How to Design a Flat Granite Headstone in Foreign Languages

Designing a Flat Granite Headstone in Foreign Languages

With there being so many different ethnicities here in California one thing we have learned is how to design a custom flat granite headstone with languages other than English. We always recommend to families to design the flat granite headstone with us so that it is personal and has more meaning to you and your family. Writing a message, the loved ones name and or dates in your native language is a great way to preserve your family’s culture. For more information on designing a flat granite headstone, contact American Headstones Company at (949) 228-7055 and speak with Josh Rapozo.

Designing your Headstone

flat-granite-headstoneWith our ability to design custom flat granite headstone markers we have come up with ways for families to either supply us with foreign languages or for them to come to our office and write them with us. It is always good to know what you want to say though before showing up to your appointment so that we can get the most out of the time we have together.

At American Headstones Company we have done; Farsi, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Armenian, Greek, Hebrew and Spanish to name just a few. We do however highly recommend still putting some English on the memorial or headstone. A common issue among all families regardless of which foreign language they are writing is the worry that the younger generations will not be able to read them. Many of the families have younger kids who can speak their native language but cannot read or write it. This is why we always recommend having English somewhere on the marker. Please contact American Headstones at (949) 228-7055 to set up an appointment to design your custom flat granite headstone, memorial or cameo.
