Engraving is the most common method of putting text on a gravestone; other methods include bronze lettering and plates. Several types of text are available, with styles varying along with the overall appearance of the stone. In addition to names, we can also engrave professions, titles or a poem on the stone.
Engraved text is often gilded, but it can also be painted in different colours.
There are also several colour options for raised bronze lettering: choose from a bright bronze tone to a dark, antiqued shade, or silver chrome-plating. We can now also add names using stainless steel.
Bronze plates are usually used when many names need to fit into a limited amount of space on the gravestone. Bronze plates also allow for names to be added to old gravestones with no room for new engravings. There are several model and colour options for bronze plates.
