Upright monuments provide the most comprehensive memorial design choice. Upright monuments are generally designed as a minimum 2-piece set. The tall and upright standing piece is referred to as a Die and it sits atop a low lying flat piece that serves as a Base. Usually an upright monument is set to stand upright on a sturdy concrete foundation.
- Upright monuments are commonly designed with a Serpentine Top shape with all sides polished.
- Unique shapes, such as a heart shape, can also be created by choosing from our variety of special cut designs.
- An upright monument provides both a space for lettering and design on the front and space on the back to mount memorial plaques, like bronze veteran markers. - Keep in mind while designing your memorial that certain cemeteries have regulations that can limit the size, finish, or color, or engraving on your monument.
