Custom Cross Monument

We received a call from a customer browsing our website. She wanted a tall monument with a cross at the top and room for a landscape design at the bottom. This image is of the completed monument. Visit the “Custom Monument” page of our website to view the initial concept designed by our graphic artist, as well as the preview of the monument that was sent to the customer to review lettering and image placement.

Passing on Savings!

Mike’s Laser Etching & Sartin Memorials provides the highest quality monument memorials for the lowest possible pricing. This is possible because we work directly with the stone manufacturers in Europe and Asia to ship their products to our shop in St. George’s, Delaware. By doing this, we are able to pass on the discount we receive by ordering wholesale to our customers. Most other monument and memorial dealers in the United States do not order directly from the manufacturers, but instead order from a local wholesaler who has ordered from the manufacturer. This “middle man” of course charges the fee to the local retail monument dealers who order from them, thus causing a tremendous increase in the price the retail dealer is paying for the stone. This increase is then passed on to their customer, causing the customer to pay as much as 75% more than what the original wholesale company paid the manufacturer. 

In addition to the ability to receive a much lower price, there are several other benefits our customers receive from Mike’s Laser Etching/Sartin Memorials ordering directly from the manufacturer. If a customer is unable to locate the exact memorial they would like to display at their loved one’s resting place in our extensive inventory, we are able to order a custom monument directly from the manufacturer! We are able to provide our clients a custom monument design taken from a picture, a drawing, a graphic design, etc. Some of our most amazing custom monuments have been a dragon and a butterfly. Look on the “Inventory” and then the “Custom” page for pictures of the finished monument!

Here at Mike’s Laser Etching/Sartin Memorials, we are also able to provide our customers with the most up to date monument designs much sooner than the retail dealers who must wait for their wholesale buyers to purchase a crate full of these new designs. Our owner orders a crate full of a variety of both new, traditional and custom monuments rather than ordering a crate full of only one type of monument, as most wholesale buyers do. When the newest cremation benches were being designed, Mike’s Laser Etching was one of the first companies in the United States to have them in stock to offer to customers. We are proud to be able to offer the customer service of a retail dealer with the services and inventory of a wholesale buyer.

We are so confident in our prices, that we offer a Lowest Price Guarantee! If you receive a lower quote from a competitor, we’ll beat their price on any identical in stock headstone or send you a free porcelain photo (valued at over $200). The porcelain photo can either be added to an existing headstone or displayed in the home! Its your choice!
