  • Can I fly with a memorial urn and cremated remains?

    The Transportation Security Administration says: “We understand how painful losing a loved one is and we treat crematory remains with respect. Some airlines do not allow cremated remains as checked baggage, so please check with your airline to learn more about possible restrictions. “Under no circumstances will a Transportation Security Officer (TSO) open a crematory container. To facilitate screening, we suggest that you purchase a temporary or permanent crematory container made of a lighter weight material, such as wood or plastic. If the container is made of a material that generates an opaque image, the TSO will not be able to clearly determine what is inside the container and the container will not be permitted. “Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns. The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow any items on the plane.” However, you are permitted to transport empty cremation urns, if the lid can be removed and the inside of the urn inspected.
  • Can I ship remains?

    Yes, you can . However, only the United States Postal Service will accept cremated remains for shipping. UPS, Federal Express, and DHL will not knowingly transport cremated remains because they are irreplaceable, and cannot be insured. UPS, FedEx and DHL will accept empty cremation urns for shipment, but not an urn holding ashes.

    Beautiful. We have an in-house team of engraver with extensive years of experience, who deeply care about producing the top-notch results you are looking for. We receive a lot of compliments regarding our engraving, you can be reassured that you are in good hands.
  • How are urns sealed?

    Metal urns open and close with a threaded lid, and most can be permanently sealed with a clear adhesive, or metal-to-metal glue. Many wooden urns are sealed with a removable panel on the bottom which is secured by screws.
  • What is a cubic inch?

    A cubic inch is a standard unit of measurement used to measure volume. A cubic inch is the volume of a cube with each side measuring one inch in length. In the cremation industry, the amount of ashes that each urn holds is measured in cubic inches.

  • What size urn should I buy?

    Urns are sold by size, measured by the amount of ashes that each urn holds in cubic inches. One pound of pet weight equals one cubic inch of remains. Therefore, if your loved one weighed 60 pounds you will need an urn that will hold at least 60 cubic inches. Standard individual cremation urns are designed to hold 200 cubic inches of remains. The size of each urn in cubic inches is listed with the item’s description. Use the filters on the left of our collections page to refine your results based on weight.
