Black Onyx marble is very rare and difficult to find as it contains no veining. Traditional marble contains white vertical lines referred to as veining. These lines are a result of phosphorus deposits that contaminate the marble with impurities causing discoloration of the marble and a general low grade to its engraving capability. Therefore the stone is not ideal for engraving. Although, many companies will use the lower grade marble or a granite. Don’t get me wrong you can get a decent engraving from other hard stones as granite and impure marble but you would never get the detail and depth required to really feel as if your pet is right there beside you. I guarantee that you will be amazed with the results because I put my heart and soul into every Pet Urn I help you design. I treat every one of my Memorial Pet Urns as if I’m designing them for my own pets.
With our marble all you see is a high gloss finish with impeccable detailed engraving. Personalized inscription on the marble can be etched in gold or silver tone inlay for a more brilliant contrast.
What type of Images are best for engraving?
When it comes to quality, the quality of the image greatly determines the quality of the engraving. Most images are acceptable for engraving, some are not. The ones that are not usually have certain characteristics about them such as very faded, very low detail or the subject has a shadow over it. Usually the higher the detail and the better the contrast the better the results. Some images just need a minor adjustment and we provide this service free with each order. We also include background removal upon request. If you have a favorite photo that doesn’t meet the ideal standards GOOD NEWS we can work with any photo because we understand how that image captures the soul of your dearly departed. Our special techniques allow us to recreate portions of the photo that might be cut off like a tip of an ear or a leg. Perhaps there is a reflection in your pet’s eyes that can be corrected also. We take pride in creating a final resting place that brings life to your memorial. One thing to keep in mind while designing your pet memorial keepsake is that it should represent a celebration of your pets life as well as marking its existence here on earth. Now with having said that let me give you a few more tips on the photo you will submit for engraving
- You need to send the original photo if possible. The photo should not be taken off of social media because the photo is compressed when transferred.
- Try to find a photo that has good lighting, a photo taken outside on a cloudy day can be perfect. Sometimes when a photo is taken outside on a sunny day it can wash the pet out or produce dramatic shadows.
- Pictures taken in low light can be grainy and this can’t be correctly fully.
- Pictures can not be texted they must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org also you will have a place to upload a photo on the order form
- Taking a photo of a photo is not ideal but if it is the only photo you have we will help you though the best process in transferring the photo to a digital format
When it comes to image size, the larger the image the better. With that said, its better to not resize the image before either uploading or emailing any image file. We accept almost any image file but we recommend JPG, JPEG, PSD, PNG, BMP, TIF, DOC and PSD file formats.
If you need help getting your photo/scan to us please don’t hesitate to contact us either by email or phone.
What is the best way to scan my Image in for engraving?
Although we accept almost all forms of image files, if your scanning your image we recommend scanning it at 300 DPI Ideally 600dpi would be best. Nevertheless, we understand most images places such as Walmart or CVS only offer 300dpi. If you do not have access to a scanner you can do one of the following methods to get us your image.

Second you can take your image or document to a (Copying Store) such as Kinko’s, they will usually scan the image in a place it on a CD or flash drive for you or E-Mail it to us at the time of scanning.

Please pay attention to make sure your email account is not asking you to resize the photo. You need to send the photo in its original size.
