The Proof of Care

Once you've crafted your design, Signature Headstones' professional design team steps in to ensure every detail is perfect. They meticulously review the design, making adjustments to text, images, and layouts as needed. This attention to detail guarantees that the final product is a harmonious blend of beauty and elegance. For those who desire an extra touch of assurance, a layout proof can be obtained for a nominal fee, allowing you to see exactly what your headstone will look like before production begins.

From Creation to Delivery

Signature Headstones' commitment extends to the entire process, from the initial design to the final delivery. After the proofing stage, your headstone enters the production phase, where skilled craftsmen bring your design to life. The company keeps a selection of stones in stock, which typically take 2-4 weeks to produce, while other shapes might take 2-24 weeks based on availability.

Once your custom headstone is created, shipping is handled with the utmost care. The headstones are securely crated in wooden boxes to ensure they arrive in pristine condition. The delivery process, which takes between 1-7 business days depending on your location, is a crucial moment to inform the cemetery about the impending arrival.
