Upright – Dies – Bases
Upright monuments are one of the most traditional styles of memorialization. These upright stones are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, as well as a number of materials. The most popular choice is granite, although other options include limestone, marble, and bronze.
Upright monuments are the most popular choice for modern-day memorialization.
They offer a wide variety of customization options, including:
Material—granite, sandstone, marble and bronze statues can all be used to create beautiful upright monuments.
Size and shape—Monuments can be made in any size or shape you choose, ranging from square or rectangular to round or oval. You can also choose the color(s) of your monument’s stone/marble base (white is the most popular), as well as its lettering and other details like borders and symbols.
Inscription—Many people opt to have their loved one’s names engraved on their upright monument(s). Some decide to include dates of birth and death as well; others prefer not to do so because they believe it will unnecessarily draw attention away from whatever message they want their loved ones’ memorials to communicate instead.
Upright monuments come in many different materials, including:
bronze, which is an alloy of copper and tin; it’s usually cast into a mold for use on sculptures like statues or busts. Bronze also refers specifically to the color of the metal itself.
Size and Shape
There are many different sizes available, depending on the person’s preference.
If you would like to have a family member or loved one’s likeness inscribed onto your monument, you can choose from a wide variety of shapes. If they loved the outdoors you might want the top of the memorial to have a tree shape. If they cared deeply for everyone they met a heart might be the best shape for their monument. In either case, we’ll be happy to help you choose the best size for your needs!
Color options for upright monuments include granite, bronze and marble. Each material has its own pros and cons:
Granite is a beautiful natural substance that adds warmth to your memorial. It comes in a variety of colors, with some having more character than others. You’ll need to make sure you choose the right granite color so you can capture the look of your loved one perfectly.
Bronze is perfect for memorials that will last for generations to come because it doesn’t degrade over time like other materials might once exposed to weather or other elements that could cause damage to the surface area of your marker (such as acid rain).
Marble is another timeless option because it’s been used throughout history—you’re probably familiar with its use on statues, but marbles are also great for headstones! This material works well because it won’t fade like other stones do after being exposed too long under direct sunlight; however, marble does not hold up well in windy locales.
An inscription is the text you choose for your monument. This is an opportunity to let family and friends know how much you loved your family member, or just make a simple statement about how special they were.
You can use an inscription that is funny, heartfelt, or both—it’s up to you! Just be sure not to overdo it with details; we want to focus on the best part of your loved one.
