Valier’s Marty and Deidre Woolf with son, Gage, opened Rocky Mountain Lazer Monument and More, last March. They are constantly expanding their inventory of unique and personalized items and will be one of the featured vendors at the Valier Christmas Stroll on Dec. 2.

When Marty and Deidre Woolf started Rocky Mountain Lazer Monument and More last March, their goal was “to help families memorialize their loved ones with affordable headstones that worked with most budgets.” They soon realized their monument business had potential to grow beyond the original vision.

“Once we understood the capabilities of our machine a little better,” Deidre explained, “we quickly expanded the business to include general custom engraving.” 

The capabilities are endless because the machine is very versatile. “We can engrave on literally just about any surface, from food to rocks,” continued Deidre. “We sell a little of everything from custom glasses and home wall decor to beautiful granite gravestones. We also custom build items to make each piece personal to the customer.”

The new venture has presented some challenges for the Woolfs. As with many businesses, the current pandemic has slowed their inventory supply. Additionally, COVID-19 and the constant worry of the unknown kept customers at a distance when they first opened for business.

The Woolfs feel the most rewarding aspect of this endeavor has been, “helping families through tough times, knowing that we can help make special memories last forever.”
