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.”
