A wide range of lettering styles are used by our stonemasons, with the most commonly occurring styles illustrated in the image. We can advise the best type and finish for the lettering based on the stone type and will produce a to scale layout of the headstone design and text prior to lettering the memorial.
For new memorials our artists will create a “to scale” proof for you to approve prior to lettering the headstone. This will show any artwork you have requested and allow the family time to consider fonts, placement and style. We use sandblast, hand carved and machine carved letters depending on the material we are working with and will advise you of the best option.
If you require some help with selecting a fitting verse for inscription on your memorial, then please ask for a copy of our ‘Memorial Verses’ leaflet, which features just under 200 different verses for you to choose from.
