Upright markers aren't the only option for a meaningful memorial. Slants, bevels, or flat granite markers as well as concrete plot markers and metal plot markers are all high-quality and available to be personalized to unique specifications. Upright monuments consist of the die and base. The die is the top part of the monument that sits on the base. The tops are usually serpentine, oval or straight, however other styles and custom shapes are also available at an additional cost. The base is the lower part of the monument and generally has a polished top, sawn bottom and rock sides.
Slant markers are designed to be noticed. The angle of the slant provides subtle easy viewing, making this marker a perfect showcase for your loved ones memorial. They may have one or two names and are generally 1 foot 2 inches high (or higher in increments of 2”) and 10” or 12” wide.
Bevel markers are set above the ground and are used to identify individual burial plots or together with a family monument. Companion bevel markers can be used for two burial plots, for husband and wife. For a traditional look, finish bevel markers with sandblast artwork. For a more personalized and modern look, have laser artwork added. They are generally 8” high and have an 1 ½” drop back to the front.
A grass or flush marker is a stone that sits flush with the ground. These markers are generally 24” x 12”, but may be larger or smaller.
Preserve the natural, tranquil quality of your cemetery property with flat granite cemetery markers that are flush with the ground and hidden from view by the grass at a distance. From flowers, religious symbols and emblems to flags, natural scenery, and portraits, Coldspring artisans can sandblast any desired pattern or artwork reflecting lifestyles of the memorialized.
