An Awesome Custom Urn Review:

"When I walked into the room the day of my parents Memorial Service I was absolutely speechless. When I viewed their urn up close the writing was dominant and the picture faint. When I saw it from a distance the picture looked like it was glowing and my parents were right there with us. I could not of asked for anything to be so unbelievable. It was just perfect!"

Lots of Recent Custom Urn Requests:

We have had other requests like: "We are looking for an urn for my Grandfather that would have an old steam train on top, can you make an urn like that?"

"Can you make an ashtray urn, we are all smokers and would love to each have one."

"My mother loved clowns, can you make an urn in the shape of a clown."

"We want an urn in the shape of a China Takeout Box, with Made in China on the bottom, can you do that? My Mom would be so happy if she could see this before she passes."

How Do I Start?

What is important in creating the right size custom urn, is to have the height and weight of the person or get the area of cubic inches of cremains. The price range is important too, we make 3D at a much higher price, due to the technology and time it takes to make them. But we can create a wood printed, laser engraved or sublimated urn for much less time and money. We work toward our custom urns to be long-lasting, and offer a beautiful presentation. We hope our urns help in the grieving and healing process of losing your loved one. We do believe that the creation of a one-of-a-kind custom urn lightens the pain of your loss. For more information about custom urns or any type of photo urns, please contact our knowledgeable staff directly at (800) 757-3488.
