Our monument artists can add new inscriptions to existing headstones that have already been installed in the cemetery. If you need to add a new or additional inscription on a headstone, we will provide a free, no-obligation estimate.
At Fox Memorials, we approach each new inscription project with the highest level of respect and care for your monument. Our team of monument artists uses high-tech inscribing tools to alter or add inscriptions without compromising the headstone’s integrity.
Without removing the headstone from the cemetery, our team of monument artists can add a new inscription. This is an a common choice for families who order a headstone, and later choose to add additional details. Because the monument remains in the gravesite, we can keep the cost and time window of this project low.
Before beginning a project, we always create a digital rendering of the altered monument to ensure that we are accurately satisfying your request. We will only begin adding the new inscription after receiving your approval. We will guide you through the whole process, and keep you updated on the status of the project.
Many couples choose to order a double Jewish headstone to share a gravesite with their loved one. Often, families choose to have additional details inscribed on these double Jewish headstones at a later date.
Some families choose to initially order a monument without an epitaph, and instead only include details such as the dates and name. We can inscribe a new epitaph on an existing monument later on.
Our monument artists can inscribe a variety of Jewish headstone symbols. Common Jewish monument symbols include the Menorah, the Star of David, and the Torah.
When adding new headstone inscriptions, we understand the need for a lettering style that is consistent with the rest of the inscription. We can mimic the lettering style, font, and technique to match the rest of the headstone. Complicated lettering styles that are frosted, polished, outlined or raised can also be replicated. We can also inscribe Hebrew lettering on your existing headstone.
At Fox Memorials, we are always available to provide the highest level of service for families who wish to add new inscriptions on headstones. Contact us to learn more about how this process works, or with a request for new lettering.
