Frequent Questions

 

Q:  What is the difference between sandblasting and etching?


laser etching vs sandblastingA: -Sandblasted designs are deep cut simple line art with little detail.  The lines are usually dark in appearance. Not suitable for portraits or photos. This technique must be used on gray granite & other light colored granites and is also an option for darker granites.

-Laser Etched designs are not cut as deep into the surface as sandblasted designs. They have finer details and the image is created on the computer.  Portraits and line art both can be laser etched.

Q:  Do you do any other services other than headstones?

A: We can etch marble plates, crystal ornaments, pet markers and more. For more information please go to the OTHER PRODUCTS tab on the top right of this page.

Q: What colors of granite can a photo be etched on?

A: We only etch photos on India Black & Midnight Black.  If you would like a photo placed on another color, we would do an inlay.  An inlay is where a black granite or marble tile has the photo etched onto it.  We then cut a hole in the headstone and attach the plate with the photo.  Inlays start at $150.00 for a  5 x 7.  Prices may vary with size.

Q:  Why are your monuments priced lower than others?

A: Mike's Laser Etching is a wholesale cemetery memorial company.  We receive the finest granite directly from the source.  Since we order directly from the manufacturer, we are able to offer beautiful monuments that are very affordable.

Q:  I received the headstone, but the cemetery will not let me install it due to their regulations.  Can I return it and get a refund?

A:  We do not accept returns.  Please ensure the cemetery memorial is approved prior to placing an order with us.

Q:  Do you have a Warranty?

A:  Yes.  CLICK HERE to read the complete warranty.

Q:  Who lays the foundation and installs the headstone?

A:  You would need to contact the cemetery to see if they can recommend someone.  If you are located in MD, DE, PA, or NJ contact us to see if we can install the cemetery memorial for an additional charge. If you are not close enough for us to install headstone and the cemetery also can not assist you, you can try a cemetery memorial dealer in your area. Go to SuperPages.com or a similar online yellow pages and search Monument Dealers in your area.
