Inscriptions can be added to granite by traditional hand engraving. Payment is made on a per-letter basis and as such can this can become a very expensive aspect of the design. An alternative is to use laser engraving. This option gives a vast choice of fonts which are long-lasting and more aesthetically pleasing.

These can be made from bronze, ceramics or vitreous enamel but will need to be cleaned, otherwise they will be subjected to oxidization.
