Cemetery headstones come in a variety of stone and metal materials. Granite is the most widely used headstone material. You can get a bronze grave marker, too.
Granite headstones are a common choice because they are durable and can be custom cut to your exact size and shape specifications. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments offers customers granite headstones and bronze headstones.
Headstone companies offer different headstone color choices. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments offers over ten unique granite color choices. The color you choose can help you quickly identify a specific grave. You can choose from granite shades of red, blue, black, gray, and even green.
As your chosen headstone provider, we can provide you with pre-cut, standard sizes for cemetery headstones. Oaktree Engraving & Monuments also custom cuts headstone designs, so you get the exact size needed.
In-ground headstones come in three standard sizes. The most common size is a 24” by 12” stone; however, our custom gravestone service can cut different dimensions as needed.
Upright headstones vary in size depending on which shape you choose. It is common to order a monument 20” to 48” tall and 20” to 30” long.
The size of the headstone you need will depend on what you want your headstone company to engrave on the face of the headstone. The more you wish to have inscribed on the headstone, the more prominent headstone you will need.
Headstones come in a variety of shapes and styles. The two main types of custom headstones are in-ground headstones and upright headstones. In-ground custom headstones in Murrieta are usually rectangular and lie flat on the ground.
Upright memorial headstones consist of two pieces. The first piece is a flat-lying base, and the second piece is the die or vertical piece. Standard bases are rectangular, but the die comes in several shapes. Classic shapes include rectangular, squared, oval, and teardrop. Edges can be rounded, squared off, or left rocky.
Our custom grave marker service in Murrieta allows customers to order a custom-cut headstone in the shape of a cross, heart, obelisk, double grave monument, and more.
Our headstone service will help you decide what to put on the grave marker. Flat in-ground headstones usually include the deceased’s name, birth date, and death date. It’s possible to have your headstone provider custom engrave additional border designs and information on the small headstone.
We suggest engraving a meaningful epitaph at Oaktree Engraving & Monuments’ headstone service when you choose a larger-sized headstone. An epitaph includes words and phrases on how your family will remember the deceased.
Our grave marker service near you custom engraves each headstone, so it is personalized and unique. Here are some examples of our custom engravings:
Quotes & Sayings
- Bible verse or prayer
- Message of hope, faith, or love
- Favorite saying or famous quote
- Meaningful song lyric
- Life roles (father, son, mother, daughter, friend, etc.)
- Military roles (branch of service, honors, rank, etc.)
- Career roles (entrepreneur, actor, librarian, etc.)
Oaktree Engraving & Monuments can help you with headstone etchings, too. Headstone etchings are similar to engravings. Etchings aren’t cut as deep in the stone as an engraving, so that they can be very detailed. Here are some examples of landscape and image etchings for grave markers:
- Mountain or forest scene
- Ocean or lake landscape
- Religious images or symbols
- Handprints or footprints
- Portrait with or without added angel wings
- Icons of favorite things (interests, animals, etc.)
In addition to etchings and engravings, you can also add decorations to the base of the headstone. Vases, potted plant holders, and plaques are common additions.
Vases and plant holders let you have somewhere to keep flowers or plants when visiting the cemetery. Vases can hold live or artificial arrangements. Plant stands can hold potted or hanging plants.
A custom statue can sit at the base of the headstone. We can also make picture plaques that attach to the headstone’s face.
These decorations provide the gravesite with added beauty and offer comfort.
