Markers can come in three types of stone designs. Flush, slant and beveled.
A flush marker design is a single slab of granite or marble with all the personalization of your choice that is placed flush with the ground. There may be some variation on the placement of the stones based on the cemetery’s rules, with some being set a couple of inches above the ground.
A slant design is a thick wedge cut of granite or marble with a downward slant to the polished front surface. There can be a variation to the overall shape and size of the stone. Depending on your preferences.
A bevel marker is a rectangular shaped stone where the back is slightly taller than the front, thus creating the beveled face. This is more visible than a flush marker and less so than the slant design.
