The photo you choose should be clear and preferably have as high a print quality as possible.
We can remove wallpapers and other people from the image if necessary.
Try to choose an image that is not blurry or damaged in any way. Consider whether the image will best illuminate a landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) photo board. In some cases your choice is limited by the size / shape of the stone you have chosen and the amount of caption text. If you are unsure please contact our staff and they will be happy to advise.
It very much depends on the style of tombstone you have chosen. We have a minimum size of letters that we adhere to but all our designs allow enough space for names, dates and a short verse at the very least.
If you want to add a lot of text to a small tombstone, we would recommend avoiding tombstones that require a heart and large sandblasting designs.
Adding a standalone block vase to a tombstone can be a useful way to add more caption space.
Yes. We can reduce the size of most tombstones in our selection. If this is not possible due to a particularly complex style, we can offer something similar to achieve the effect you are looking for.
A tombstone can usually be erected about a week to a month after burial, as the soil requires adequate compaction time. In addition to the tombstone, concrete castings must be made around the grave of your loved one, in order to establish and strengthen the foundation of the tombstone.
We estimate that orders for standard designs from our selection of tombstones take about a week from the date of ordering the tombstone to production and delivery.
This assessment begins a day after the order and the cemetery permit for the erection of the tombstone.
The permit application process is carried out by us and is transparent to you. If you have chosen a tombstone in an unusual style or size, this can take a little longer up to two weeks.
