Etchings on your memorial are another way for you to personalize your memorial. Etchings can be done by an image provided by you or you may choose from the many designs we have in our showroom. Etchings can be done both by laser or by hand.

The lettering style is also something which will add to you monument design choices. Many letter styles are available.

Adding lettering to an existing monument:
There are times when additional lettering or the addition of a date is necessary to an existing monument. Granite Swan Memorials is happy to help with this process. By going to the cemetery to see the existing memorial, we are able to match the lettering that is already there. This additional sandblasting is done right at the cemetery without the removal of the memorial.
