Stone Engraved Signs - Help

Hi All,

I once saw a website for a person that makes engraved signs of a Budo nature using various types of stone. The stones were thin, and adopted a scroll-like design, as the artist used Kanji to write various words and/or phrases. Does anyone know the site for this and/or any clues to finding it again. I've googled everything I could think of and have come up with nothing.

Please help.
thanks,

Jerome,

Thanks so much for the hint - unfortunately, I don't have any of those lying around. :-(

This site looks like they can do any graphic or picture. If you have the kanji, they can do a mock up for you.
