bronze header

Bronze plaques, with the designs and lettering all cast as part of the plaque, are usually mounted on a piece of granite four inches thick with two or three inches of granite border around the plaque.

We do not recommend bronze for memorials except where required by the cemetery or in a more protected setting than the average cemetery. Bronze, while being the best metal for outdoor use, still oxidizes and is a fairly soft metal that is easily damaged by passing mowers and the trampling of shoes.
