Granite is one of the hardest and most durable rocks on the planet, which makes it the perfect choice for creating a lasting personal treasure. The absolute black granite is offered as free form shapes that vary in thickness from 3/4" to 1 1/4". A state-of-the-art etching system is used which results in a slight texture to the words and a color variation which makes the words easy to read.
SIZE: 11" x 16"
Decide what you would like to have carved into the stone. Keep in mind that you should choose a stone that is large enough for the letters to be at least 1/2" tall. That will make the letters readable for someone standing nearby.
Be sure to pick your typeface: Times New Roman / Liberty / Cloister
For items to be viewed from a distance, such as those with house numbers, the letters should be atleast 2" tall. It is recommended that a large stone with six (6) available lines and more surface area be used. By using only 2-3 lines on a larger stone for an address it allows the overall text to be larger.
Note: Actual shapes may vary from photo. Stones designed with all capital letters will fit less characters per line.
