Etchings are most commonly done on black granites or those darker in color. Etchings can be done by hand or by laser. Hand etchings give the most impressive impact since the artist draws exactly what you want onto the memorial using a diamond tip Dremel engraver. Although being more costly, there is greater flexibility of what can be done with this method.
Laser etchings can duplicate specific photos or images onto the granite. We can merge pictures together and then transfer that image into the stone. This method has less flexibility but is more economical.
