An engraved and personalised glass grave plaque
Page : 1
The funeral plaques engraved and presented below are made of real, transparent and anti-break-in glass (Safety glass).
We make it clear that we use real glass because some people use the words "polycarbonate glass" and other subtle terms to actually offer plastic.
Indeed, it is important to know that unlike plastics, PVC and resins, glass does not yellow and does not deform.
In addition, our motifs, portraits and texts are engraved in the material, so they are totally unalterable.
We do not do any laser marking or printing on our plates because we are concerned about creating works that last for a very long time.
The work of the portraits is manual and artistic, a photorealistic study is proposed before each portrait engraving.
Our glass funeral plaques are available in a "screwable" version, supplied drilled and with solid stainless steel spacers and stainless steel screws.
Another version is available "to lay", so it is supplied with a granite base of the same width as the glass so that the stability of the whole is perfect. The glass plaque and the base are fixed firmly to each other with very rigid and aesthetic fasteners.
Some low-end grave plaques on the market consist of a glass plate simply slipped into a rabbet and also with a small base. Ours are therefore very different and do not intend to have the same longevity.
The customization of our mourning plaques is very easy and visual. Our tool displays your price in real time so you can easily manage your budget.
We ship our plates worldwide, the delivery price is indicated in the creation tool by clicking on the "order" button.

Only real glass can resist outdoors.
There are many PMMA plates on the internet, plexi in "so-called glass": Be careful, it is important to be well informed about the poor quality of plastic plates.
Indeed, for the most part, they are acrylic glass objects called "plexiglass" or "PMMA". These products are simply printed in the vast majority of cases.
Of course, the production cost is extremely low, but so is the quality. These achievements do not stand the test of time at all.
At Renaud Gravure we use real glass, so they are perfectly resistant to external aggressions such as high heat or freezing. The glass does not deteriorate outdoors, however, the glass is not guaranteed against breakage due to impact.
In addition, these plates are engraved using a unique sandblasting technique that allows the creation of ultra-fine details that are better engraved than laser engraving.
If your monument is clear, the white engraving is not very visible.
Engraved glass is very beautiful and modern but you have to think of one thing:
The engraving being white and the glass transparent, if your monument is clear you will not have a good visibility of the portrait or texts.
A solution exists, choose engraved and gilded texts 24 carats. Concerning the portraits, there is no other possibility than to engrave them in white, so we do not recommend glass plates if your monument is clear.

ATTENTION, as qualified professionals: We only offer you resistant plates for outdoor use. So we do not make printed plastic sheets!

The photo was artistically worked by Jocelyn RENAUD, a graduate engraver artist and rated by Drouot Cotation to give a perfect rendering to the engraving. The engraving is hollowed out, so it is unalterable. Glass is real and anti-burglary glass.
Unlike PVC and other plastic funeral plates, our plates do not yellow, deform or fear frost or high temperatures.

These glass grave plaques are placed on a very heavy granite base which ensures great stability. To personalize these plaques, it is possible to have the photo of the deceased or an object or landscape he loved engraved on them.
It is also possible to choose patterns from the list provided by the configurator. The engravings obtained by sandblasting are naturally white but it is also possible to gild them.
For this purpose, Renaud Gravure uses real 24-carat (1000/1000th) gold leaf, the only one that is totally stainless. These gildings give a more luxurious effect but also make the engravings more visible depending on the colour of the monument on which the plaque will be placed.

A glass plate of high purity
Among all the possibilities at Renaud Gravure, glass plates are particularly suitable for decorating a granite monument.
These hand-engraved and fully custom-made plates look great on a dark background. The sandblasting engraving technique used on real glass offers a wide range of grey shades, from darkest to lightest to white.
The black granite base that supports the plate will perfectly match the dark monuments. To give a touch of prestige it is possible to affix a gilding made with pure gold, on all the engravings or on only a part to highlight it.
Renaud Gravure is the only French company to use 24-carat gold leaf, which guarantees good resistance over the years since pure gold is totally stainless, unlike alloys.
These glass items can also be ordered without a base, so that they can be fixed directly to the monument using solid stainless steel fasteners.
A work of art in glass engraving for a final tribute..
A professional engraver is above all an artist who uses his hands rather than a machine.
It is futile to want to compare a RENAUD Engraving plate with one of other laser-marked, silkscreened or imported from China... These products are so far apart that they are totally incomparable.

The engraved glass is rigidly fixed on a base by stainless chrome-plated brass fasteners. The base is made of 1st choice granite of the same width as the real glass plate, due to its weight and large size; it provides perfect stability of the whole, even during storms.
A dark monument is recommended because the engraving is light.
