Assessment and evaluation

We work with our customers to define their needs, offer ideas based on years of experience and to ensure the outcome reflects the vision that each client has in mind. We mutually determine a customized product that meets the clients’ time frame and budget. If you would like to have information specific to your project contact us today.

Design concepts

Our graphic designers know what it takes to achieve the best quality image on granite. We manipulate those images to achieve scale, 3D perspective and apply the proper tonal values for just the right effect. We can help a client bring their own design idea to a realization, work with their existing plans, or offer a concept that suits their needs from our numerous design possibilities.

Inspection of stone

At Picture This On Granite, our process is different and unique. We select, test and certify our granite to insure only the clearest images are achieved. This is known as PG Certified Granite®.  We work with black granite because it is recognized as a high-end natural substrate by architects and designers, it is a green product and provides the best contrast quality for the creation of images and/or text.

Laser etching quality

Picture This on Granite uses Co2 lasers controlled by a CNC machine, to laser etch high-definition images on granite using a proprietary process known as PGHD®. We specifically measure and control variables such as stone temperature and 16 other measurable variables, to ensure only the highest quality results. Unique parameters are specific to each project, which enables us to control the entire laser etching process, obtaining unsurpassed results.

Color on granite

High-resolution laser etched images look even better in color. Color treatment is suitable for indoor applications, however we do not suggest it for outdoor applications as the color has a tendency to fade. This being said, we triple seal our colored and non colored etched images to protect them from the elements. We also provide a prescribed follow up maintenance program. Review our colored granite library for images and applications available.

Shipping, crating and packaging

We carefully package and crate all of our products to ensure their safe arrival to their intended destinations. Our 6000 square foot fully equipped facility is located a half mile from the U.S. Vermont border. This permits us to ship daily to our U.S. clients. We have a track record of not just promising but delivering quality, on time, personalized granite.
