To insert the first text to be engraved, type your desired text into the box on the left side of the screen. When you are satisfied with your wording, click on Validate. On the right of the screen the text will appear on the memorial; you can reposition it by clicking on the text and holding down the mouse button to drag the text to the desired position.
To add another text zone, click on “Add a Text”, a new text box icon will appear on the memorial on the right of the screen. Click on the icon and then enter the additional text in the box on the left. When you are satisfied, click to validate and see on the memorial, as before. You can add up to three different texts in this way.
You can choose an alternative style or size of font, and alter the text alignment. Don’t forget to click to validate after each change to see the result on the memorial on the right. You can also adjust the spacing between lines to suit your requirements. You can also click to select different engraving colours; the golden lettering is in 22 carat gold which is exceptionally durable, while special paints are used for the other colours. A list of standard wordings (in French) is also available in pdf format; these texts can of course be modified as you wish.
You can save your custom engraved plaque at any time by clicking on the “Save plaque” button at the top left, and then modify it subsequently. To access this functionality, you will need to have created a free account. Similarly, the “Print the plaque” button at the bottom right enables you to print your design.
Once you are happy with all aspects of the wording of your memorial tribute, click on the “next step” button.
