Cemetery Lettering

Do you letter fieldstones?

Yes, we do letter fieldstones. We can either do it in the shop or out in the field. We like to receive pictures or to view the stone in-person first. Some fieldstones are not suitable for blasting.

What is the territory you service?

Eastern SD, Southern ND, Northern Iowa, West and South Minnesota, and the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Area

What is the 19 problem?

The 19 problem is when companies would put a 19 on the stone for the spouse that has not passed away yet. They did this assuming the spouse would pass away before the year 2000. This proved not to be the case for many people.

How do you fix the 19 problem?
  1. Sand blast out the 19 and put in the real date in the recessed area.
  2. Fill in the 19 with an epoxy mixture. Let it set. Blast the real date over the top. The epoxy will not last forever and will erode away. This is not a permanent solution.
  3. Bring the monument into the shop and saw ¾” off the face. We then re-polish the face and re-blast the whole monument. This creates a perfect looking memorial.
