Maintenance free Memorials


Corian is a modern material with a cold stone like finish. Stainless Steel is a brushed silver metal.


Corian is perfect for memorial plaques in that it is very durable, fade proof and virtually maintenance free. It comes in a variety of colours.

Stainless Steel plaques have a major advantage – the lettering can be smaller and the images and logos can also be far more detailed. Even good quality photos can be used.


Add a Stainless Steel plaque to a Corian backing and you have a lovely framed memorial perfect for your loved one that is maintenance free!

You can also add a stake so it can be freestanding!
