Designing a Custom Stone Is as Easy as 1-2-3
November 11, 2022

We’re seeing a rise in the number of custom inquiries and orders as shipping times and stone availability return to a more pre-pandemic normal here at Salem Stones. To make the process as straightforward as possible for our customers, we’re going to highlight its various aspects in a series of emails.

First up—the design process, which looks like this:

Step 1: Contact our Custom Designs Team.

Our customers enjoy that Salem Inspire can be used to customize most standard monument sizes and shapes. However, when it comes to truly customized shapes and designs, our Custom Design Team works hand-in-hand with you. In fact, we believe we offer an unprecedented level of pre-sale support. That’s because we also believe it’s the best way to ensure that families will get exactly what they want.

Step 2: Choose from a variety of options. 

Our design team can create pretty much anything anyone can think of, including carvings in any shape, symbol or likeness, as well as stones of various colors. If your family already has a vision, our design team will go to work on creating a drawing. If they need a little help with creating a vision, we are here to assist. Once the vision is clear, we will share different versions and discuss the range of options.

Step 3: Watch it come to life.

With a detailed schematic to serve as a reference to the agreed-upon design, you can relax as we begin production.

Examples of our custom work can be found here. And please reach out to our Custom Designs Team at or by phone at (866) 834-1219 with any questions about our design process.
