Upright headstones stand tall from the ground up and can be made out of various materials such as granite, brownstone, glass or marble. Most upright monuments today are crafted out of granite due to the natural strength and durability of the material.

Flat headstones are often referred to as ground-level headstones or grave markers. These headstones are flat and typically sit a couple inches off of the ground. Flat headstones are also commonly used as foot stone to a larger family monument.

There are many variations of slant-style grave markers. Cemeteries have specific rules and regulations about the sizes of slant that can be used. A slant monument is normally low to the ground, lifting only 1-2 feet high, with the polished face sloping at about a 45-degree angle. Slant memorials are always supported by a foundation, which raises the slant marker off the ground as to not hide the lettering. The inclined inscription surface of slanted headstones not only contributes to the prominence of the inscription, but also, unlike the flat or flush marker, it sheds the rainfall and nature keeping it clean.



Monument Engraving Services

We employ the area's finest engraving experts to ensure that your loved one's memorial matches the quality they deserve. Our team can handle letters that are knife-cut, frosted outlines, hand-tooled or hand-drawn, and many more styles. This is what distinguishes us from many other monument shops, and has helped keep us around since 1951.

Most headstones, monuments, and tombstones are engraved with sandblasting techniques, but Supreme Memorials is one of the few companies on the east coast that has the expertise to match the classic timeless hand-carved stones that has been used for thousands of years.

Once the team is on site, we carefully review our worksheets, the contract, and the cemetery permit to verify the information we have on your engraving request. We will then coat the area of the monument to be lettered with a filler that seals any small pits in the granite or marble. When the material from carving the letters is removed, these open areas are then sandblasted with silica sand until they are the same depth as the surrounding letters. If the work requires hand-carved lettering, the process is slightly different - we still protect your memorial and we still use a template, but the letters are cut using a hammer and a chisel.

"As a funeral director I know there are many companies that are just middlemen in the monument business, this is why I choose you to engrave my mother's memorial. It is always a pleasure to know the company you are using are the ones actually doing the work, no subcontractors no B.S. I always recommend my clients to use your services and we always receive great feedback but you never know how personal the service is until one uses it. Let it be known you will always receive a recommendation to all of my clients because of your personal touch and skilled carvers on staff."
