Before engraving the image on the stone, it must be retouched. Retouching is the most important component of successful work. The quality of retouching directly affects the result of engraving.

SAUNO company operates the International Center for Online Retouching. How does the retouch center work? You scan the original image and send it to the retouch center by email. One of our professional artists retouches the picture and we send it back to you in 24h. Thus, you get rid of the most time-consuming stage of work on the machine.

At your request, our artists can make changes to the portrait, make the monument design completely, prepare an inscription or separate elements (flowers, crosses, frames, etc.). During several years of work of the center, our retouching artists have accumulated a great experience, allowing you to quickly and accurately retouch the most complex images for processing. Our online image store has a huge selection of ready to engrave design elements.
