing Process
After engraving the polishing and Black lining is carried out
What Size Urn Do I Need?
The general guideline in the industry is that 1 lb. of weight prior to cremation equals 1 cubic inch of ashes. Thus, a person who weighed 185 lbs. prior to cremation would need an urn with a capacity of at least 185 cubic inches.
By selecting a larger urn than required you can place additional items inside the urn. Such items which may have had special meaning or significance to your loved one. And can be kept with them for future generations to discover, hold and enjoy.
