The inscriptions are sandblasted into the stone, so will be there for hundreds of years. You can either have the inscription done with silver that is painted in or Gold that is done with 23-caret gold leaf. The inscription does eventually fade or wear off, but can easily be restored.
Headstones vary widely in size, colour and shape. A small panel starts at around $400.00. A headstone may have 3 - 4 pieces, and depending on artwork, inscription, ceramic photos etc could be anywhere from around $1,500 to $6,000.00 plus. An average sized headstone, finished and installed at a cemetery ranges from $2,000.00 - $4,000.00.
Our prices include the inscription done in silver. There are no additional charges for the amount of lettering on your headstone. Gold lettering does cost extra.
