A headstone is a marker 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 Adelanto to create a more personalized grave marker.
Our custom gravestone service can help you include additional details of your loved one. Standard grave markers include a person’s name, date of birth, and date of passing. Custom grave markers can also display a person’s nickname, favorite quote, bible verse, and so much more.
Work with our Adelanto headstone monument service to create a fully custom headstone. We can help you choose from a variety of headstone designs and customizations.
Our Adelanto headstone service offers several customizations for headstone designs. The granite headstone you choose is available in various shapes and colors.
Traditional cemetery headstones are long, vertical stone slabs with a curved top. There are also gravestone markers that lay flat on the ground. We can offer you more than the conventional grave headstone arch shape or flat gravestone marker as a custom headstone provider. Other headstone shapes you can choose from include:
- Upright Monument – a rectangular stone called a die, sits on a flat, rectangular base. Top cuts, the shape at the top of the monument, can be rounded, squared off, or even left unfinished.
- Slant Monument – a headstone with a slanted face that sits on a flat, rectangular base.
- Cross – an upright headstone in the form of a cross
- Heart – a flat grave marker in the form of a heart
As a custom Adelanto grave marker service, we aim to help you honor your loved one. A local headstone company near you may only offer a few color choices for your headstone, gravestone, or monument. We provide over ten different granite colors, ranging from black to gray to red or blue. Bronze options are also available through our headstone company.
Part of our custom headstone service is to work with you on a fully customized engraving for the front of the headstone or gravemarker of your choice. Our compassionate customer service representative will help you decide what to have engraved. They can also provide you with a complete list of fonts to make your loved one’s headstone or gravemarker unique and personalized.
Things you should consider engraving on your loved one’s tombstone include:
- Favorite quotes, sayings, or bible verses
- Etched icons or images of a favorite hobby
- Handprints or footprints
- Military service rank or veteran status
There are two main types of photos that families can place on their loved one’s tombstones. The first type of photo is a porcelain picture.
A porcelain picture is a plaque made by printing a photograph onto a ceramic tile. The plaque attaches to the headstone or gravemarker with a durable adhesive. The ink used to print the picture onto the ceramic tile is fade resistant.
If you want to attach a plaque with a porcelain picture to your loved one’s tombstone, choose a clear picture with 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 photo is an etched picture. You can choose a portrait of your loved one or a photograph of something loved. Commonly etched images for tombstones include a beloved animal or pet, landscape design, or heavenly scene. Examples of pictures that you can have etched onto a headstone include:
- Family farm or homestead
- Lighthouse and ocean
- Angel among the sun and clouds
- Forest or tree of life
- Flowers, wreaths, or plants
- Birds or feathers
Headstone companies also offer decorative elements that you can add to a headstone or grave marker. You can add items like flower vases, plant holders, small statues, and even solar-powered lights to make a gravesite truly one-of-a-kind.
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments grave marker service near you can also design and create a monument to honor your loved one. You can choose from a memorial bench, pillar, cremation marker, statue, and more.
You can choose to place a monument in the cemetery at the gravesite of your loved one, or you can choose to place the memorial elsewhere. A park, your church garden, or even your backyard are just a few places where you can set up a loving monument as a tribute to your loved one’s life.
