Memorial Monuments is very proud to offer both hand etched portraits and scenes and laser etched portraits and scenes. For our hand etchedings we commission local artist, Paul Smit , of Paul Smith studios. Hand etching on a monument allows us to provide the utmost in personalization to your memorial. Our laser etchings are completed in house. Having the ability to complete laser etchings in house not only allows us to control cost but also maintain the highest level of quality.
