TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO NARRATION:
The message that’s etched into this mausoleum has special meaning for the family that’s interred here. In this Chapter of The Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums, I’m going to show you how personalized etchings and engravings offer families an opportunity to memorialize the life and journey through life of an individual or family.
Engraving is the process of cutting lettering, symbols, images, and artwork into the granite using hammers and chisels or sandblasting techniques that erode away the unprotected sections of the surface, creating a high contrast between the polished stone and the unpolished sandblasted stone. Engraving is used for deeper cuts.
Etching makes shallower cuts and can create more detailed designs. Hand etchers use diamond tipped engraving tools to create intricate, detailed artwork and designs. Laser etching is used to recreate actual photographs and designs. A computerized laser burns away the stone’s surface.
These types of carvings are your opportunity to have your family’s legacy etched in stone – literally.
Add a beautiful epitaph or saying that speaks to the love that your family shares.
Or symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of your family.
Show your family members’ personal achievements and accomplishments. Their hobbies, and interests. Have a calming nature scene or a portrait etched in stone. A professional mausoleum company has the designers, facilities and mausoleum artists that can create beautiful etchings and engravings exactly the way you want.
