We have attempted to create not only an easy to navigate gallery, but one that shows numerous options constituting a small portion of our latest work. Please keep in mind 90% of these photos were taken by our delivery staff and are not staged professional photos. Due to lighting and the highly refractive nature of polished granite, colors and contrast of lettering typically are much better than shown in these photos. This is especially true of the Jet Black memorials with etchings. Click on images below to see similar headstones.
Many of these photos were taken upon delivery to the cemetery and have not yet been installed flush with the ground. We recommend v-sunk lettering in a panel for maximum readability thoughout the years.
Bevel marker are generally preferred over flush where allowed because they do not overgrow with grass, the beveled top allows the marker to be read without standing right next to. This style often accompanies a large family monument.
Slant headstones can be set directly on the foundation or have a base added for extra height and visibibity. Many people select this style of because of large face for lettering and artwork as well as it being easier to read from a distance.
The number one preferred style of memorializaiton are used today for single & companion headstones and family monuments to be used with individual headstones.
Custom monuments while similar to traditional are typically non-standard shapes and or finishes.
All etchings are created in house at Patten by our artist. We do Laser etching for Photo reproduction and Hand Etching for custom design.
