Did you ever have to regrind a headstone, because of mistype, or a customer's dissatisfaction with text layout? Never more with Headstone Designer.



Headstone Designer is a plugin for CorelDRAW designated for stonemasoners, who sandblast headstones using foil cut on a ploter. All you need is to choose a headstone and text and the Headstone Designer will format your text and arrange the headstone. You can also create a color visualization of a headstone, which looks as real. All of this is done so fast, that you can design a headstone in front of your customer. Therefore, customers can see, how the headstone will look like, and they can sign correctness of text and layout. Because the text can be cut directly on a ploter, you will eliminate the chance of mistype or a customer's dissatisfaction. With Headstone Designer, creating texts on a headstone is easy and fast. Moreover, your headstones will always look professionally.
