Understanding The Growing Trend In Custom Caskets

At CasketWraps.com, we understand the importance of creating a custom casket for a loved one. Custom caskets are a great way to honor and personalize a memorial, and have become a growing trend in the funeral industry. For many, funerals are a huge part of the grieving process, and families are looking for ways to create a service that is personalized and meaningful. 

The National Funeral Directions Association’s website, recognizes custom caskets and casket personalization as a growing trend in their business. 

Today, funeral service consumers are planning funeral services that are as unique as the person who died. The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique services that reflect the hobbies, passions and interests of someone who has died. Through personalization, funeral services can be more meaningful. Funeral directors can offer ideas on how families can personalize their loved one’s funeral and are open to family suggestions and creativity. NFDA encourages all funeral service consumers to discuss their ideas with the funeral director to ensure an individualized ceremony fitting of the person who died.” You can find more on the NFDA website and the various funeral trends that they see here: http://www.nfda.org/news/trends-in-funeral-service

At CasketWraps.com, we have worked to streamline this process of creating a custom casket or personalized casket, by designing a catalog of designs to use for your memorial. Or, you can create a fully custom wrap by designing your very own concept all together. Please note that it will take a few days longer to create your own fully custom casket design. 

When the time comes to determine the best option for your custom casket, the NFDA provides a list of questions to help you, the family or friends, to determine what design or direction is best for you.

  • What could your loved one do better than anyone else?
  • When you think of your loved one, what do you think of?
  • What were your loved one’s hobbies or special interests?
  • What were some of your fondest memories of your loved one?
  • What was your loved one passionate about?

These questions can help you determine the best design or personalization for your custom casket, and truly create a lasting tribute for your loved one.
