Families can place two primary types of images on their loved one’s tombstones. The first type is a porcelain picture.
A porcelain picture is a plaque with a photograph printed onto a ceramic tile. The plaque adheres to the headstone or gravemarker with durable glue. The ink on the ceramic tile is fade resistant.
If you want to attach a plaque with a porcelain picture to your loved one’s headstone, select a clear picture with a good color balance. You can choose a black and white image or a color picture. Your headstone provider can help you with the ordering process.
The second type of photo is an etched photo. You can choose a portrait of your loved one or an illustration of something they loved. Common images for tombstones include a treasured animal or pet, a landscape design, or a biblical scene. Examples of things you can have etched onto a headstone include:
- Family home or farm

- Angel among the sun
- Forest or tree of life
- Flowers, or plants
