Design creation

      • Choose the size and shape for your product, with a stand and border if required.
      • You can add your inscription to the design. Choose a font, colour and size, and then position the wordings to suit your design. First time users are encouraged to add only 3-4 lines at a time till you get familiar with sizing and positioning the text on your design.
      • Next add one or more of the available motifs to your design. Choose from stainless steel, bronze, laser-etched artwork, raised back motifs and glass backed motifs.
      • Available images to use are ceramic photos, lifetime images, laser etched granite images, inlays and overlays and porcelain overlays and inlays.

You can click on the ‘click price’ button found at the lower left hand menu of DYO during any stage of the design button to get an itemized price for all your design elements. Then return to your design and delete any unwanted elements by highlighting the element and clicking ‘delete’.
