Engraving on Cremation Urns

by Alex Johnson September 16, 2018 2 min read

 

Your decision on what to write on an urn depends on the urn you choose. Not all cremation urns can be engraved, so select the urn wisely if you wish to place words on it. Often wood urns, metal urns, and brass urns are easily engraved. An urn that can be engraved will have parameters for this inscription. Some urns only have room for a person's name along with birth and death dates. Others have space for a short phrase, verse, a special tribute or some artwork such as Wings of Hope. You will have to work within set guidelines, which means there will be a word count for each line. Many urns have space for three lines of text, with perhaps forty characters on each line.

 

We all know a person's name has a unique meaning and simply saying a loved one's name is a mark of adoration. Similarly, placing the name and life dates of your beloved is a beautiful reminder of the importance of his or her life. The engraving is like a grace note; a silent song etched onto the cremation urn. It can be challenging to decide on a verse. Often an urn company has a small selection of Bible verses or poems to choose from. Get urns offer a wide variety of verses and poems. Our staff can help you choose one that is perfect for your loved one. Think about your beloved as you read each choice. What words remind you of your loved one? Also ask yourself, which lines comfort you most? If you still can't choose a verse, ask friends and family for help. Some families have engraved favorite phrases to remind them of the laughter they all once shared.

If you want to compose your own special tribute or verse, give yourself enough time to complete this task. Make a list of the words that remind you of your loved one, writing down passions, character traits, past times, and roles such as father, brother, uncle, or friend. The words you decided on do not need to rhyme they just need to speak to you and remind you of your beloved.

Get Urns offers a vast collection of engravable cremation urns in a wide variety of materials, sizes, and styles including cremation jewelry, Embrace cremation urns, and even pet urns which can be engraved with pet-friendly designs such as paw prints. Standard materials used to make engravable cremation urns include metal or brass cremation urns, along with wood urns, and marble or stone urns. Texts can be directly engraved on these urns. Get Urns also offers medallions that can be used as another option to personalize an urn. The text is engraved on a gold or silver medallion that can be applied by a string around the urn.
