Urn Customization Options

An urn is both practical and personal. Many people choose a cremation urn for their loved one to serve as a lasting memorial and family heirloom, so it makes sense to take a few simple additional steps to personalize the urn with an inscription or other customization. We offer several unique ways you can customize the cremation urn of your choice.

Custom laser engraved inscriptions

Nearly all of our wood urns can be customized by laser engraving into the surface of the urn. Most inscriptions include information such as name (or names, for our companion urns), dates, quotes, Bible verses, a line or two from a poem, and personal inscriptions:

Many of our granite, marble, and metal urns can be engraved into the surface as well.

Custom laser engraved name plates

Some of our urns provide the option to add a custom engraved name plate. These provide space for name and dates, and often an additional line or two as well. Some can even include a military service emblem:

Custom kiln-fired inscriptions for ceramic urns

Many of our ceramic urns can be personalized with an inscription permanently fired on to the surface of the memorial. Here is a sample pet urn inscription:

Urn appliques

Another way to customize your memorial is by using an applique. We offer many cremation urn appliques which affix to a flat surface on an urn. These beautiful and varied decorative accents are sold and shipped separately, so you can even purchase one for an urn you already own! These can be attached to any wood, metal, or marble urn with a flat surface of the appropriate size.

Custom engraved photo urns

We can engrave a photograph of your loved one directly onto a wood or granite urn. These photo urns include several lines of personalized inscription along with the engraving of the photo in the total cost of the urn.
