Most Popular Uses for Stone Uprights
By Mark Etinger
Stone Uprights are used in more ways than we can
imagine. We don't often think about them yet we come
upon them quite frequently in our day to day lives. They
are finely crafted things of beauty, used to
commemorate, to announce and to honor. There are quite a
few popular ways that Stone Uprights are used.
One of the most common uses for cast Stone Uprights is
as name plates. You'll often see this in doctor or
lawyer offices. Stone Uprights are engraved with the
name and title of a person at the office and place on
the desk or even hung up outside the door to let
visitors know who it is they are speaking to and how to
find them. They are also used in larger building
complexes that house multiple businesses so that
visitors can be easily guided to where they need to go.
Donor Uprights are another popular option. Many places
and organizations could not be possible without the help
of giving donors who aid in funding a project or
building a new wing of a building, or whatever it may be
that they choose to give to. They commemorate those who
have given on their own accord. Donor walls are often
set up in an office, organization, or school building so
that others can see the mark these people have left.
Stone Uprights are used to honor more than just donors,
but often service men and women as well. While medals to
wear on their uniform are always given, at times special
Upright can be made to commemorate them. Small Stone
plating is also used on graves of military men and women
who have died in the line of duty, to show that they
were in the service and gave their lives.
You also see Stone Uprights used in places like museums
for informational purposes. Not only do they work well
with the aesthetics but they are also resilient in the
face of tons of visitors who may touch them. They also
stand the test of time and won't wear off the way some
other signs may. This is important for museums who have
long standing pieces that will be displayed for years.
You may not realize it when you look at them, but Stone
Upright are everywhere. They guide us to offices, tell
us whose desk it is, honor men and women and gives us
information. They do so beautifully and timelessly.
