What is granite engraving?

Granite engraving is a process carried out by professional stonemasons who use a laser to etch high-quality images and texts into granite. The designs are engraved into the outer layer of the rock, which gives them high durability and image resolution. Laser engraving is a revolutionary process, which has only become a common stonemason practice in recent years.

Types of etched granite designs

Stonemasons can completely customise the design of a granite engraving to how their client requires it. They can etch images and texts in black and white or full colour. The font, size and position of an engraving can all be modified and tailored to match a client's design. Popular etchings include poetry, quotes, symbols or photos of a loved one.
