Granite State Grave Markers Plaque Review and Giveaway

I had the pleasure of working with Granite State Grave Markers back in November. I was super amazed with their work in making my baby brother his grave marker. Their grave markers are very reasonably priced which is what I loved about them so much. They also now offer etchings to be done on their 24″ x 12″ x 4″ black markers. This is considered extra, and comes with an extra $75 cost. Well worth every penny!

Recently, Granite State Grave Markers, launched a new program. They now have plaques! When they contacted me about possibly doing a review for them, I had to jump on this one. With seeing their work first hand on my brothers grave marker, I knew this service was also going to be fabulous.

It took me a few to decide what I wanted. One great thing about their plaques, is you can have pretty much anything put on the plaques.

After taking a few days to fully decide, I decided I would have one made for my mom. I had to be sneaky, because I didn’t have any good pictures to use, so I went with that I want to get pictures of me from when I was a baby story. This gave me the opportunity to get that perfect picture.

I went with a picture that was the last “family” one taken of my brother, and sisters before my brother passed away. I knew this was going to be perfect.

Plaque from GSGM12x12 Plaque GSGM

This was a very hard secret to keep, once the plaques arrived in the mail, I got in the car and headed to my mom’s to show her what I received in the mail for her.

I handed her the box, and she started to cry. After getting over the shock, she just kept stating how beautiful they were, and how much she loved them. All day that day, whenever she looked at the plaque she cried. I am sure the tears were both happy, and sad.

Shortly after she posted this on her facebook…

Look what my amazing lovely daughter had made for me. Thank you so much Jammie. Yes I’m still crying like a baby. That was one of the last pictures of all my children before my son went to be a angel.

As you can tell, my mom was also very impressed with the product she received, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she was to order a few more.

You may be thinking to yourself these plaques must cost a fortune, NOPE! They don’t these plaques just like their grave markers are very reasonably priced. Their introductory price is $50 for the 6″ x 6″ plaque, and $75 for the 12″ x 12″ plaque. If you purchase both the small and large one, and it is of the same design the price is $115, and this also includes shipping and handling. So there’s no other fees.

How would one of you like to win a 12″ x 12″ plaque? Well, Granite State Grave Markers is offering a 12″ x 12″ plaque to one of my readers! How awesome is that!!!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE QUALITY & THIS IS A PRODUCT THAT YOU CAN HAVE FOREVER !

  2. First of all, that is an amazing gift you gave to your Mom. {Hugs}
    Things I learned:
    All granite options are the same low price.
    The offer not only gravemarkers for our loved ones but also for pets.
    Their grave markers meet 99.9% cemetery requirements.

  3. If I were to win, I’m torn on what to have put on it. I think I’d either choose a poem with an etching for my Mom’s grave or gift the win to my sister for her baby that was still-born. She was never able to put a grave marker up for her.
