Financial Tombstones are often manufactured by cutting sheet acrylic to size, sanding is generally required, then polished by hand before the digital print is applied to either the front or back. Shapes can also be cut to size using a laser for intricate pieces and are to a maximum of 30mm in thickness, these are generally clear but, some colours are available. Depending on what is required for the tombstone the acrylic can be manufactured using the raw materials, which are mixed into a gel and poured into moulds. During this process items are also embedded into the gelled raw materials. The moulded items then go through a curing process with heat and in a high-pressure vessel, during this curing any bubbles are extracted. The acrylic is then cut to size, sanded and polished, if required digital print can also be applied to the surface.
Embedding is a very popular process, where an item/s are suspended within the acrylic, this is used to display objects. Acrylic is very versatile as it can be moulded into various sizes, shapes and colours dependant on designs. Tests on embedding items are carried out with a sample given to client for confirmation before processing the order. Other materials for example wood and metal can also be incorporated into the design alongside the acrylic tombstone.
Digital printing is very versatile and can be on the surface of the acrylic or embedded, this can be matched as required for example in corporate colours. Printing can be text only or full coverage from edge to edge. The embedded print can appear as though the text is floating or on card for example a financial certificate.
Acrylic prices are very versatile compared to other products for example: crystal, stone, wood, metal, glass etc. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the tombstone and size.
