Offering a Laser Engraved Casket

Why Offer a Laser Engraved Casket?

Life is not the process of accumulating wealth, but a journey of collecting memories. Life ends when death occurs, however, life’s beautifully written story can be relived when personalization is integrated into not just a funeral service, but a casket and forever memorial. Adding a completely personalized laser engraving to a casket allows families to truly reflect the life of their loved one. When you offer a laser engraved casket, the personalization options are endless. Nearly any piece of artwork, text, bible verses, song lyrics, etc. can be permanently marked on a casket. Laser engravings will set you apart from your competitors, add a high level of customer satisfaction to your services, and can add more profit to your casket sales.

 What Casket Materials can be Engraved?

Laser Engraved Casket

Today’s caskets are most commonly made of wood, (oak, pine, bamboo, and walnut just to name a few) steel, and metal, along with the new kids on the block: acrylic, wool, and even cloth covered. The versatility of a laser engraving machine provides you the ability to mark all of these materials with ease. AP Lazer’s open architecture creates the perfect set up to engrave large bulky items like caskets.

Profit Capabilities

Until now, a laser engraved casket in the funeral industry has been uncharted territory. Traditional “boxed up” laser machines don’t have the capacity to engrave large items such as a casket due to their size and weight restrictions. With personalization on the rise and the introduction of AP Lazer into the industry, funeral homes are now able to add a minimum of 10% to each of their casket sales when offering a laser engraved casket. Some funeral homes are adding laser engravings as a value-added service, thus selling more caskets. Selling a $400 engraving just twice a month will pay the monthly financing cost of the AP Lazer most recommended for funeral homes.

There are many design options for personalization on a casket. Getting to know your family and learning about their loved one will help determine what kind of artwork they may like. Most everybody is passionate about something whether it be their religion, music, sports, family, animals, or even skydiving – there is artwork out there to capture any interest. Add the names and dates and you can come up with a uniquely personalized casket honoring the legacy of a life once lived. Any additional engravings are pure profit.
