Yes, we will always do our best to accommodate custom color combinations. We recommend choosing no more than three colors for any one piece. Please CONTACT US with questions about available colors and to discuss a custom color design.

Yes. While custom colors are easier to accommodate, custom shapes often require special tools and processes that may make them more complex. Our Studio Coordinator and artisan team will work with you on a quote for your specific piece. Custom requests can be made HERE.

Yes. We can engrave up to eight characters, free of charge, on the back or bottom of all full-sized memorials.  


We generally request one tablespoon for each memorial being created. Within the collection vessel, you will find a small bag with a line to indicate how much to fill it so that we have a sufficient amount.

We completely understand that the process could be challenging – and sometimes urns are difficult to open. We recommend asking a friend, family member, or your funeral home to help you.

Yes, all of our memorials can be created with pet ashes. We also have a sister company that makes handmade memorials specifically for pets:

The ashes appear as a white/grey ribbon in the piece.

Our entire process is tightly controlled. Once your collection vessel arrives, it never leaves the building. Each vessel is assigned a unique ID number, and that same number is engraved on the memorial at the start of the production process.

Yes, we often create single memorials to celebrate two different individuals.


We accept credit card payment through our website, or you can pay with a check mailed in with the collection vessel.


After you order your Celebration Memorial, a collection kit will be sent to you. For US orders, the kit includes a USPS shipping package specifically approved for ashes, a vessel with a collection bag inside, detailed instructions, and necessary forms. The shipping cost is $26.20, paid directly to your local post office. International orders receive the same collection kit, minus the USPS package. Your cost of shipping will depend on the parcel service you choose.

USPS Priority Mail packages are traceable and require our signature upon delivery. We will also contact you (normally via email) to let you know when your package has arrived at our studio.

Completed memorials are generally delivered 2-4 weeks after we have received your collection package, depending on the piece(s).

We provide free shipping to U.S. addresses via USPS Priority Mail. It will be expertly packaged to ensure it arrives in perfect condition and a signature of receipt will be required. International shipping is based on weight and varies by carrier.
