A marker should last for generations, and be as
unique as the life it commemorates.
We therefore feel it is important to provide you with not only a
detailed itemization of the cost, but also to point out any factors that you may
want to consider before finalizing your selection. These details could include design elements,
overall aesthetics, or even design requirements that may be imposed by the
cemetery. In short, we do not expect you to just pick out a design, enter your
credit card number and then
electronically "checkout". Instead, we want to make our
resources available to you so that you can select a
marker that will fulfill your every expectation.
To order a marker, follow these three easy steps:
1) Select The Marker You Prefer
|You will want to select the
design, the color of
stone, the size of the marker, and the
inscription. We can help you if you are not sure of certain details, such as
the appropriate size, or what colors would look best with a particular
design. You can also optionally personalize the marker with your choice of
lettering styles, emblems
or even photographs.
2) Request a Price Quote
|Using our online
price quote request form, you can tell us what
you have selected. We will respond within 48 hours via e-mail with a
detailed itemization, as well as any information that you may want to
consider, or any questions we might have about your selection.
3) Place The Order
|If our e-mailed quote meets with your
approval, you can reply to us via e-mail and we will forward the ordering documents to you by mail, fax,
or via e-mail in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. Once we
receive your signature and payment, we will prepare a design layout,
which is a computer generated black and white line drawing of the text
inscription and any design elements. You will then have the opportunity to make any corrections
necessary. We will not begin the production of the marker until you have approved the
Most markers are completed and shipped within four to eight weeks once
the layout is approved (depending on whether any photo images are involved).
Depending on the marker weight, smaller markers will be shipped via UPS Ground,
and larger markers via common carrier truck. Most granite markers will be
shipped on the 1st or 15th of the month, with delivery usually taking 1-7 working
days depending on geographic area.
