Bronze Plaques For Memorializations
Bronze plaques for memorials are an elegant, sophisticated way to honor your loved one. Bronze offers a timeless look with the metallic brown hue and shining brilliance of the metal. At Gaitz Memorials, we help you create custom bronze plaques for your loved one’s monument.
Our plaques are cast from high quality bronze, which is a durable, long-lasting metal, to help you create an enduring memorial to your loved one. Bronze plaques are often mounted on granite bases for additional stability and to create contrast to help the plaque stand out. Unlike granite markers, bronze plaques can have inscriptions embossed rather than etched into the surface. Embossed inscriptions won’t require re-etching services over time. However, etching and engraving on bronze plaques offers a different look. Our team is here to help you create the perfect, unique look for your loved one’s monument.
To create bronze plaques, we create a mold with the memorial layout and details and pour molten bronze into the mold and allow it to harden. Inscriptions and design elements can sit raised above the background surface. Generally, we polish these raised elements to create a lighter, shinier color to create contrast to make them easy to view. Once the plaque is cast and polished, we coat it with high quality clear coatings to help protect them from the elements and keep them bright and shiny for years to come.
Many choose bronze plaques for companion monuments because they are easy to remove for additional inscription. This means that it’s often easier and costs less to add details of a surviving spouse when they pass. In addition, bronze plaques are easily customizable at any time, as you can often attach removable plates or scrolls to the plaque later on.
Bronze plaques will require regular cleaning and maintenance to help prevent a patina from forming. Cleaning bronze plaques every three to six months and applying additional protective coating layers as needed will help prevent corrosion and wear. With cleaning and maintenance, bronze plaques can last forever as an enduring tribute to your loved one.
Jewish Or Hebrew Inscriptions For Grave Identifiers
When you choose a bronze plaque for your Jewish monument our team offers Hebrew translation and inscriptions for the plaque to help you show your loved one’s devotion to their faith. We offer Hebrew translations that are approved by the rabbi to ensure accuracy for your loved one’s monument, including names, dates, epitaphs, and other inscriptions. In addition, we also regularly add traditional Jewish symbols to bronze plaques, such as the Star of David, candlesticks, the menorah, the eternal flame, and more. We are here to help you create a beautiful, personalized memorial to suit your loved one.
As experts in Jewish memorials, we work with you to find options that best fit your needs to help you honor your loved one. We also make the process as easy as possible for you during this difficult time. We take care of sending the drawing to the rabbi for approval and deliver the monument to the cemetery for you for placement.
