Celebrating our loved ones is an important task that we don’t take for granted. We want to capture the heart and soul of an individual. A personalized headstone with a lifelike etching is one of the ways we strive to do just that. Our incredibly skilled and talented artists can take a photograph and reflect the life and essence of the individual in it. Our portrait headstone etching designs are intricately detailed, lifelike works of art captured on the smooth stone surface and will last forever. Our artists can turn unhewn stone into an exact duplicate representation of your loved one.
Monuments can be personalized in any way you like but a popular alternative to a portrait is a landscape etching. The details our artists can extract from the stone look like nature itself. Perfect for the outdoorsman, nature lover — or just to reflect a serene, peaceful scene — you can choose to have your landscape scene etched with color or reflect the stone hue that is already present. We will meet with you to design the scene that represents your loved one the best. We are meticulous — right down to making the trees, animals and blades of grass look exactly like they came from the area that your departed loved so much.
A Personal Process from Our Family to Yours
We know how important it is to remember and honor your loved one’s unique life story. Our knowledgeable staff can help you select the perfect size, shape and granite color to personalize your memorial. With in-house expertise, including the best artists in the industry, we can help you remember through the most skillful and intricate design.
First, we listen and consult.
We learn about your loved one. Then we help you select a monument and walk you through our customization options to create a one-of-a-kind memorial that uniquely honors that person’s life.
Second, we show you our work.
We provide you with a computer-generated scale drawing of our custom-designed monument. This allows you to see the end result and make any necessary changes before we ever touch your stone.
Third, we handcraft each monument.
To ensure quality, we hand pick the stone to carve — which can be any size or shape — and our team of craftsmen and artists use various engraving techniques to create the careful details of your approved design.
Fourth, we personally install our work.
We finish the process by delivering and securely installing your custom-made monument on your loved one’s cemetery site. We guarantee that the quality of our work lasts forever.
