Wood - Engraving & Phrase of Endearment

Many wooden cremation urns are available with personalized inscriptions. An epitaph or short phrase of endearment may be engraved directly on the smooth surface of a cremation urn. We use modern laser engraving so highly detailed images often engrave very well depending upon the grain and coloring of the wood. However, engraving is not available on highly hand carved wood cremation urns such as the Laurel, the carved wood cremation urns or the mahogany cremation urns such as the Memories. You may be able to have your local engraver personalize the Diamond or the Heirloom.
Maple wood offers the best wood for engraving. The evenly spaced smooth regular grain and the naturally light color of the wood show the best contrast. Cherry wood is a close second. Cherry is often a naturally light colored wood but it will darken over time for warm deep feel. Large text such as Name and Dates can be easily engraved in most oak. However, the dark irregular grain which gives oak its character also prevent engraving detailed images. Photographic images will need to be hand touched by an artist prior to engraving. The best results come from as detailed an image as possible (or as large a file as possible).
Engraving your wood cremation urn will require and additional 2-3 days prior to shipping. The standard price for NAME, DOB & DOD includes up to 50 characters. The standard price for Phrase of Endearment, NAME, DOB & DOD includes up to 75 characters. Of course, on cremation urns with a smooth surface much longer epitaphs can been engraved. For details including pricing on longer phrases of endearment, eulogies, poems, songs, verses, languages other than English, and characters other than the English alphabet please contact us.
We offer block and script engraved font styles. Unless otherwise specified we will engrave with block lettering.
Orders received with engraving information such as Name, DOB and or DOD but without payment may be delayed up to 2 business days while our office attempts contact via e-mail. If we are unable to make contact we will ship your cremation urn without engraving.
