Modern technology and expert headstone makers have enabled people to add high-quality photos on grave markers. Memorializing a loved one by personalizing a gravestone is one of the best ways to honor the deceased.
If you want to add a specific photo to a flat grave marker or gravestone, but don’t have the slightest idea on the rules and regulations of cemeteries and photo requirements, you have come to the right place.
At Dayton Headstones, we work tirelessly to create meaningful flat markers and gravestones to help you honor your loved ones. Here is a comprehensive guide on choosing the right photo for a headstone to help you get the best results.
Do Not Use Cropped Photos
Think About the Background
Even though using modern tools can help you remove the background from the image, it may not be the best way to deal with a photo because it may make it look like something was cut from the photo and it might get a choppy look.
Always Pick a High-Resolution Photo
Avoid using old photos that have been replicated many times because these do not have the necessary picture resolution to be replicated on the gravestone. The results are often poor when you use a low-quality photo.
If you need any kind of editing on the photo, you can always ask the gravestone maker to do it for you or get it edited from a professional. Do not do it yourself if you want the best picture results.
Humans are unique, yet very similar to each other. For instance, have you ever stopped to wonder about the unique stories, careers, interests, and qualities of a person’s life? It is amazing how different we are from each other when we think about these things.
The desire to be different from others inspires us a lot to pursue things in our way - from the car we drive to the clothes we wear and the stories we share on our social media.
When it comes to planning the end of life, everyone wants to honor their loved one in a unique and different way, this is why so many people choose to personalize a headstone.
In 2020, more and more families are looking for a way to personalize their loved one’s headstone in order to show their unique story of life. To help you understand what options are available, Dayton Headstones reveal 3 unique ways you can personalize a gravestone.
Go For Unique Shapes
Now you don’t have to be this extreme to create a headstone that completely stands apart from the rest of the graves because there are certain cemetery restrictions in place that will likely change your decision.
Choose Different Colors
For most people, granite color is the default choice. But if you want to stand out from others, there are numerous other color choices available. Just talk to a gravestone maker to find out what your choices are.
For example, you can go for flower vases, marble statues, memory medallion, and even QR codes for the modern era
Cemeteries have set rules that people have to follow and some of these rules prevent you from using certain shapes as well as colors and sizes of the headstone. If you are not sure about this, always get in touch with a gravestone maker to find out what options you can go with.
