TEMECULA GRANITE CITY SEAL PROVIDEDED BY SUN CITY GRANITE HEADSTONES AND MEMORIALS

Designing your Headstone Memorial

We have hundreds of designs, and separate design elements, for you to select from. This allows families to create a fitting design by simply mixing and matching designs and emblems. However, keep in mind that we are a custom monument company and can do virtually anything you want when it comes to artwork. Please visit our photo gallery to see some of our custom, and traditional, memorials. In the end… we want you to tell your loved ones story..

As you consider your memorial design there are four basic decisions to keep in mind; layout, lettering, carving style and what artwork you want.

Layout

When selecting the layout or placement of lettering, and artwork, keep in mind that your memorial starts as a blank canvas… we suggest that the first thing your eyes should be drawn to is the name, then the dates, and finally the artwork and epitaphs.

Lettering And Engraving

There are two items to consider with lettering:

1.) Type of engraving

2.) Font

Our standard types of letter engraving are shown here:

Lettering fonts for headstones and grave markers

As a general rule we use a traditional roman font because it is the easiest to read.  That being said, we of course can do other fonts depending on their complexity, the style in which they are engraved, and the lettering size.

Engraving Styles

Deep Cut in Sanded Panel (an area where the    polish has been removed) are the easiest to read  and work well on all  light colors.

*Carved In Polished is Our Standard Engraving Works well on all colors

Raised Polished ( Is where the  polished is removed and the Lettering is left polished)

Extra Deep Engraving  (Is our standard engraving but just deeper)

Headstones epitaphs and verses

An Epitaph is a short text in commemoration of a deceased person that is engraved on a gravestone or plaque. Some Epitaphs are specified by the person before their departure, others are chosen by those closest to them. Most Memorial Verses are in remembrance and recognition of the persons family life and career, often with an expression of love & respect. Some of the most famous Epitaphs are from the Bible.
