Francesco Petrarca, known as Petrarch, was an Italian poet in the fourteenth century. Now known for his Petrarchan sonnets, his life was rattled when he became infatuated with a woman named Laura.
Married to another man, Laura barely knew Petrarch existed; but Petrarch was determined to immortalize Laura’s beauty and modesty in his poetry. His poems of Laura still exist today, proving that he indeed immortalized this woman whom modern society knows very little about.
Your article is Laura and the internet, accompanied with your plaque, is your Petrarch. The internet has a way of immortalizing today’s words, and your online article can last forever because of it.
It is possible that many years from now, there may even be “virtual archaeologists,” that will dig up our modern society in the form of the data in our computers. But that’s another story.
Any online article can become a plaque. Your very first article? Your first headline? Or maybe the article features the rising success of your business. When an article is published online, it can be turned into a physical plaque. A plaque is a great reminder of your success, and you can immortalize your digital success this way.

How the Plaques Immortalize Articles
Our plaques, handmade with care and precision to your specifications, ensure the immortalization of your article. But how is a plaque different from the internet in regards to immortalization? In a world where both the printed and digital word is crucial in information preservation, how do they differ? And as for the most important question: do they work together?
The answer to that last question is a passionate yes. The online version of the article can be linked to various websites and social media outlets, reaching all kinds of demographics. The physical version of the newspaper or magazine article reaches to those who buy or subscribe to the specific literature, but the plaque itself can reach anyone who walks into your company. If your successful restaurant hangs up a plaque with its local news feature, your customers who may not have access to the internet suddenly have access to your article.
The plaque is finished with a gloss that seals and protects your article, ensuring that if lasts lifetimes.
