How to Choose a Headstone
Cemetery headstones come in a wide range of materials, colors, styles, and sizes. At Oaktree Engraving & Monuments, we listen to your needs so you get a custom headstone that honors your loved one.
Headstone Materials & Colors
Some local headstone companies have a limited number of headstone materials and colors for you to choose from. At Oaktree Engraving & Monuments, we offer granite headstones in over ten colors. We make custom grave markers in bronze, too.
Headstone Styles & Sizes
You can choose from an inground or upright custom headstone. Inground memorial headstones lay flat at the top of the gravesite. They are usually 24” by 12”; however, we can make them larger or smaller as needed.
Upright grave headstones come in many shapes and sizes. An upright headstone comes in two pieces – the base and the die. The die, or upright piece, can be cut in a standard shape. Choose from rectangle, square, teardrop, or oval. Our custom grave marker service in Coachella can also cut a variety of other shapes, like crosses or hearts.
We make monument headstones for multiple graves, family plots, or private memorials in addition to inground and upright headstones. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments has worked with local city departments to design and create public monuments, too.
Our Coachella headstone monument service helps you create a meaningful monument for your backyard or garden. You can choose from something decorative, like an angel statue, or something functional, like a bench.
What Goes On a Grave Marker
It can be hard to decide what to put on your loved ones’ headstone while you are grieving. As the leading local headstone company near you, we have a lot of experience helping customers decide what to put on their loved ones’ headstone.
A headstone provider will usually engrave standard information like the name, birth date, and date of death on the grave marker. Our headstone service allows you to personalize the headstone with different etchings, engravings, inscriptions, and decorations.
In addition to engravings, we are able to custom etch images on the face of the headstone. Here are some examples of work we have completed.
- Picture of the deceased with angel wings and halo
- A single picture of the deceased
- Picture of the deceased with a spouse or loved one
- Mountain or forest scenery
- Ocean, lake, or sea scenery
- Family home or meaningful place
- National flag or symbol
- Religious symbols
- Handprints or footprints
- Flowers or plants
Engravings & Inscriptions
Many people choose to have more than a standard inscription engraved on a headstone. You can have phrases or images put on the headstone. Here are a few examples of custom engravings and inscriptions we have engraved for our customers.
Words of Wisdom & Values
- Prayers or bible verses
- A message of hope, faith, or love
- Lyrics to a favorite song
- Favorite sayings or quotes
- Military Roles (branch, rank, veteran status, honors, etc.)
- Life Roles (mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grandmother, etc.)
- Career Roles (nurse, teacher, firefighter, preacher, etc.)
Hobbies & Interests

There are many ways to decorate or beautify a headstone. Plant holders and porcelain pictures are just a few items that can help beautify the gravesite and honor your loved one.
Vases & Potted Plant Holders
You can add a vase or potted plant holder to the base of the headstone. Vases hold live or artificial flowers. Potted plant holders keep larger plants in their place. If you plan to visit the gravesite and bring flowers or other plants it’s a good idea to add a vase or potted plant holder to the headstone.
You can have a porcelain picture of your loved one made to put on the face of the headstone. Porcelain pictures are copies of a picture printed on a ceramic tile with fade-resistant ink. The picture is attached to the face of the headstone with strong adhesive.
If you want to add a porcelain picture to the headstone of your loved one, we suggest that you choose a clear picture with high resolution. The picture can be of a single person or multiple people. You can choose a black and white picture or a color picture.
