Elberton welcomes visitors to the Granite Capital for the Elberton Granite Association's Annual Retailer's Monument Course.
While in Elberton students learn about quarrying, production techniques, designing and counseling/selling. At Design Mart students are able to check out sales books and sales pamphlets as well as electronic sales aids such as web site construction and hosting, and demo Design Mart's Online Catalog & Monument Designer. Students watch and ask questions as a monument is designed and sent to students' phones. When they return home they are able to open the new monument design directly in their CAD and stencil cutting systems.
Design Mart wraps up with a tour of Elberton's historic Elmhurst Cemetery, where Mike Fernandez leads a walking tour related to monument design and symbolism.
Retail students from a previous class watching a demo of the Online Designer & Catalog, followed by questions and answers.
Retailers travel from all over the US to participate in EGA courses, and this year's class is expected to be a large one. We are happy that these retailers choose to invest in their own education, and are confident their new knowledge will help both their customers and their businesses. We look forward to seeing you!
