Plaques can be used as tokens or appreciations as well as memorable signage to show the deceased are buried. Today, memorable plaques are widely used because they are cheaper alternative to tomb stones.

As compared to plaques, tombstones are widely used to mark burial grounds. They are carved stones made of marble or granite and are placed over the burial site. Some tombstones are carved into angels, family seals or customized emblems but bear the engravings of bible quotes or epitaphs that commemorate the departure.

Tombstones are engraved with the name of the person buried and his date of birth and death. Plaques are mounted on wooden bases that are firmly built in into the wooden frame mounted on the wall. Wooden boards are made of oak, teak or mahogany.

Memorial plaques are inexpensive yet they last for a long time. It is the best form of remembering your loved ones. The wood used to make these items is usually water proof and some come with ultraviolet ray coating. They can actually bear the same engravings that tombstones do.

The plaques are usually found in thickness of between 10mm to 15mm but you can also find plaques that are 20-30mm thick. The plaque can also be sized in dimensions you want. The prices may also vary depending on where you buy.

Bronze plaques are also very popular and used to welcome guests. With many people now looking to honour their loved ones with stylist looking items, memorial plaques have become very popular. You can actually get the plaque customized to your needs. This is a very important factor considering that you want it to be unique.
