“We don’t know that font” is not an excuse for engraving mismatched lettering on a headstone. All lettering can be matched, and every memorial deserves to have the lettering accurately reproduced while adding subsequent information. The Monument Lettering Center specializes in matching hand drawn lettering and calligraphy often found on cemetery headstones throughout the 20th century, as well as identifying and matching uncommon or difficult to identify digital fonts used on memorials beginning in the mid 1980s.
