Doves: Stunning with navy and bru pewter, this urn has an array of doves engraved on the face of the urn, where you can also engrave the person’s name, birth and death date and a quote.
Butterflies: Fly high like a butterfly. This beautiful urn is a perfect choice for anyone who was a free spirit in life and will remain the same in your memory.
Motorcycle: If your loved one always wanted to ride into the sunset on their motorcycle, this is a great urn for them. A powerful motorcycle is engraved on the metal face with room for engravings. The base of this teardrop urn is black, making it a timeless classic that will honor your loved one.
Dragonflies: A green shell and golden engraving area make the dragonfly urn an immediate hit. The urn has a large space for engraving a message to remind you of your lost loved one.
Hearts: The person who passed on may be gone, but they’ve left a mark on your heart forever. Urns for human ashes often have heart designs as a way to remember the love the person gave to this world.
Roses: A shaded grey color is used on the urn’s exterior and adds an almost 3D effect to the piece. The engraved area is a light pink, just like a rose, and the roses are engraved with multiple sizes. Add your own saying and text to the engraving to customize the urn further.
2. Custom Photo UV Printing
UV printing allows us to offer one of the best ways to customize an urn. Urns for adult ashes – or kids – can feature an engraving that you choose from your own memories. You simply supply us with a photo that we will help enhance if necessary and then use our high end UV printing technology to apply a vibrant full color application to your memorial.
UV printing technology allows us to directly print every last detail of the photo onto the urn so that it:
Preserves the person’s memory right on the urn
Never misses a shadow or key detail
Adding a photo engraving is just the start of what our custom engraving offers. You can also have the person’s name, date of birth and death, sayings, quotes or anything else the person likes to the urn.
You can submit any photo that you like to us for engraving, but we do have a few recommendations to make the process even more special:
Choose an up-close photo
Look for vibrant colors and details
Pick a photo with the person laughing, showing joy or something else
Our design team will then take the photo, enhance it and bring a truly special engraving to life right on the urn’s surface.
3. Engraving on Cremation Jewelry
An ashes keepsake can also be engraved in addition to your metal urn. Our collection of jewelry includes pendants, bracelets and more. However, our TadBlu men’s cremation bracelets show the true beauty of engraving.
Urn jewelry is a way to unite with someone who has passed on to the other side and still hold a piece of them close to your heart.
You can have us engrave a small portion of the jewelry, adding the person’s:
Since the surface area of these items is smaller, your text must be succinct and small enough to fit in the space.
Cremation jewelry allows you to place a small portion of the person’s ashes into an interior chamber. The chamber is well hidden but offers a secure, tight fit to ensure that ashes never fall out of it. We offer men’s and women’s options along with engravings to truly make the item one-of-a-kind.
If you don’t prefer bracelets, we have a growing list of pendants and other items that you can choose from.
4. Double Sided Engraving
Do you want an urn that will tell your loved one’s story? Double sided engraving is the customization option for you, and we offer this option with our Embrace collection.
Doubled sided engraving allows you to add four lines of text on the front of the urn and five lines of text on the back. Of course, the front of the urn will also feature an engraved design.
The front and back engravings provide you with ample space to share:
Your loved one’s story
A beautiful memorial poem or quote
Front engravings are typically reserved for the loved one’s name, birth and death dates, and a few loving words. However, the beauty of a custom urn is that you don’t necessarily have to follow this trend. You can use this engraving space to say whatever you want.
What are the Text Limits for Front and Back Engravings?
Each line on the front engraving can contain up to 35 characters, for a total of 140 characters for all four lines (about 20-35 words).
The back text can contain up to 150 characters (about 21-38 words).
The Benefits of Double Sided Engraving
Double sided engraving offers many benefits over other customization options:
Greater personalization. Having five additional lines of text allows you to really personalize the urn and share your own unique message.
Tell your loved one’s story. It can be difficult to summarize your loved one’s life in just 3-4 lines, we want you to feel that you can tell as much about your loved one as possible. Double engraving provides you with more space to share their story.
Comfort in difficult times. Many people use this additional space to engrave prayers or memories, which can bring comfort while grieving their loved one’s loss.
To choose double sided engraving for an Embrace urn, click the “Personalize It” button and select “Double Sided” under options. You will be provided with text boxes for each side. You will also have the option to choose your preferred font.

With their bright blooms and hardy nature, tulips are one of the most beloved flowers on the planet. In fact, tulips even have their own dedicated festivals in many regions around the world. And like other flowers, tulips have different meanings. They can be associated with both joyful and somber occasions.
Let’s dive deeper into tulip symbolism, meanings and the history of this bloom that once crashed the markets in Europe.
More than half of U.S. households have at least one pet. For most, pets become members of the family and are adored for their unconditional love. Their loss can be just as devastating as losing a human family member.
