How We Make Them

Step 1

After receiving your order, your design and lettering are merged together in the computer.

Step 2

The design is then cut in the stencil with the plotter.

Step 3

The stencil is placed on the stone and the areas to be sandblasted are removed.

Step 4

The design is sandblasted into the stone. May be repeated for additional detail.

Step 5

A spray-in contrasting agent is sprayed in to the letters to help with contrast.

Step 6

The stencil is removed from the stone. The stone is then washed and readied for shipment.
