Cemetery Inscription Hempstead NY - Monument Lettering - Tombstone_Engraver_052x

Supreme Memorials was founded in 1951 by Rosario and Carmine Cassara. Both Italian Immigrants Rosario and his son Carmine would split the long 15 hour days. Rosario opened the shop at 7:00am and Carmine would close at 10:00pm. At the time the only products we were offering were Gray Granite and White Marble. All work was hand carved.

Carmine was proud of the painstaking craftsmanship he put into every memorial he designed. He also wanted the customer to know that they indeed were buying a product second to none. Carmine wanted his customers to have the best value so he started importing the marble from Italy and the granite from Vermont with no middlemen. "Buy Direct and Save" It was a revolution.

"Buy Direct and Save"

Four generations and we still implement that same policy. We now offer as many as 17 different colors from around the Globe. Carmine's son Frank introduced different colors of granite to our showroom. We have many designs and a majority of our work is still hand carved. Now with new technology we are able to create "truly custom memorials". Carmine was proud of the painstaking craftsmanship he put into every memorial he designed, as are his grandsons Joseph and Michael.

Hempstead NY Area Monument Cleaning / Restoration Process
The process begins when you place an order online. Filling out our order form you will be filling out all the necessary information for MonumentLettering.com to send our carvers to the cemetery to take a rubbing (exact copy) of your memorial. The first thing we look at is the size and style of the letters on your monument or marker. We do this is to verify the style, size of the lettering and the proper layout.
We will then email (or mail via USPS) you a photo of your monument to insure we are going to perform the work on the right monument.This approval email (or mail via usps) will outline exactly what we would engrave on the monument, as well as the position on the monument it would be engraved. If cemetery forms need to be signed we will then mail them to you already filled out, just requiring your signature and in some cases your signature needs to be notarized. Along with the photo, and cemetery forms (if necessary) we will have the precise information that you have requested us to add, as well as the exact location on the stone to do the engraving. At this time we will also request for a copy of the cemetery deed or the original (if needed) by the cemetery, along with the check or money order made payable to the cemetery. Once this paperwork is returned to us, we proceed to file for work permits with the cemetery to proceed with the lettering work for you. After the job is completed, we send you an acknowledgement via email or USPS. No lettering would be done until we received approval from you that everything is accurate.
