How is the personalization / etching added to the pavers or stones?

We use a process that uses a “mask” to create your permanent inscription. The open areas of the mask are blasted with aluminum oxide to create letter depth. Color is then added to the paver to provide a contrasted look.


How will the paver be delivered to the jobsite?

Your completed paver will be transported with all the other personalized pavers for this project directly to the Fairfax Library jobsite for installation.


Can I have a logo, special graphic, or font added to the etching design? 

No, the architects and project planners have created a uniformed design using only a specific font to achieve a unique and comfortable look and feel to the Fairfax Library project.


Can I adjust my design after placing the order?

Yes. You can adjust your design through the proofing process if necessary. Once approved the paver will go into production. We will be etching each paver on a per order basis as the orders are approved. No changes are possible once approved. Review your proofs carefully to ensure proper spelling and spacing.


Can I see how the paver will look before etching?

Yes. After completing your online order Etched In Stone will create a proof for your approval which will sent to you via email.


When will I see our finished paver?

“The schedule for the project will be available at www.marinlibrary.org/fairfax-garden .  You will receive updates on the project and an invitation to the ribbon-cutting ceremony. 


Can I determine where my paver will be placed?

The location of your paver will be determined by the installers and will be based on what works best for the overall design concept.
