Throughout life, people chose products and objects which they connect to. We chose a style and design which makes us feel comfortable about how we feel we are portrayed to society. So why shouldn’t there be an option to choose and even create an item which portrays us in death? A coffin is an element to a funeral and it plays a large role in onlookers emotion when they see it. A personalised coffin is one of the best options available to represent a loved one and determine the overall feel of a funeral.
Options to what goes on personalised coffins?
So what options do you have when picking a coffin which you want to personalise? Well, it is really up to your imagination. The graphics opportunities are limitless and what medium you choose to use are plenty. However, the most popular ways to personalise a coffin are through:
- Written messages of love and memories, poems, stories on coffin
- Some people are fans of sports clubs and choose to place their club themes on a coffin
- National identity graphics
- Hobbies, and activities – favourite animals, sport, natural landscapes
- Sometimes people even choose humourous themes for their coffin.
How do people react to a personalised coffin?
We have found many people’s attitude and emotion change dramatically when they see a personalised coffin. Many onlookers smile and understand exactly why the graphics on a coffin were chosen. This highlights the personal touch which these coffins tend to achieve. This is done through a colour, an image, or just a few words. These elements have the power to connect directly with family and friends.
I want a totally crazy and amazing coffin
Some requests that we receive are very creative, and as much as we want to develop these ideas the funeral industry does have its limitations. The Australian funeral industry has safety, environmental, practical, and health guidelines we need to design within. Cremation funerals are often stricter, due to the fact that during a cremation the entire coffin and casket are cremated with the deceased. Sydney Coffins is an innovative memorial retail company which is proud to provide unique and high-quality products to the Australians. If you have an idea for personalised coffins that we do not sell we would love to hear about it and make that dream come true while staying within the lines of the Australian Funeral Industry.
