Why Stone Deal Toys?

Here at Altrum, we’re always looking to provide our clients with new ways to set their financial tombstones apart from the rest. One of our favorite ways to do that is to include some non-traditional materials to those designs. Stone is, without a doubt, one of those materials. Being able to use stone will not only add weight to your material but will certainly be sure to give it an elevated and modern look that those traditional pieces don’t have.   

Whether the stone is used as the base or for the entire financial tombstone, the finished product will never fail to impress. Using stone in a banking tombstone is quite popular today in many industries. Coming in at the top would be real estate deal toys, as well as anything having to do with mining.  

Different Types of Stone  

Stone will help you achieve any sort of modern and earth-like design you have in mind for your tombstone. For example, maybe you’d like to incorporate marble into your design. This is metamorphosed limestone, consisting mainly of recrystallized calcite or dolomite. It is capable of taking a high polish and has a wide range of colors and variations. This technique is typically used in sculpture and architecture. There are different shapes and sizes depending on the product you are looking for. For example, something like a plaque, the shape will usually be a rectangular or custom shape.  

Or maybe you’re looking for granite? This is also a common material used, as it a coarse-grained, light-colored, hard igneous rock consisting of quartz, orthoclase or microcline, and mica. It is formed from magma. This can be shaded from pink to dark grey or even black.  

Let’s say you would like to achieve the look of stone but don’t necessarily want a stone on your desk. Easy! We have a number of different techniques to help you get to this vision. By mixing different materials and colors, we can create a marbled or stone effect. For example, a cast stone is a powder mixture of acrylic resin and minerals that gives the look of stone. The material is ideas for custom stone molds. It is also lighter than real stone.  

Stone Tombstone Processes  

There are a number of different shapes, sizes, and colors that stone can take, believe it not. You might even want to use stone, but don’t want the weight of it. We are able to create a stone-like allusion though a number of different materials to help you achieve the look you are going for. Either way, the process of using stone or stone-like materials includes a process that consists of cutting, sawing, beveling, etching, and polishing to include a finished stone piece. The manufacturing process consists of both handwork and machine work.  

With that being said, we can sand etch your stone deal toys, we can also color fill or laser-engrave onto them. Sand-etching is the process of using controlled high-pressure compressed air to direct an abrasive material surface. Color fill is the process in which ink is used to add color to laser engraved text.

For your typical financial tombstone, the marble and granite shapes will usually be a square, rectangle, pyramid, cube, triangle, prism, or a round shape. A stone material could also be used instead as an option for your base. Common stone base designs typically take the shape of a rectangle or a rectangle with bevels and flat-topped pyramids. Sizes for this will vary!

It will be sure to add that “wow” factor you are looking for, as well as impress your own clients. We’re just a call away and we’ll get started with a few stone designs for your next deal toy.
