We can create custom cremation urns from any of the stones we carry. We do not create custom cremation urns from wood. You can view some examples on our gallery page. For any custom inquiry, please use our contact form to send us a message describing what you're looking for and we'll get back to you or call us at 800-559-7321.
We often fill requests for special sizes to fit a niche in a columbarium. A columbarium is a wall usually in a cemetery or crematory which has slots (niches) into which urns are placed. There seem to be as many sizes of niches in the US as there are columbariums. This is the main reason we have to build so many custom sized urns.
Answer: That is like asking how high is high. It all depends on what you want for a custom cremation urn. What size, material, etching, painting, single, double or companion? After we get that information we can quote a price.
We start with 12 x 12 tiles. If you order an 8 x 8 x 11 urn, we end up using 6 tiles to make the urn and throw the excess stone away. If you were to order an urn that was 6 x 6 x 11 we would only need to use 4 tiles and there'd be very little waste in comparison.
You should be able to determine general comparative pricing by considering the stone, how difficult it is to cut, and how many tiles will be needed to make the urn. Then consider the add-ons of art, etching, or photo transfer. Most custom cremation urns we make are generally not too far out of line with the pricing of similar urns you may find in our regular selection here on the web site.
The best thing to do is get an idea of what you want, and then call us at 1-800-559-7321 to discuss it. We'll be able to explain the options and get you a quote.
Hand Etched and Hand Painted. We create many custom illustrations for our clients. We are happy to expand on one of our current designs or work up something unique for you. Hand etched and painted images are available on our absolute black granite only. Here you can view some of the custom urns. There is a charge of $35 for custom etching on an urn.
Engraving. We can laser engrave on any of our stones EXCEPT SLATE. The slate urns have an uneven (natural) finish and don't engrave well because the surface is not perfectly flat. We can laser engrave on all of our wood urns.
Military and other service emblems. We offer laser engraved service emblems for Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard as well as other service emblems such as Rotary and Eastern Star. Please contact us for additional details.
Engraving on multiple faces is possible. There is a charge of $40 per face for engraving.
Photo Transfer. We make use of a printing process to apply images—photos or artwork—onto our white stones only. As the printing ink is transparent, it will not read on the dark stones. There is an additional charge of $75 for each photo transfer on an urn.
Stained Glass. We do not offer custom stained glass.
Our single style wood and plain stone urns are almost always in stock and if there is no engraving we ship the same or the next business day. Single style etched-and-painted urns are also usually in stock and will ship the same day or the next if no engraving is required. Double style, Combination style, and Custom size cremation urns are not in stock. Custom Etching and Photo Transfer urns will require extra time.
