American Lighthouse Foundation Announces Release of Granite Lighthouse Collectibles

The American Lighthouse Foundation is pleased to announce the release of a brand new series of collectibles featuring lighthouse images laser-etched into black granite. These unique and distinctive collectibles are available only through a special partnership with the Brunswick, Maine-based company Get-Etched.

This initial series includes over 15 lighthouse images available on your choice of a set of four coasters and 5” x 7” or 8.5” x 11” plaques, which come with a black stand for out of the box display. The classy lighthouse etchings are great for home or office and are sure to please family and friends who love the coast and lighthouses.

A portion of each sale will benefit the lighthouse preservation efforts of the American Lighthouse Foundation. ALF is a national non-profit leader in historic preservation with twelve chapters and twenty lighthouses under its stewardship.

Through this special program, Get-Etched can also custom etch virtually any image into the granite. To learn more on how you can get one of these special lighthouse collectibles, visit

Or you may call the American Lighthouse Foundation at 207-594-4174.

My best, :D

They look amazingly detailed, very nice pieces. The option to do customized ones allows for some Great Lakes lights to be had as well.
