Melamine plates are a creative canvas for having children's artwork, personalised names or photos moulded onto them. For instance, a child's picture is a common image put onto a melamine plate as a gift for a parent, or grandparent, and a melamine plate personalised with a child's name is a perfect gift for a baby or small child. Getting a photo onto a melamine plate is as simple as just choosing the online source you would like to order from and submitting a photo and text to the plate maker to use.
