Etching design option

Etching is a highly detailed art form, similar to a hand-created pen and ink drawing. To create an etched memorial, an artist scratches the surface of the granite with a laser or diamond tip tool. A variety of intricate images can be achieved with this method. Etchings can be black and white or full color and come in a variety of styles. Etching is the perfect way to create a symbol that represents your loved one.

Create a beautiful memorial with etching

To sandblast a memorial, the craftsman uses a rubber stencil and forces sand against the surface of the stone. This cuts away at the granite while leaving the area covered by the stencil untouched. Names, date and intricate images can be created with sandblasting.
