Hand and Laser Etching

Etching is a method used to transfer more detailed images onto granite.

Monument hand etching

The image can be a portrait of your loved one, a nature scene, or anything that will personalize your memorial of distinction. Our memorial designers first create a freehand drawing to scale which is transferred to the headstone. Our skilled memorial craftspeople then precision etch the image by hand directly into the polished surface. At Milano Monuments, we also have the most advanced, computer-controlled equipment that will laser etch any photograph onto the headstone and memorial. We can even add color to the etching.
