Urn Garden is one of the few companies that offers engraving on the cloisonne urns. Even the double size cloisonne urns can be personalized. Engraving adds a couple of extra days to the transit time, depending on the work load. To ensure accuracy, we email a proof for final approval before production begins.
Personalizing the urn is a good idea for identifying the remains as well as planning for the future. Sometimes families are uncomfortable with the idea, perhaps they plan to keep the urn in the home and the nice thing about cloisonne is that it’s decorative enough without calling attention to the fact that it contains someone’s ashes. Sometimes the survivors don’t want to be reminded, they don’t want to see the container marked with their loved one’s name or date of death. It’s a personal choice, of course, but still an important consideration for the future of the urn. What is the plan after the caretaker passes? It’s a good way to not only identify and personalize, it also is protection from possibly being placed in an estate sale or thrift shop at a later date….
