What is the difference between our work and the work most other companies produce? We have not compromised the engraving process by using "short cuts." The majority of monument companies, if indeed they do their own engraving, have cut corners in the process by artificially coloring the engraved areas. Bruce Bosman refers to this kind of work as "the monument equivalent of junk food."

Examples of Coloring That Has Worn Off
We still do things the old-fashioned way here. The process hasn't changed since we started in 1957. Simply put, we don't do anything on a memorial that we may have to apologize for later. We still feel that our work is our signature. It's how many we can do RIGHT, not how many memorials we can output in a given period of time.
We'll sit with a family and take the time to ask just what it will take to make the memorial just right for them. We don't rush the families for whom we work, and you don't have to purchase a memorial right away. Purchase it when you are ready, and not before. We wouldn't want to be pushed into this, and we don't believe that you would either. For your convenience, we can complete transactions by mail, fax, and even e-mail these days. Families are spread out all over the country and world today, but communication has become a lot easier.

We do NOT use artificial coloring on our etchings either, as many other companies do. And we do not recommend this, as artificial coloring will wear off...Guaranteed.
We have never had an etching wear off.
