Lasting Memories

Lasting Memories are unique; they combine the art of casting with the use of photography to reproduce finely-detailed photo images on cast bronze memorials.  Each Lasting Memories memorial is a one-of-a-kind, highly-detailed work of art.

Lasting Memories are highly personalised. You supply your favourite photographs and photo images, which are then cast in bronze forever – creating an eternal testimony of love and respect for your loved one.

Tips for Lasting Memories photos.

Choosing photos:

·        Choose original photos in colour or black and white (no photocopies).

·        Choose photos with good contrast.  Avoid washed-out photos.

·        Photos that are out of focus, faded or need to be retouched because of scratches, tears or stains etc, may result in additional charges.

·        Remove photos from mounting or frames.

·        If only a portion of a photo is to be used, that portion must be clearly specified – e.g.: is all the detail in the photo to be included? Which background images are essential?  What should or can be committed?


Scanning Photos:

·        If your scanner software offers you the option of Preview or a Pre Scan, choose this so you can crop unnecessary parts of the photo and thus reduce your file size.

·        Choose a resolution of 150 dpi-300 dpi for a standard-sized photo 90mm x 127mm.

·        Make sure the scanner bed is free of dust.  Clean with lint-free paper or cloth.

·        Photos may be either a horizontal or vertical format.

·        File formats accepted EPS, PSD, JPEG, TIFF

·        Your photos may be presented with your order by mail, email or CD.
