Monuments & Mausoleums With Etched Scenes & Images

Browse Examples of Etched Scenes and Images Used in Mausoleum, Monument and Memorial Designs

A popular memorial option is to have a scene or image etched into a headstone or monument design. These custom features are popular with families in the Pittsburgh area, in part due to the expertise of our craftsman and creativity of our designers. 

In Chapter 9 of the 2023 Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums, titled "How Private Family Mausoleums Are Built And Designed [About Custom Granite Etchings And Engravings]", you'll learn how personalized etchings and engravings offer families an opportunity to memorialize the life and journey through life of an individual or family.

You'll learn about the engraving process of cutting lettering, symbols, images, and artwork into the granite to create deep impressions.

Etching makes shallower cuts and can create more detailed designs. Hand etching and laser etching are used for cutting granite.

Rome Monument of Pittsburgh specializes in designing cemetery memorials and grave markers that incorporate etched scenes and images.  Families choose to use etched scenes and images in the design of a tombstone because of the special meaning they have and convey. Hand and laser etching are two ways we add detailed images onto granite memorials.

Picture of the Process of Etching a Headstone

Hand etching captures the greatest details of our loved ones. A hand etched memorial allows for unlimited options to memorialize the life and journey through life of an individual. The memorial can depict the portrait, personal interest, religious images and life’s accomplishments.

The Etching Process:

1. The family provides us with a photo of their loved one.
2. A memorial is chosen. Hand etching is only possible on darker granites.
3. The provided photo is then hand-etched into the granite to create a lasting memory.
