Headstone inscription lettering

Completed by a master monumental masons, our lettering techniques include:

Incised or raised lettering

This technique achieves a natural contrast of polished and sandblasted stone to make the inscription easy to read without the use of fillers (gilding, paint or lead).

Hand-cut V-sunk lettering

This traditional method requires a skilled stonemason to carve each character into the stone by hand. The characters can then be filled with a lead, gilding or coloured paint to make them easier to read.


Sandblasting can be used for large memorials with a lot of lettering or characters or artwork on smaller pieces where the lettering and art are left polished and the background is given a rougher texture. This style works well on dark stone.
