Pin Etchings

Pin Etching is one of the new services offered by Patten’s and is one of the best for creating exact replicas of your photos on stone. In this design process we take the photo of your choosing and edit it to your liking. Then the image is ran through a computerized machine that etches your selection in extremely fine detail. This service is only available on Jet Black granite.

I can’t say enough nice things about this family business. Our stone was over 3 years in the making…we changed our minds a lot about what we needed. They were patient and kind, and our headstone is a beautiful work of art. Thanks so much!!!
