Planning your Memorial Purchase
Know your Memorial Budget:
You can spend as much as you wish on a custom headstone or memorial. Most people spend between $3000.00 and $4500.00 on granite headstones. We suggest you choose your preferred option or the option that you or your family can afford. We have top quality, affordable concrete headstones & memorials to fit all needs.
Pick a Headstone Size:
Council by-laws can influence memorial size - don't be afraid to ask us for advice. By-laws permitting, you can plan your headstone as large or as small as your budget allows.
Pick a Colour:
Black is the traditional colour of headstones and memorials, and for years was the only colour available. Most of our designs are white, giving your headstone a marble finished look. You may wish to select a custom colour or finish from our design or let us know exactly what you would prefer and we will strive to accommodate your needs.
Pick a Headstone Shape:
Stock headstones are readily available, however check if you are wanting a custom headstone or memorial, don't leave it too late. It could take anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months to finished a completed custom headstone depending on size and design.
At Art@Altitude, we encourage families to design their own headstones and we create to fit your needs. Custom made headstones and memorials can be just about any shape that it is physically possible to make in concrete, and all are top quality.
Please allow PLENTY of time (4 or more months) if an unveiling is planned.
Pick a Memorial Base:
Your headstone base can include a flower vase or two. You may also wish to inscribe the base with a name, sentiment, or design.
Council by-laws can influence the size of a memorials base.
Plan your Memorial Inscription:
We will be happy to help you plan your inscription. Please remember to bring details such as date of birth, date of passing, relationship to spouse and family, and a suitable sentiment (we can help with suggestions). We also have a large selection of Epitaphs, Sentiments & other suitable Verses for your Memorial.
You may wish to add a floral tribute or personalised design - both of which can significantly enhance a memorial.
Add a Ceramic Photo:
Colour or black and white photos can be supplied in a variety of shapes and sizes, from miniature through to 24cm x 18 cm. A standard size for most memorials is 9 x 12cm. Supply of a photo takes approximately 3 weeks. Photos can be processed from off your scanner if required, or bring in any size photo you wish.
We can assist with a wide range of suitable verse & sentiments to compliment your text.
Installing Your Memorial:
We will gladly give you full advice and instructions.
Public cemeteries are regulated heavily now so few people can install headstones and memorials in council operated cemeteries any more.
