Headstone Engraving Long Island City NY - Monument Lettering - Gravestone1

Supreme Memorials was founded in 1951 by both Rosario Cassara 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 took pride with every memorial he designed after putting a lot of time and craftsmanship into each one. 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.

At 60+ years old our company is very young in this industry. Make no mistake as Supreme Memorials enters its fourth generation you will see that we still concentrate to the attention to detail that Rosario and Carmine first demanded.

To provide an accurate quote, it's necessary to first complete and submit a formal Request for Estimate so that we can send one of our experienced craftsmen to your memorial to examine the type, style, and amount of lettering involved. Because every monument is unique, we carefully measure the dimensions of your monument, measurement the existing lettering, and take several photos to ensure precision and accuracy for your project. From there, we create a tracing of your monument (called a rub) to further document the style, size, and proper layout of the lettering.

After completing an on-site assessment of your monument, we will mail you a photo to verify the information to be added, including the exact position of the engraving on the monument. We will also forward you any forms from the cemetery requiring additional information or a signature. Depending on the cemetery, there are occasions when your signature will need to be notarized.

Our master craftsmen will begin the engraving process on your monument. We employ the area's finest engraving experts to perform the superior service that you and your loved ones deserve.

Whether the letters are knife-cut, frosted outline, hand-tooled or hand-drawn, our skilled engravers can match any style. This is what distinguishes monumentlettering.com from other monument shops.

While most cemetery engraving work is done using a sandblast technique, we are one of the few firms left on the east coast that has the capability to match classic hand-carved letters on site using the same painstaking craftsmanship that was used thousands of years ago.

Headstone Engraving
"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." To build truly custom memorials please speak to the fourth generation Joseph and Michael. Carmine was proud of the painstaking craftsmanship he put into every memorial he designed, as are his grandsons Joseph and Michael.
