Frequently asked questions
1 – How much does it cost to have my monument engraved?
The price of engravings in cemeteries is calculated according to the number of characters to be engraved. A character is either a letter, a number, a hyphen, or a special character.
The price scale is as follows :
– 20 characters and less = $160.00 (minimum charge)
– More than 20 characters = $8 per character
A – Engrave the year of death only: 2020
Minimum charge = $160.00
B – Engrave the name and the years of birth and death :
MARY ELIZABETH SMITH
1900 – 2000
27 characters X $8 = $216
Taxes are extra.
2 – Will the engraving be the same as the other engravings already on the monument?
Yes. In most cases, our engravers are able to reproduce the same typography and the same letter dimensions as what already appears on the monument. There are cases, however, where exact reproduction is impossible. In particular, in the case of monuments that were designed and manufactured several years ago when the engraving techniques were not the same as they are today. We are thinking here of the handcrafted engravings of the time when they were made with cold chisel or lettering in lead letters which, for obvious health reasons, are no longer possible to reproduce today.
