Quality Stone Mason – Words Matter
The words you choose to mark your loved one’s passing with are of great importance, something that is attested to by the amount of thought that goes into choosing them. It is therefore fitting to choose the most authentic method to engrave them with. V-carving produces intricate, highly detailed results and can be used to create both complex and simple designs to the best effect.
Why choose a Stone Mason for memorials?
A skilled stone mason with an artist’s eye is able to judge letters and spacing in a way that a computer simply can’t. We believe that the uniqueness of a person’s life should be captured in the uniqueness of their memorial, something that is more achievable through skilful letter design and traditional stonemasonry techniques.
Memorials of the highest quality.
Sandblasting is a common method for memorial lettering that has become the norm due to its affordability. However, to achieve a high-end finish, V-carving is always recommended for the engraving of headstones and memorial plaques. Because of the techniques we use and the knowledge we have of our art, we are able to create bespoke, premium products at a highly competitive price.
By putting good design and expert craftsmanship at the heart of everything we do, we are able to create beautiful, personal memorials to suit the individual needs of our clients. By listening to your description of the deceased and your wishes for how you would like them to be remembered, we can advise you on the perfect design to suit your needs.
