Memorial Plaques Brisbane

The Finishing Touch for Stone Monuments

Memorial Plaques to Commemorate and Remember

Memorial plaques – Regardless of the type of monument you select to remember your loved one, it will likely be finished with some inscription, epitaph and/or plaque.

Commemorative or memorial plaques can be attached to a columbarium wall, statue, grave or headstone or incorporated into the monument with the inscription engraved directly into the stone.
Not all memorial plaques are used in cemeteries and graves.  A beautifully engraved plaque can decorate a garden, indicate the purpose of a public monument, name a building or even purely as a beautiful piece of art.

As monumental stonemasons, T. Wrafter & Sons specialise in crafting memorials and monuments using traditional techniques and natural stone.  

Combining premium stone products such as Australian granites, sandstones, limestones, and imported marble with precision etched inscriptions and artwork, our stonemasons will create a unique piece customised to bring your vision to life.

Even something as simple as a lawn plaque or a bronze plaque can become a piece of art if crafted with care, attention to detail and creative touches.

Stone Plaque Design Options

There are many considerations when designing bronze or stone memorial plaques.  As well as selecting the size and materials, there are many design elements, such as engraving of symbols, and motifs, emblems and logos.  You may even opt to include a porcelain photo or laser etched portrait.

One of the most important aspects of any monument is the words and phrases that are used to communicate the purpose and sentiment of the monument.We have put together this comprehensive guide to memorial plaque wording to help through the writing process. You can also learn all about raised natural inscriptions in this article.
