HEADSTONE LAYOUTS/DRAFTS

Once you have placed your order, you will need to supply the wording.

A wording help sheet may be given to assist you with this part of the process, along with an artwork brochure. If you would like a custom artwork design, we will then discuss the design and give you a quote to have this created by our designer.

Once the layout has been drafted, it will be sent out to you for checking. We ask that you check through this carefully. Should there be any corrections required, you will need to return this to us to be amended. Once everything is correct and has been approved by you and your family, we will ask you to sign and return it to us.
