The first step in purchasing a memorial is to select the shape , color and size of the granite to be used followed by determining what artwork and inscriptions will be added. Next we will put your ideas on paper using our CAD program to help visualize what your memorial may look like. Once the design has been agreed upon we forward the artwork to our manufacturers drafting department for final review and approval. Upon customer approval of a final proof the process of cutting the granite begins. Manufacturing time is typically 6 – 8 weeks if the granite is in stock. Many custom shape or out of stock granites come from overseas and may take from 3-4 months to be ordered and received by the manufacturer. During the time of the manufacture process we will install a concrete foundation for the memorial to rest on at your location in the cemetery. Upon the manufacturers completion of the memorial it will be shipped to us, we will then install the marker in the cemetery at our earliest possible opportunity. Unfortunately snow and extremely wet conditions in the cemetery can cause delays in installation.
