Going out in style – why a personalised casket really is the way to go!
Closed or open casket, we get one last chance to leave a lasting impression, but will that casket really reflect you and what you cared about?
Caskets are an essential part of a funeral arrangement, but why do they all have to look the same? A personal touch really does say so much.
Caskets have traditionally only been available in quite standardised designs and colour palettes with little or no option to personally customise. However, increasingly, families are moving away from these traditional style coffins and opting for more colourful and completely personalised options.
Personalised caskets are a reasonably new concept and have been trending in popularity over the recent years. A personalised casket allows you to create a final tribute for your loved one for the last time. A personalised casket can help you pay your respects to your loved one, uniquely and creatively.
A casket is an essential element to a funeral and it can create a lot of emotion when it is seen. A personalised casket has a gentler and less confronting aesthetic compared to traditional timber veneer coffins. For this reason alone, it is easy to understand why a personalised casket can be a more meaningful choice for a funeral arrangement
How Can You Customise a Personalised Casket?
A personalised casket is usually presented blank with the ability for family members and friends to customise it according to their loved ones personal preferences.
Cardboard Caskets are an excellent choice for this as they are essentially a blank canvas for those to honour their loved one in their own special way. It’s entirely up to you with how creative you want to be, the options are endless.
There are lots of different mediums to personalise a cardboard casket, such as paints, crayons, and markers and making drawings on the casket. Some people paste images (using non toxic glue) of their loved ones on the casket to remember the wonderful times they spent together. You can also include special written messages from friends and family.

Why Do People Opt For a Personalised Casket?
A personalised casket allows family and friends to create memories for the last time. Expressing their own grief for the deceased can be very healing and cathartic in helping family members through the grieving process.
Your loved one who has passed away might not be there to witness the funeral, but you will be at peace knowing that you did something special for them. A personalised casket adds significant value to a funeral and makes the final send-off special and heartwarming. Imagine how you would feel if you were given a funeral that included a personalised coffin instead of a plain, old brown coffin? What would you rather?
