Once you have confirmed the size and style of monument allowed by your cemetery, the process of creating a meaningful design typically includes four important elements: Shape & Finish, Granite Color, Personalization, and Inscription.

SHAPE & FINISH

Traditional uprights with a curved top, heart shapes, benches, and flat markers are examples of shape/style choices. An additional element you may want to consider is finish.  For example, with an upright marker, you could choose either polished or rock cut sides.

GRANITE COLOUR

This is an important consideration, as granite colour will serve as the backdrop for your lettering and artwork. Our granite is available in a large variety of colours, such as Jet Black and India Red, and is quarried in a range of locations, from Canada and USA, to Norway, Africa, India, and other regions around the globe.

PERSONALIZE

Personalizing your monument can come in the form of names and dates that will be included, and also by your choices of artwork, such as religious symbols, flowers, or anything meaningful to you and your loved one.  

INSCRIPTION

An inscription added to your monument, may simply be one line that captures an important role your loved one brought forth in life, for example "LOVING FATHER".  An example of a more elaborate inscription, could be lyrics of a favourite song, or a Bible verse.
