Our Story

  • Sartin Memorials & Mike's Laser Etching operates out of Saint Georges, Delaware. Established in 1940, Sartin Memorials has served the community by offering quality headstones, gravestones, and cemetery memorials at fair prices for 70 years. We are a direct granite importer which allows us to offer wholesale pricing on headstones, gravestones, and cemetery memorials. Purchasing a headstone can be a difficult task and we at Sartin Memorials do everything in our power to make the experience as pleasant as possible. We offer options other monument dealer can't! As a Delaware monument dealer we are proud to provide the tri-state area with headstones and gravestones to adorn the graves of lost loved ones. We also offer cemetery lettering serves to our local customers when the time to add a final date to an existing headstone comes.

    In 2004 Mike, the owner, invested in the headstone engraving technology of the future...laser etching! He purchased a Vytek FX Laser Etcher and Mike's Laser Etching was born. The ability to laser etch photos, images, and lettering on granite and marble has made it possible to customize headstones and gravestones in a way traditional sandblasting never could. With the success our Mike's Laser Etching, locally & online, we were able to recently expand our laser etching endeavors with the purchase of two top of the line Vytek LStar Laser Etchers. Our LStars can etch a single image up to 8' x 4'! We are now capable of etching a continuous image from one side of a large headstone to the other, with no seams or breaks, allowing us to create truly beautiful and unique headstones and gravestones for our customers all over the United States. Mike's Laser Etching & Sartin Memorials was interviewed by Middletown Transcription in March of 2009. Stop by and read the article about us on the Transcripts' website.
