How to use this Website

The following information will help you get the most from our site.

Step 1. Design guidelines and Order/Quote form help.
The Design guidelines and Order/Quote Help pages have useful information guiding
you through the design and selection process. Also see the Definitions and Dimensions
page for a better understanding of the terms used to describe a monument and to
view charts of the common sizes for headstone tablets, grave markers and bases.

Step 2. Browse the Website for ideas and designs.

Take some time to browse the website for ideas and options. To view designs
displayed in different styles and granite colors check out the Horizontal and Vertical
Tablets, Flush and Slant Grave Markers or the Heart and Unique Shaped monuments.

Step 3. Find carvings to add to or create a design.
Once you have selected a monument style and decided if you want a design on
it you may want to add an emblem, symbol, flower or other carving. Check out our
Carving Library which contains hundreds of different carvings used to add to or create
a custom monument. If you can't find what you are looking for contact us for help.

Step 4. Select letter styles for inscriptions.
Now that the design aspect is done it's time to select the letter style that you
would like for the inscriptions. There are many choices you can view in the Text
pages. The most commonly used letter style is Roman Modified. Other
common letter styles are Condensed Roman and Vermarco. Some letter styles will
not work in all applications and we will let you know if that is the case on your order.

Step 5. Choose a panel for the inscriptions.
After selecting the letter styles you can choose a panel style for the inscriptions.
If you selected a design it may already have panels in it. You can pick different panels
if you would like to. Some panels may not work on some monuments or with the design
selected. The most common panel types are Single line, Double line, Scroll and Ribbon.

Step 6. Get a Quote for the monument.
Now that you know what you want it's time to get a quote. The Quote form will ask
you for a lot of information. If you are unsure about some of the information we are requesting you can click onto certain words or sentences for help. If you are still
uncertain you can leave the space blank or unchecked and we will use the standard
choices. The most important information for a quote is the style, size and color of the
monument, design and carving choices and the sizes and amount of inscription letters.
You may also call us for a quote or for help with the quote form.

Step 7. Placing order.
When you are ready to place an order you can use the Order form or call us. The order
form is similar to the quote form except that it requests more specific information. The form will request the design numbers and carving numbers for selections from the
Carving Library. You will also type the names, dates, endearment phrases and any other lettering. There are words and sentences that you may click on for help with the form.

Step 8. Approving the drawing.
Once we receive your order we will prepare a black and white line drawing for you to
carefully check and approve. When the drawing is approved we will proceed with
the manufacturing of the monument.
