Memorial picture frames can be a memorable, evocative gift for someone who is going through major changes in life from the loss of a loved one, or they can be a simple way to offer a nice, unique gift -- especially for people who are hard to find gifts for. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a picture in an engraved frame is worth much more. Memorial picture frames can be used to celebrate happy times, like a wedding, but they can also offer comfort to those troubled by grief.
The first thing to consider is the size of the frame. Usually, photo dimensions vary between 4 X 6," 5 x 7” or 8 x 10," so you can expect to find frames where your picture will fit perfectly. In case the photo doesn’t have standard sizes, the best approach is to cut the photo or enlarge it digitally to match the frame.
You can choose from different vertical or horizontal layouts, combining graphics and text as you prefer.The placement of text or poems in the frame is also your call -- just be sure you give specific orientations for the engraving. The last step is choosing the font that looks best with the frame, as well as sending a picture. Don’t forget its possible to use only text, for example a personal name on top, and a significant date on the bottom of the frame.
A laser engraved picture frame made from wood is a stylish yet classical option for almost every kind of home décor. At Laser Engraved Memories, memorial picture frames are made of solid Alder wood, also used for furniture.
After the engraving, the frame will be completed with glass and folding easel back to allow vertical or horizontal display. If you prefer to fix it on a wall the mounts are also included. Check our galleries for more details on memorial engraving frames.
