Ceramic Photos by Paradise Pictures
Paradise Pictures® introduced the first high fired color photo ceramic process to the memorial industry in 1991. Their process ensures the best reproduction of your photos through digital scanning, computer color adjustment, and proprietary high-resolution digital imaging. This unique process creates a ceramic memorial portrait that exceeds the requirements for durability in memorial applications. Ceramic colors fired at very high temperatures in our photo ceramic process endure the extremes of weather and environment. Colors will not fade and the medallion finish will not deteriorate, thus ensuring the permanence expected in the memorial industry.
Their process creates a finished product with an image as sharp as the original photograph with natural skin tones and detailed color quality. We begin with the family's photograph, scan it at a high resolution, digitally clean the photo as needed, and correct any color imbalances. Imaging is accomplished using our proprietary process and the medallion is fired at a temperature of up to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit. Thanks to the efficiencies of their unique equipment and digital technology, the process is typically completed in less than three weeks. This union of time-honored ancient enameling and high-resolution digital photography brings the finest quality portraits to the memorialization industry.
