We do not use paint.
Most reputable monument dealers do quality work and it is not our policy to criticize. In an effort to help families make informed decisions, the pictures shown here are examples of what should not be done. Our monuments are created by a 3 stage sand cutting process that creates a natural contrast or shadow in the lettering and designs that will remain legible for thousands of years. Beware manufacturing processes that simply cut the lettering into the polish and then paint them to create contrast. While this is a fast and inexpensive way to create a marker, the paint will not last, leaving the marker looking blank in the cemetery. Paint is for signs, not monuments.
