These shrines are made of HDPE, the same kind of Poly Wood that outdoor decking and furniture is made of. It is made of recycled plastics and can be recycled again if the need ever arises. The material is waterproof, colorfast, bug proof, durable, resistant to cracking and splitting, wont rot, and requires far less maintenance than real wood. They are assembled with stainless steel fasteners which wont rust or stain.
Each image plate is printed, cut, and assembled by hand in Steubenville, Ohio. They are printed directly on 1/8 inch thick Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), typically used in the signage industry. These plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading. The image plates are permanently adhered to the shrines.
The shrine holding the 4"x6" image is 9" wide by 11" tall. The 6"x9" is 10" wide by 15" tall, and the 8"x12" image is 13.5" wide by 19.5" tall. The shrines have a 2.5"-3.5" overhang to help protect the image. We also have just the aluminum image plates available on this website for sale if you wish to build your own style shrine!
They come with a keyhole slot in the back to be hung up. Or you can mount them to stakes and stick them in the ground. We sell a set of stakes that come with screws to make assembly easier!
