Important information

TECHNICAL DESIGN AND MATERIAL COMPOSITION

Our epitaph product’s frame is made of stainless steel or iron and it is also zinced. A high-pressure laminate is then bolted to the frame using stainless bolts. This laminate is resistant against all weather conditions, including wetness. A hardened, safety Planibel type glass is then glued to this laminate. Depending on the specific type of the epitaph product, we use different glass thickness: 6, 8, 10, 12 millimeters. The glass is firm, walkable, resistant to breaking, damaging or scratching.

DIMENSIONS AND SHAPES

We manufacture our epitaph products according to the dimensions requested by our customer. We can also create atypical shapes according to the customer’s suggestions. It is necessary to consult with one of our technical experts before a project can be realized, to ensure it is within our technical capabilities.

A gravestone plaque is not an essential part of a standard grave.

GRAPHICAL DESIGN AND GLASS PRINTING

We offer countless themes for our epitaph products. You may choose from many different colors, motives, writing styles and favorite verses. It is possible to attach a picture of the deceased person or a picture of their favorite place (a cabin, a sea, mountains etc.) to the gravestone plaque. Additional pictures can also be chosen from our photobank at www.shutterstock.com.

GLASS PRINTING
Glass printing is done using a digital printing machine, which applies inorganic ceramic ink to the glass with extreme precision, which then becomes an inseparable part of the glass after the glass is harden at 700° Celsius. This printing method allows a resolution of up to 800 DPI, which can be modified further. The resulting product is a highly resistant glass plaque with a printed text which is equally resistant to UV light, scratching and weather conditions.

We offer a lifetime warranty for the quality and persistence of the printed colors.

GRAPHICAL MATERIALS
Any pictures provided by the customer must have a resolution of at least 200 DPI = Dot per inch. The standard used to measure screen and printer resolution, expressed as the number of dots that a device can display or print per linear inch. The greater the number of dots per inch, the better the resolution.DPI. This is an important factor, which can affect the quality and sharpness of the motive when enlarged. As a rule of thumb – the higher the picture resolution, the higher the resulting quality.

The graphical design is FREE OF CHARGE (2 design motives included in the price, with any additional for 1000 CZK per motive, excluding VAT) or we can use the customer’s own design if it follows the requested specifications.

SAMPLING METHOD
Our customer typically receives a visualization (our proposition of the print design), which can be viewed using the customer’s own device, such as a PC monitor, a tablet or a smartphone. Because each device displays colors in a slightly different way, it is possible that the actual printed color of the end-product may vary slightly from the sample viewed on a computer. The final color of the product can also be influenced by the manufacturing process, the color of the glass or by the lighting of the surrounding area.

If our customer requires a precise sample of the color and printing quality using the same type of glass as the one requested for the entire order, we can manufacture one up to the size of an A4 paper. Creating such a sample takes approximately 3–4 weeks. The manufacturing fee for such sample is 605 CZK including VAT.

If the customer requests a sample purely for the purpose of seeing the quality of the printed text (text resolution), it is possible to create a sample using a standard 6mm thick glass. In that case the sample can be delivered within 2 weeks. The price of this sample is 605 CZK including VAT.

FINISHED SAMPLES
In case you want to speed up the process of creating a design for your epitaph product, we offer a selection of predetermined graphical designs to choose from, where we only need to change parts of the text containing personal information.

You may choose from the following selection:

FROM AN OLD GRANITE GRAVE TO A NEW GLASS GRAVE

It is possible to attach a special made safety glass to an old granite grave by either gluing it onto it or by attaching it using fixed lugs or a U profile. This way we can create a new glass grave based on your requirements. If you are interested, please consult one of our technicians.
