Custom Engraving & Inscription Services

Sunset Memorial & Stone is not only serving the community with monuments and memorials, but also with our decorative address rocks & signs, awards and dedication bricks.

Make a statement in your home or place of business with personalized, granite decorative pieces like beautifully sandblasted glass, tiles or rocks. Each brings a unique and classic or contemporary look to any decor.

Want to recognize an achievement or make a lasting tribute? . . . Present them with an award. A granite plaque is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation to those who make a difference.

Want to stand out in your community? Address rocks add presence and a sense of style and prestige to your landscaping. They are more easily seen from a distance and require little or no maintenance. You have the option of bringing in your own rock to engrave or choosing one from our yard.

Please note that some materials are more suitable than others for carving; Sunset will first determine carving feasibility and inform you prior to starting any work.

Decorative Pieces

Sunset is also pleased to provide engraving services on glass, wood, rocks, granite tiles and many other surfaces to give your space that extra touch of class. For personal projects, for example, we may sandblast graphic images and text on smaller rocks that could be set on a mantelpiece, table, even a front lawn or back garden. Another popular idea is to laser portraits of a pet or family member on a black granite tile, which may be framed and wall-mounted. There are countless combinations and ideas that can be expressed with our sandblasting and laser-engraving techniques. To achieve more of a photographic quality, having gradients or soft highlights and shadow effects, laser etching works best. Businesses often request logos to be sandblasted on granite tables and decorative glass panels. We also create custom signs in granite for corporations in both indoor and outdoor settings. Larger projects including water fountains, cenotaphs and murals may be something we can help you with, whether you supply us with the material or need us to order in that perfect piece for you. Unleash your creative side, and allow our team to help you with any original project you may have by contacting one of our sales representatives anytime.

Address Rocks

Address Rocks & Personal Engraved Signs

Granite, the material of choice for centuries, is ideal for exterior signs. Second only to diamonds in its density, granite is an extremely hard material and a favourite natural stone due to its almost indestructible qualities.

Why not customize your outdoor living space with a one-of-a-kind address rock or sign. Many types of stones and tiles can be used to create garden stones, welcome stones, engraved house numbers and stone house address markers.

Your custom-carved address rock will enhance the beauty of your business or your home and is a perfect addition to your landscaping project. Your unique address rock makes a statement about your home, business or organization – solid, lasting, elegant. The permanence and versatility of granite gives many possibilities for the shape and inscription that best suits the home or organization and the site.

Granite can be used with many other materials. The beauty of granite is in the variety of designs that are possible. Custom designs and lettering inscribed into the stone are permanent. The combination of skilled staff and cutting edge technology assures the best results, guaranteed.

Businesses often request logos to be sandblasted on granite tables and decorative glass panels. We also create custom signs in granite for corporations in both indoor and outdoor settings. Larger projects including water fountains, cenotaphs and murals may be something we can help you with, whether you supply us with the material or need us to order in that perfect piece for you.

Dedication Bricks

Dedication bricks make an enduring tribute and offer a wonderful way to memorialize someone you cherish, or celebrate and commemorate a special occasion in your life.

Bricks visibly honour loved ones, both past and present, and serve as a gentle reminder of how often they are thought about and how much they are loved.

Bricks come in almost any shape, size and kind imaginable. We offer granite bricks as well as other varieties. These bricks can be engraved with a variety of messages: your own name or that of a loved one, either living or deceased; the date of a birth, graduation, wedding or anniversary, even a short but special message to the community.

Though limited in the amount of information that can be inscribed on these, bricks are naturally a simple and effective way to share your thoughts with passersby in your area of choice.

*Please note that Sunset Memorial and Stone does not supply dedication bricks.

Give us a call, our Sales Associates will be happy to assist you with any questions.

Custom Engraved Awards, Trophies & More

An award is given to recognize excellence or achievements. We provide quality products that you will be proud to present, and the recipient honoured to receive. Unlike already made plaques, our custom awards are works of art that your recipient will proudly display for many years. Sunset’s designs are tailored to your specific requirements. Our awards come in any colour of granite available and in different shapes and finishes. Depending on the size and colour of the award, a touch of colour can greatly enhance your award.

Additionally, sandblasting and laser etching can be done on wood, glass, some plastics and certain other materials which may better suit your needs. If you already have a material on which you would like to have something engraved, please ask a sales representative to first verify that we can work with it. We are able to produce unique items or larger batches for any occasion.

Let Sunset Memorial & Stone convey your heartfelt recognition award with our custom and unique awards.

Not sure where to start? Give us a call, we can guide you based on your budget, time line, and goals. Our team prides itself on providing quality work completed on-time for your award ceremony, which you would be well-pleased to present to the extraordinary person you are recognizing.

Columbarium Doors

If you need an inscription added to a columbarium door (e.g., date, name), it’s very easy for us to do. We simply remove the door and bring it to our manufacturing facility. We add the inscription and then put in back on the columbarium. We can usually do this type of work quickly any time of year. Depending on where the columbarium is, sometimes it may take a little longer.

Added Inscriptions

Sunset Memorial and Stone can match any lettering style or engraving that’s on an existing memorial.

This is called an added inscription. We can add a name, date, or any image or graphic you’d like. We’ll send you a sample called a proof, which will show you how the added lettering will look before we do the actual engraving.

Epitaphs for Headstones & Graves

Though it is sometimes overlooked—and at times completely omitted—by families, some people say the most important part of a memorial is the epitaph. Epitaphs can be a very personal addition to any monument or columbaria. As with adding custom art or photos, it can be powerful, incorporating a favourite verse, saying or quote.

To help lend inspiration in writing an inscription for your loved one, we have a selection of epitaphs and verses available for your convenience. You may either copy them directly or use them as a basis to create your own personal expression.

Poems and lyrics are occasionally used in place of an epitaph; however these normally require laser etching, depending on their length and the amount of space available on the monument to accommodate it.
