Why Offer Laser Engraved Personalized Urns?

Laser Engraved Urn

With a large portion of your customers choosing cremation combined with the rising trend of personalized goods and services, your customers are now expecting, it is important for your business to offer products to satisfy both of these rising demands. Why not do that with laser engraved personalized urns?

You can look at cremation as a low cost, low profit, bottom of the line sale, or you can take advantage of it and turn it into a high-profit opportunity. Not all customers opting for cremation do so because of the cost. Often times, families don’t purchase an urn because they simply don’t see anything that they like that reflects their loved one.

What if you could offer a laser engraved personalized urn for each and every one of your customers opting for cremation? An urn that reflected their life, memories, and all of the unique characteristics that made them the person they were? AP Lazer provides you the ability to do just that by adding photos, text, and other artwork to the urns you are already stocking.

Offering laser engraved personalized urns will set you apart from your competitors, add a high level of customer satisfaction to your services, and can add additional profit to your cremation sales. Don’t just offer cremation, specialize in cremation by turning it into a high revenue opportunity that will delight your customers one by one.

What Types of Urns can be Engraved?

Today’s urns are most commonly made of metals such as brass and alloy, wood, (oak, pine, bamboo, and walnut just to name a few) granite, glass, wood, and marble, all of which can be permanently marked with a laser engraver. AP Lazer can also engrave on less common urn materials such as powder-coated metals, leather, rubber, and much more.

Profit Capabilities

Offering laser engraved personalized urns can add revenue to your cremation sales on multiple levels. A laser engraving on an an urn can add anywhere from $50-$200 to a cremation sale. Better yet – you can use a personalized laser engraving to entice those customers who wouldn’t normally purchase an urn at all. Display a variety of laser engraved urns in your showroom and your customers will have a hard time turning down the opportunity to honor their loved one.

Matthew Buxton, Funeral Director at  Buxton & Bass Okeechobee Funeral Home and Crematory states:

“In most cases I will add a $65 engraving charge to an urn. Sometimes, I add a complimentary engraving to an urn purchase. By doing that, I am selling more urns. I had a family that originally was going with a cardboard minimum container and when I offered the engraving at no charge, the decided to go with a $325 MDF urn that I pay about $40 for. That is extra money that I otherwise would not have been able to make.”

Laser Engraved Urn Designs

There are many design options for personalization on an urn. 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 urn honoring the legacy of a life once lived

    Many of the funeral homes we work with use laser engraved urns and they tell us that the families of the deceased love the detail that laser engraving offers. We haven’t seen any of the urns containing images, although the text is always beautifully styled.
