Custom Artwork on Headstones at American Headstones Company

Are you getting frustrated that the headstone or memorial that you want to create for your loved one cannot be made because the manufacturer does not know how to do their own drawings? Don’t worry you’re not alone in the search to create that perfect memorial for your lost loved one.

Here are American Headstones Company we have our very own headstone artist that will sit down with you and work with you to make that perfect custom memorial. With the many ways of sandblasting and laser etching headstones almost anything you image can be made and put on to customize your loved ones headstone. Do keep in mind that there are some best practices we do have to follow when engraving so some design modifications will be needed to ensure the finished headstone will look as good as it can. Also remember any headstone designs that require laser etching can only be done on black granite.

So you’re ready to start designing your custom memorial headstone, here is what you should do:

  1. First call and make an appointment with American Headstones Company to sit down with their headstone designer.
  2. Second take some time on your own before the appointment to come up with a theme for the headstone.
  3. Third, collect some black and white images from the internet for reference so our headstone designer can follow accurately what you would like on the headstone.

Please do understand that not all headstone designs can be finished quickly so our designer will email you a proof usually within 24 hours of your meeting if it is a complex headstone design. Also if you are a graphic designer please realize that due to the nature of sandblasting granite your design may need to be modified to ensure the final product on the headstone looks as good as possible.
