Production Process and Turnaround Time - 4-6 weeks after proof approval
Step 1. Layout and Proof Creation
A designer will organize your text and artwork and create a digital proof for you in approximately 1-3 business days. The proof is then sent to you via email for your review and approval.
Step 2. Production and Casting of the Bronze Marker
Once you approve the proof via reply email, your marker artwork will be converted to a higher resolution and sent to the foundry for production and casting. Production time can vary but is generally 4-6 weeks. Your finished cast bronze marker is then shipped to you from the foundry in southern California.
What is casting?
A mold of sand or clay is created from the digital artwork. Molten bronze is then poured into the cast, cooled and solidified. The result is one-piece bronze marker that is then painted with special paints, finished, and shipped.
