Many headstone manufacturers around the world create etchings for their customers. But, there are a couple different kinds of custom headstone etchings. You must be aware of which one you pick. Diamond etching and Laser etching are the 2 most common. Because laser etching is transferred directly from an image to the headstone, many times the image quality can be poor or skewed, leaving you with a warped image. Here at Monumental Art Works, we check and double check every image before it is is stippled on to the stone. We are also experts at image touch ups. So, if you want to use an older image that may have dust or scratches, no problem. The diamond etching technique is also much deeper and longer lasting than that of the laser etch. Diamond etching is the best, therefore, EVERY custom headstone etching created at Monumental Art Works is done this way.
