Selecting the correct size

Urns come in as many sizes and shapes as people or pets

Enter your loved one's approximate weight to determine the correct urn size.

Your loved one's weight

(in pounds)

Minimum urn capacity

(in cubic inches)

For every one pound of body weight, allow about 1 cubic inch capacity (for example, your 150 pound loved one will need an urn with a minimum capacity of 150 cubic inches). Remember, an urn can only be too small - if you're not sure, it's better to choose a larger urn.

Art pieces are variable


Our memorial urns and keepsakes are works of art that are generally crafted by hand. As such, volume capacity varies slightly for each piece. The volume measurements we provide for each piece are estimates only, and we cannot guarantee the exact capacity of each urn.


Our urns come in a range of beautiful colors ― from bright, iridescent hues to muted tones. When you place your order, keep in mind that the actual colors of your urn may vary slightly from the photo you see on your screen, depending on your computer monitor’s color settings.


As works of art, the tops of each urn vary in fit, but every one of our beautiful urns can be sealed using industrial glue. Our wooden urns have tighter, more form-fitting lids than our urns made of other materials, such as ceramic.


Our urns and keepsakes are art pieces designed to honor and celebrate your loved one. As art pieces, they are not water proof. If your urn or keepsake is on display, please be sure to keep it dry and away from water to ensure the integrity of the vessel.

Custom designs

Our artists will take great care to design an urn based on the specifications in your sketches, but as works of art, there may be some slight differences.

While we do our best to meet your shipping needs, please keep in mind that Federal Express, our shipping carrier, does not serve every location with overnight delivery. Your physical delivery address and zip code determine whether overnight shipping is available to you.

If Federal Express does not offer overnight shipping in your area and that’s what you request during checkout, we will contact you after you place your order. Or, you are welcome to call us before you place your order, and we can check with Federal Express.

While rare, there are some events that could affect the timing of your delivery which are outside our control, including severe weather (hurricanes, blizzards, etc.) or the grounding of airplanes. We appreciate your understanding.
