The Benefits of Working With Us
We’ve been designing, manufacturing, and placing custom headstones in the greater LA vicinity for nearly four decades and in that time, we have learned a lot about the requirements of specific cemeteries throughout the community. We speak with customers on a fairly consistent basis who tell us another headstone company created a marker that was ineligible for placement- and that the company didn’t have enough knowledge to warn them about the potential problem.
Stress-Free Flat Headstone Engraving
We understand this is a difficult time for your family, and our staff will do everything possible to alleviate the stress that comes from hiring a professional. We already know the requirements of local cemeteries, so we can make recommendations based on what each cemetery will allow. We highly advise making a phone call to the cemetery you’re working with to double check on the specifics of your loved one’s marker before we finalize the design.
At American Headstone Company, we understand the kind of results you’re looking for when you hire us- and we won’t disappoint you. We offer the following styles of engraving:
- Standard, which is typically what you see on granite headstones. Letters are expertly cut into the polished granite marker face and filled with black or white ink.
- Raised Polished, an excellent choice when looking for a distinguished look of raised letters with a cut-away background of a contrasting color.
- Deep Cut, offering an impactful appearance, having the background sandblasted away with the engraving inside.
While text styles are virtually unlimited, we have found a few text styles offer the best results: Roman with Calligraphy, Italics, Calligraphy, Chancery, and Classic Bold.
Affordable On-Site Flat Headstone Engraving
Adding words, dates, or additional information to existing headstones is made possible by our on-site engraving service. In the past, it was necessary to remove the headstone and bring it back to the engraving facility to make changes; however, that’s no longer necessary. We can create a stencil based on your ideas or drawings, have it approved by you, and complete the engraving or custom work on-location. We have a very high rate of success in matching existing fonts and letter spacing.
