A flat marker is a gravestone or tombstone that sits flush with the surrounding ground. This is a very common option to pay tribute to the loved ones that have been lost. The cost of a flat marker is relatively low, but this does not mean that the quality is compromised or that it has any less meaning or devotion to your special person. We have outlined for you the different ways we are able to customize the flat marker to make it suit the life that your loved one has lived and to be a suitable tribute to them.
Flat markers can be made with either bronze or granite, dependent on your preference. If you opt for a bronze finish, this is generally a plate that is placed over a granite surface. This allows for additional decoration and for the flat marker to stand out. Granite flat markers can come in a range of different colors to suit the personality of the individual and the preference of style. Either of these materials can be customized to gain the ideal look of the flat marker with precise detail.
All our flat markers are completely customizable so that you can find the perfect fit to pay homage to your loved one. You can change the size, shape and colors of the flat marker to find the right combination for a beautiful memorial. As granite comes in many colors there are a range to choose from, and these can be cut into any shape that you chose whether it be a rectangle, butterfly or guitar. Our team of experts can help guide you on current trends and what works well together, as well as listen to our client’s explanation on their loved one and find something they believe is suited to them.
Our team at Columbus Headstones are passionate about the decoration of a flat marker and understand the meaning behind each decorative element. You can have decorative flowers or wreaths, imprints of animals, boarders, poems, and even a flower holder if you chose. Whichever way you choose to decorate the memorial for your special person, we will make sure that it is of the best quality to withstand the tests of time. We understand that a gravestone will be the last and longest remaining memory of your dearly departed so help to make sure that it is the best it possibly can be in their honor.
A flat marker also has the ability to have a print of a photograph of your loved, so that their smile and character can be remembered and seen for many years to come by those who visit, or those who are just passing by. Photographs have become more popular in recent years as it is the best way to individualize the tribute and see the person who has been laid to rest. We can help working pictures in around the wording of the stone so that it fits seamlessly.
