Headstone inscriptions are sandblasted using our specialized sandblasting equipment onto our headstones and can be applied in your choice of font, size and placement.
We have no character limit but recommend the inscription is kept to 120 characters on a small stone and 150 characters on a large stone.
Too many characters in relation to the size of the stone will cause the lettering to be reduced in size and may not appear clearly when sandblasted. We will advise you if this is likely to be the case. We will always send a proof for you look at and we will only do the printing once you are 100% satisfied.

Engraving Headstones and Memorials

It is possible for any font to be engraved onto the stone there are some fonts which stand out more we will discuss this and go through this with you, We can do any language on the headstone (e.g. English, Chinese characters, Cyrillic characters and many more). Once you have approved the design, your order will be ready for installation in one month’s time.

  • Prices for engraved (sandblasted) lettering on a headstone: $299+GST
  • Other languages besides English do cost more this is generally $399+GST


We at Stone Headstones offer hand engraving for items that cannot be engraved on machine eg Rings, Trophies and other Odd shape items or anything customized. Hand engraving will cut the material that is underneath to show the engraving. Hand engraving is a skill that many people offer but don’t do it with pride or flair. This is a very specialized field and at Stone Headstones we have over 16+ years of hand engraving experience,
