Tennessee Whitestone is a beautiful natural soft white in color with veins of rust due to the presence of iron in the stone. As in all natural stone, color and textures will vary. Thickness varies from stone to stone: 2" to 4" is common. Carving the words into the stone produces depth to each letter which is then hand painted. Each stone is hand-picked to compliment your choice of words.
SIZE: 11" x 16"
Decide what you would like to have carved into the stone. Keep in mind that you should choose a stone that is large enough for the letters to be at least 1/2" tall. That will make the letters readable for someone standing nearby.
Be sure to pick your typeface: Times New Roman / Liberty / Cloister
For items to be viewed from a distance, such as those with house numbers, the letters should be atleast 2" tall. It is recommended that a large stone with six (6) available lines and more surface area be used. By using only 2-3 lines on a larger stone for an address it allows the overall text to be larger.
Note: Actual shapes may vary from photo. Stones designed with all capital letters will fit less characters per line.
