Our Process

last date engraving for headstoneWhen the time comes to add the final date or add a photo or final inscription to your headstone one call does it all. We will visit your site and take a photo to match the fonts and sizes of lettering. We then give you a complete costing for the on-site engraving. Next we return to our shop and create the stencil for engraving. We schedule a visit and return to the cemetery for the actual engraving and paint.

Our state of the art engraving will closely resemble the original text, font and depth to match the original stone. Most families choose to have the entire stone re-painted at this time so all the letters look the same. This is an additional cost for the service.

Having only the new inscriptions painted will have a different color variations but will fade in time to match the original.

Selecting an Engraver

When selecting an engraver always make sure they own and operate their own equipment and will not source it out to a larger company. Large companies have very long lead times in getting your job done and will schedule to batch numerous jobs per visit. We at American believe that final closure should be done quickly and efficiently. American Headstones Company can be reached at (949) 228-7055 call us for any questions you might have.
