Click here to enlarge image has chosen to use laser engraving exclusively because it believes the product is superior to other processes. Unlike sand carving techniques, laser vitrification does not produce a cavity, which attracts dirt and debris and invites erosion due to the inevitable freeze-thaw cycle in some harsh climates. Also, as the brick engraving deteriorates, it can leave large gaps on the surface, which can be a danger to small heels on ladies’ shoes or to walking canes or other self-assist devices.

The laser vitrification image is not affected by ultraviolet light and is completely resistant to fading. The results from an independent lab indicate the laser engravings appeared quite durable and resistant to weathering. Unlike other brick engraving processes, this low-maintenance product requires minimal care. offers its customers “Memories Marked in Time” through a laser engraved brick program. These memorial walkways or walls are lasting memorials that can be enjoyed by generations in the future and now can be enjoyed in permanent color. An outstanding example is the Heroes Memorial Courtyard in Fenton, Missouri, shown here. To learn more about this technology visit the company website at
