How the porcelain plaques are made
Term porcelain refers to a wide range of ceramic products that have been baked at high temperatures to achieve vitreous, or glassy, qualities such as translucence and low porosity. We use only the highest quality porcelain plaques imported from Italy or Japan. These porcelain or some people refer to them as ceramic plaques have very high density and will last outside for centuries in any climate.
After receiving your order, we will either scan a picture you provided via mail-in order, or will work on a digital photo you provided. We will email you a rendering for your approval. Upon your approval, we can print the photo using non-organic toners on a special decal paper. The decal gets transferred to a porcelain plaque of your choice.
Next it gets fired in a kiln at 1600 degrees fahrenheit. This insures that plaque colors and top flux coating are melted and fused to the surface of a plaque.
