Headstone Materials & Colors
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments offers clients the choice of several headstone materials. The most common grave marker materials are bronze and granite. Granite headstones are a leading choice for a headstone because they have a traditional look, are durable, and come in various colors. Our headstone company offers customers the choice of over ten shades of granite.
When you work with Oaktree Engraving & Monuments, you can select the headstone material and color of your choice. Next, you will choose the specific headstone designs, engravings, and etchings.
Cemetery headstones come in many different design styles. The headstone shape you choose can help you quickly locate the gravesite of your loved one. You can choose a classic shape, or work with our custom gravestone service to create a custom-cut headstone if you want a specific, non-traditional shape.
Classic Headstone Designs
Headstones come in two classic designs. The first headstone design is an in-ground, rectangular stone that lays flat at the top of the grave. The second headstone design is an upright headstone. Two pieces of stone make the upright headstone. The first piece is the base piece, and the second is called the die.
You can choose a die shaped like a rectangle, square, oval, teardrop, slant, and more. Additionally, you can have the corners and edges of the headstone rounded off, squared off, or left rough.
