Designing a headstone or monument for yourself or your loved one is an important decision to make. While traditional headstones may be appealing, it may also be a great idea to stick with a design that makes the memorial unique. Here are eight designs and tips for making the most of your monument design choices.
1. Hat and Boots
Living in Texas and Oklahoma, many people are fond of the cowboy mentality. If your loved one enjoyed rodeos, country music, or genuinely worked a ranch, the hat and boots design is a great way to celebrate their life.
2. Mountain Scene
This is a design that works well with many families. This rings especially true if a loved one was a nature enthusiast. This design works on our single flat markers, standard headstones, and more.
3. Sunset with Flowers
Yet another popular, serene design is the sunset with flowers theme. Not only does this represent the beautiful legacy that a loved one leaves behind, but it also serves as a sign of peace and restfulness, each time the site is visited.
4. Praying Hands, Rose and Cross
Many people are religious, and a death in the family can really bring out the desire to display faith as a sign of comfort. This design on a granite monument is perfect for giving a family the comfort that it needs during a trying period in their lives.
5. Floral Designs
Either floral designs or the selection to add a vase accessory to your monument is an excellent choice when it comes to personalizing a headstone. Our specialty production capabilities will be able to help you create the floral design of your liking.
6. Heart-Shaped Monument
This is a popular upright monument for companion markers. If you know that your loved one has a spouse that will eventually be buried alongside them, this is a great way to memorialize their lifetime spent together.
7. Photograph Additions
One excellent way to personalize a headstone that makes it extremely unique is by adding a photograph of your loved one to the design. Your headstone manufacturer will be able to ensure that the selected picture of your loved one looks just right and lasts a long while through proper headstone maintenance. Your biggest job is to select the right picture that best represents them.
8. Laser Designs
If you are perusing our products and find that your design ideas are not present, your headstone provider may be able to help you out with laser art designs that meet your specific ideas.
