All of our Personalized Photo Urns open from the bottom but they would make a great keepsake box! Simply gently place the urn with the top side down and layer the items you'd like inside. Reattach the base and turn back over.

Can two photos be put on a plaque?  I have a picture of my spouse and my dog and I'd really like them both on there.

Absolutely!  We can place two images on a photo plate with no problem!  Simply email us at sales@evrmemories.com and reference your order number.  Include both images in the email as well as any cropping instructions. We can remove backgrounds, add multiple images and so much more!

We can customize the background to a picture that you have at home, add additional custom text or virtually anything you'd like.

I love how it looks like a painting!  Is the photo given an oil painting texture with the background?

Yes.  The photo will have the same texture and appearance as the background.  This allows you to actually feel the image with your fingertips. Also, the image will be slightly transparent so that you can see the background through the image of your loved one.

I'm worried about the plaque getting damaged because I have a lot of windows and direct sunlight.  How durable is the plaque? Will it fade?

The plaque is very durable and will not fade over time.  We do recommend cleaning with a dry lint free cloth and keeping out of direct sunlight as direct sun can compromise the overall integrity of the urn.

I don’t like your background pics and don't really 'connect' with any of them. Can I provide my own?

We completely understand and encourage our customers to make their memorial personalized photo urn selection 'their own'! Images or pictures that you feel an emotional connection with make the best backgrounds!  Simply email us at sales@evrmemories.com and reference your order number in the subject line.  Be sure to include the digital image you would like to use as the background as well as any particular part of the photo that you would like us to focus on for the background.

The walnut finish is too dark for my decor.  Do the wood cremation urns come in any other color?

The funeral photo urns are available with a walnut finish but we can offer other options in some instances.  The photo engraved plate on the front allows for families to add color and texture to the urn, personalizing it to reflect the lifestyle of their loved one. If you're looking for a different color finish for the exterior of the photo memorial urn, call us at 1-877-723-4242 or send us an email at sales@evrmemories.com with your request.

All of my photos are old, will they work for these plaques?

In most cases, yes. We can do black and white pictures, sepia tones and so much more. If for some reason the image you uploaded will not work, our customer service representative will contact you immediately.

I'd really like to see the photo engraved plaque and make sure it's what I wanted before you send it.  Can I request a proof?

You bet - we are more than happy to send you a proof!  Simply add your request in the comments section of your order or send us an email at sales@evrmemories.com and reference your order number with your request.

I can't tell from the picture what the plaque is made of.  Is the plaque metal or plastic?

The photo plaque is made of metal and the personalized photo plaque sits down into the surface of the urn.

I don't have any big pictures - just 4 x 6 sized and wallets.  How large of a photo do you need?

We understand that as some of our favorite pictures are the ones we display on the smaller size or carry with us in our wallets. The larger the better but we can even make smaller photos work.  A wallet sized scanned image would be the smallest in most cases.

I can't find any photo plaques that will hold all the text I want.  Can you have more than 3 lines of engraving?

In many cases we can add more engraving than what is shown.  Give us a call at 1-877-723-4242 or email us at sales@evrmemories.com and reference the plate that you would like to add additional engraving to. More text does take up more space on the front of the plaque but we can size it and place it in a way that maximizes the words and the background image.

I don't see where I can select my font.  Can you have script or block font?

Different fonts are available upon request.  Contact us at 1-877-723-4242 or sales@evrmemories.com for more information. We do have different font selections that we can offer should a customer have a preference other than what is shown.

There are some people in the photo I want to use that I don't want on the personalized plaque.  Can you crop out the background of my photo?

Yes, we remove the background from all photos, allowing your loved one to be the focal point. Personalized Photo Cremation Urns are meant to be a direct reflection of your loved one and that emotional connection you shared and we will go the extra mile to make sure your photo plaque is exactly as you want.

I want my kids on the plaque as well as their nana.  Can you add anything to the background?

We can add basically anything to the background of the photo plate. Images of loved ones, pets, you name it. We can completely customize the background of the plate.

I just lost my beloved black lab, Gunner.  Could you do one for a dog?

All of our Personalized Photo Urns can be used to store the ashes of a child, an adult or a pet. We can do a background that reminds you of your pup as well as put an image of your dog on the front. Customize the text with words such as 'Bestest Boy' or whatever words remind you of your pet.

I need to get a smaller urn that what you're showing.  Could you do one for a keepsake urn?

Smaller Personalized Photo Urns will be available very soon and those smaller urns will be child sized and pet sized.  Urns that small can also be used as a keepsake urn. You can keep checking the site or call us at 1-877-723-4242 or email us at sales@evrmemories.com. We will try to find a way to make it happen now!

The plaques are so beautiful I don't want to damage them.  How do you care for the photo once it is on the urn?

No worries! The plates are made of metal and are highly durable. Periodic dusting using a dry lint free cloth is all that is necessary to keep your photo plate looking brand new. We also suggest not using harsh cleaners and keeping the personalized burial urn out of direct sunlight.

I can't figure out how you combine the background with the picture!  How is the photo attached?

The photo is actually integrated into the background and printed onto the plate.  The image will be slightly transparent which allows for the background to be slightly visible through the image of your loved one. As an added bonus, the image has the look and feel of an oil painting and that same texture is on the image of your loved one.

I love the beauty of black and white.  Do these come in black and white?

Yes, we can make your photo plate in black and white, sepia tones and full color. This lets you customize your cremation photo urn to your exact specifications and increases the emotional value of the urn.

Can you make these for two people?  I'd like to have one made for me and my husband.

I need an urn in a matter of days.  How soon do they ship?

We understand that sometimes time is of the essence. Because all the photo plates are designed and manufactured in house, we can actually ship within a couple of hours of receiving your order.

In the pictures the urns look like they have texture.  Can I “feel” the texture on the print?

Yes you can!  The texture has the look and feel of an oil painting and being able to feel the features of the plate, the actual picture - increases the emotional value.

I really love the beauty of cherry hardwood.  Can you build the wood out of different wood?
