A headstone is placed at the top of a grave site to identify the person laid to rest at the gravesite. You can order a headstone with a minimalist look or work with Oaktree Engraving & Monuments’ custom headstone service in Crestline to create a more unique grave marker.
Our custom gravestone service can help you include personal details that describe the life of your loved one. Standard grave markers have the person’s name, date of birth, and date of passing engraved on the face of the marker. Custom grave markers can also display a person’s nickname, favorite saying, prayer, and so much more.
Work with our Crestline headstone monument service to create a fully custom headstone for your loved one. We can help you choose from a variety of headstone customizations and designs.
Our Crestline headstone service offers nearly unlimited customizations for unique headstone designs. The granite headstone you choose is available in many colors and shapes.
As a custom Crestline grave marker service, we help you honor your loved one by designing a one-of-a-kind grave marker. Another local headstone company near you may only offer a few color choices for your granite headstone or monument. We offer over ten different granite colors, ranging from shades of blue, black, gray, red, and green. Our headstone company also offers several bronze options to choose from.
Traditional cemetery headstones are long, upright stone slabs with a curved or arch top. There are also rectangular gravestone markers that lay flat on the ground. We can offer you more than standard grave headstone shapes or flat gravestone markers as a custom headstone provider. Other headstone shapes you should consider are:
- Slant Monument – a headstone with a slanted face that sits on a flat, rectangular base.
- Upright Monument – a stone called a die, that sits upright on a flat, rectangular base. The die can be rectangular, square, or oval. Edge finishings can be rounded, squared off, or even left unfinished with a rocky look.
- Cross – an upright headstone in the form of a cross
Part of our custom headstone service is to work with you on a personal and customized engraving for the face of the headstone of your choice. Our compassionate customer service representative will help you decide what to put on the grave marker. We can also provide you with a list of fonts to make the headstone look the way you want.
You may consider engraving words or phrases like:
- Favorite quotes or bible verses
- Etched icons of a favorite interest
- Handprints or footprints
- Military rank or veteran status
There are two types of pictures that families can place on their loved one’s tombstones. The first type is a porcelain picture.
A porcelain picture is a plaque made by printing a picture onto a ceramic tile. The plaque attaches to the gravemarker with a durable, long-lasting adhesive. The ink used on the ceramic tile is fade resistant.
We suggest choosing a clear picture with a good color balance. Selecting a black and white image or a color picture is possible. Your headstone provider can assist you with the ordering process.
The second type of picture is an etched picture. You can choose a portrait of your loved one or a photograph of something they loved. Commonly etched pictures include a landscape design, religious scene, portrait, or even a beloved family pet. Examples of pictures you can have etched onto the headstone include:
- Family farm or homestead
- Angel among the sun and clouds
- Lighthouse and ocean
- Forest or tree of life
- Birds or feathers
- Flowers, wreaths, or plants
You can order decorative elements from your headstone company. Items like flower vases, plant holders, small statues, and even solar-powered lights can help you make a gravesite one-of-a-kind.
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments provides grave marker service near you. We can also design and create a monument to honor your loved one. You can choose from a memorial bench, pillar, cremation marker, statue, and so much more.
