In search for experienced laser engravers that have engraved granite grave markers. My question is does anyone have any experience with this market? Second question: how are the markers holding up to the elements? Please respond with your experience. It is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I've done 5-6 of them, plus another few granite and a couple of more tiles
placed below memorial trees. The oldest is two years, and we recently walked by and saw it. Some moss on it as you would expect here if it's not cleaned, but otherwise like new.

I have been doing them for about 7 years. No complaints yet.

Great looking work.

Are they granite? Are they showing any signs weathering?

Thanks guys,
The engravings are absolute black granite.They are showing no sign
of weathering or fading. May I also add that we do not use any color fill.
