Spoof Royal Wedding Photographs On Plates
We can glaze photographs on plates, together with your choice of wording around the rim. The better the quality of the photograph, the better the plate. We can often improve an old photo, say of a wedding 50 years ago where the image has scratches and signs of wear, but obviously we are not able to 're-take' the photograph. That probably sounds obvious but some people expect miracles.

Last time there was a royal wedding we received many requests for spoof royal wedding designs with customers’ photographs glazed onto the plate. As we have another such occasion this year, we are re-introducing these designs.

We glaze photographs on plates – the plates are not printed (see below for the difference).
Our fine bone china plates measure 8 inches/21cm in diameter. A smart satin lined gift box is available as an optional extra.
We decorate a plate using a ceramic decal, rather like a transfer printed with ceramic glaze on a thin acetate backing; the decal is positioned on the plate and placed in the kiln when dry. At high temperatures the backing burns off leaving the glazes to decorate the china. The decoration is glazed onto the plate, the same process that is used to decorate your tableware at home and the result is permanent. Other websites will print a photograph on a plate using a process called sublimation. Glazed images are permanent, printed ones are not and the image will fade quite quickly.
Our costs are higher because of the artwork required so our prices reflect this. Our basic white bone china plate with any design and wording costs £17.00. If you want a coloured rim (blue, pink, or yellow) the cost rises to £19.50. The plates with the 2 gold or silver bands are £21.50. The optional gift box is £3.50. Postage for one plate is £3.95 to the UK by first class post, £6.00 to Europe, and £10.00 to the rest of the world.
Delivery: Your plate is made to order. Once the decoration has thoroughly dried the plate has to spend about 15 hours in the kiln. Your plate will be dispatched in 2-3 working days.

Wanted to thank you for the plate. I know you usually put photos of babies or wedding couples on plates, but printing the picture of my dog who passed away recently and who was such a good companio0n is a comfort to me. Muriel
