Laser Design

Riley-Gardner Memorial of Wichita Falls has been producing our own laser designed monuments since 2004. Before a lasered monument is created, an image must be input or designed in our computer program. This is a very tedious and time intensive process; however, once our artists have created an image, we can duplicate it as many times as needed. The most common color used for laser etching is Premium Black. Premium Black produces the cleanest laser photos and designs one can find. Other colors, such as Catseye Red and Dark Cloud, have proven to work well with laser; those colors show laser artwork very nicely but are not recommended for laser photos. Laser monuments are becoming more and more common in cemeteries. One question often asked is, “How long will the laser design last?” Laser, like sandblast, puts a break in the polish and exposes the raw stone beneath. The laser heats the stone and removes the polish where sandblast cuts into the stone therefore removing the polish. Unless the monument loses its polish or is re-polished the laser design will last for many years to come.

* Update * They completely missed the their quoted time of 180 days but they finally got the headstone set. While I understand things happen, a little communication goes along way. They never offer any information unless you chase them down for it. They demand payment upfront but won't deliver anything. This isn't a big deal but the lack of communication is a major issue I have. Hopefully everyone else has better luck than I did. I still would not recommend this place as my first choice but if timing is not an issue for you, go for it. Just be prepared to be extremely patient.
