THE GRANITE MEMORIAL IS SHIPPED TO US.

A STENCIL IS CREATED VIA COMPUTER, AND LAID OUT ONTO THE SURFACE TO BE LETTERED.

THE PARTS OF THE LETTERING & DESIGN ARE THEN PICKED AWAY BEFORE SANDBLASTING

THE MEMORIAL IS THEN PLACED ON A SPECIAL CART & PUT INTO THE BLASTING ROOM.

ONCE THE LETTERING HAS BEEN SANDBLASTED INTO THE PIECE, PAINT IS APPLIED IN THE DESIRED COLOR.

AFTER THE PAINT IS DRY, THE STENCIL IS PEELED AWAY AND THE MARKER IS CLEANED.
