Regardless of the physical item, it’s the graphical details that define a high-quality memorial product, as this is personalization at the highest level of emotional connection. Thus, it’s important to keep things simple, while still delivering a customized product that will accomplish the goal of preserving an eternal memory.

The first time out it may be challenging, but once you get comfortable with the process, you will quickly see that you can template the artwork to make future jobs easier to design. And in reality, you really want to keep choices to a minimum in order to make the task easier on the customer who is probably going through one of the most stressful times in their life.
