The folks at Bishop Stone and Metal Arts are great!  They are extremely talented and have been trained by some of the best.  By being efficient, courteous and value priced, they are our choice for our monument lettering needs!

Tom Gale and Gerald Sellers Sellers & Gale

Bishop Stone and Metal Arts has been in the Virginia Historical Society’s headquarters building several times for stone carving projects and in every case, has far exceeded my expectations.  They worked closely with our security, maintenance and curatorial staff to keep disruptions to a minimum and to safeguard the collections.

The artistic elements of the work have been superlative.  In all our projects, the carving was clean, crisp, exactly as we wanted it.  They worked from a carefully thought-out template with much attention to the design, the spacing, and the typography.

I would encourage anyone thinking of commissioning Bishop Stone to visit the Virginia Historical Society to view their work.  I will use them again.

Jennifer W. Dzielak, Office Manager Hanover County Parks and Recreation

Emmanuel’s sidewalk to our Memorial Garden has been enhanced by Bishop Stone’s inscribed bricks making it a special place to remember a loved one. They sent our committee a design to suit our bricks, and when given the go ahead, came out and engraved them on site in a timely manner. We plan to continue to use their service bi-annually for our congregation.

Marilyn Malone Emmanuel Church

Bishop Stone did a remarkable job. Not only were the people there patient in the time consuming process of collecting and verifying some 50 names, they were extremely helpful in making decisions regarding the lay-out and engraving details. I feel very confident in recommending Bishop Stone and Metal Arts to anyone. You will not be disappointed!
