New technology has brought many changes to the monument industry, including the introduction of laser etching. The process produces a similar result to hand etching, but allows more freedom in design. Mohawk Valley Monuments, LLC can take digital designs or images (as long as they are of good quality), then modify, add, or manipulate them to produce stunning results. Laser etching is not quite as deep as hand etching. Etchings are best done on dark granite (preferably black), and have more detail than traditional carvings.
We also offer hand etchings performed by an artisan. Both hand and laser etchings can have color added, which typically lasts about 10 years. Once the color has worn off, the original black and white image will be revealed. We do not recommend adding color to portrait hand/laser etchings.
