DESIGNS, PHOTOGRAPHS & LETTERING:
Engraved & Sandblasted – Most designs today are etched onto the memorial by sandblasting. They can then be left natural, which works well on darker memorials, or painted either in colour enamel paints, or silvered or gilded.
Photoblasted Designs – A relatively new technique, where instead of the design being deeply etched into the memorial, it is only lightly etched onto the surface. This way of blasting works best with designs that are very detailed and works best of black granite.
Handcarved Designs – On the softer traditional materials such as yorkstone, slate or nabresina, the design can be hand carved to give a more traditional appearance.
Tombletts Photos – We are suppliers of tombletts. These are small plaques that come in various shapes and sizes of black granite. The photo is etched onto the black granite and highlighted in white. It provides a very good representation of the original photo. The tomblett can be fixed to a headstone or tablet or can sit on the headstone base.
Ceramic Photos & Italian Ornaments – We are suppliers of ceramic photos which can be made in many shapes and sizes. The photograph supplied is sent or emailed to Italy where a photo ceramic is made from it. We are also suppliers of many Italian memorial products, such as bronze roses and crosses. We can also supply marble and kosmolux figurines, please enquire
Lettering – We can provide a range of lettering services for headstones and memorial items, including computer generated and sandblasted, machine cut & lead lettered, and traditionally hand carved.
