Memorializing a loved one is important and helps too with the mourning process. Monuments, headstones and grave markers are important because they will forever mark that sacred place we bring our loved ones to rest.

*Latin Cross: a standard flat cross most common in Roman Catholic cemeteries.

*Calvary Cross: a Latin Cross with a three tiered base, symbolic of the Trinity or faith, hope and charity (love)

*Celtic Cross: dates back to the 5th century Celtic cultures of England. Very elaborate in decoration with a circular design at the crossbar representing eternity.

*Orthodox Cross: very popular in the early 20th century.

Finish

Polish: a smooth surface which has a high gloss, mirror-like shine. Leaves the stone with a darker than natural color which provides excellent lettering and carving contrast. Letters do not show up well on a polished surface – they are placed inside a panel or area that has had the polish removed.

Steeled: the smooth surface which does not have the high gloss shine. Stone appears lighter.

Rock Pitched: rough surface made with hammer and chisel creating the sharp top and side edges.

Lettering Style A

Lettering techniques vary with different stone finishes and methods of carving.

Frosted Sunk Letter: a sandblasted letter which is deeply cut creating either a U-shaped cut.

CARVING

Sandblast Carving: the surface of the die is covered with a rubber stencil of the design. Cutouts are removed exposing the stone which is then blown using sand and pressure to incise both letters and design.

Hand Carving is done by hand using pneumatic tools and chisels and requires years of experience as an artist or stone sculptor.

Flat Carving

The design is outlined only, without shape or dimension.

Shaped Carving

Impact Etching is accomplished using a computerized Impact etching machine. Photos are scanned into the machine which then laser etches an exact duplicate into the polish.

Black granite provides the best contrast for etchings.
