Portrait Engraving

Passages® now offers portrait engraving on certain engravable products. We can take a treasured photo of your loved one and turn it into a two-tone, engravable image that allows you to bring a new level of personalization to a biodegradable or scattering urn. Our graphic designers will always work to make sure that you are satisfied with the outcome of any engraving by providing a proof before beginning work and before any payment is needed.

Most of our products can be customized with engraved names, dates, meaningful phrases, or artwork so you can offer your families that added personal touch.  Whole families can be involved – offer to personalize several mini Journey Earthurns for all the children and grandchildren to participate in a water burial to help them feel more connected and go a long way toward healing.

I see value in having personalization and being able to see and touch the name. That’s what I sell…value and meaning. I first saw the engraving at a Funeral Director’s Convention in Ohio and loved it.

Passages® eco-friendly funeral products give families the opportunity to honor a loved one after their passing with a smaller environmental footprint. We believe that, especially when a person valued sustainability during their life, it is important to have the option for a greener end-of-life ritual. Whether a family chooses to bury or cremate, our caskets and carriers are dignified and suitable to do so in an eco-friendly manner. If cremation is chosen, our biodegradable urns offer a variety of options for ceremonies that return the cremated remains to the earth.

Gift tree tubesPassages suggests offering memorial trees as the perfect complement to any biodegradable urn or scattering tube. Whether it is planted where the cremated remains of a loved one are scattered or buried, or in your garden at home, the trees provide a lasting and living memorial. As part of The Natural Choice® Memorial Tree Program, a numbered certificate can be used to redeem a 12” tree sapling that is appropriate to your climate and guaranteed for a year to grow. Read more about the program and how it works.

Simply complete the form on our website, including your certificate number, and a tree will be mailed to the address you provide. Memorial trees are a wonderful way to remember a loved one that, if you choose, can grow from the same soil in which a loved one’s remains were laid to rest. Because families receive a sapling instead of seeds, the hardest part of the tree’s life has passed and there is no worry of a seed not germinating. 

Each Passages adult casket comes with a free Memorial Tree Certificate that can be redeemed for a live tree. 

Memorial Petals are also available and are a perfect addition to a burial at sea or other ceremonies.
