Every message is different so we offer a variety of fonts to suit the sentiment – we have the playful Informal font for a sweet message, the calligraphic Script to add sophistication to a classic quote, the clear and simple Modern ideal for dates and the traditional Roman to add a respectful touch to a tribute.
Adding an image to your plaque is a wonderful finishing touch. We have a selection of symbols that we can engrave on request, and can even use different coloured inks to enhance your design – red ink on a rose or heart will create a stunning finish. We can also engrave custom business logos, get in touch to find out more.
A stunning way to display short memorial quotes, our carved inscriptions are lovingly made by hand rather than by machine.Choose from two classic fonts
Our hand carvings are offered in two clear and intelligible fonts; Roman for a traditional and sophisticated serif style and Modern for a clean sans serif style.
The most popular choice is the top rail, pride of place and easily spotted. On the top rail you can opt for 1 or 2 lines of text so this is ideal if you want to add dates below a name. We can also carve 1 line of text into the lower rail (under your knees), a quote would look lovely in this position. We can carve other parts of the bench on request - some past examples include a quote on the back of the top rail and a logo on the arm post.Personalised bespoke benches
