3 Reasons Why You Might Want A Custom Casket For Your Funeral

It's no secret that no one likes thinking about death. But if you are getting up there in age, you owe it to your family to have at least some plans in place for the day you pass on. But another way to think about it is that your funeral is also your last opportunity to make a statement about yourself. That's one of the reasons why more and more people are going with custom caskets. Here are three reasons why a custom casket might be right for you.

You're a Die Hard Sports Fan

Pardon the pun, but if you are indeed a "diehard" about a certain sports team, going out with a casket that is designed with your team logo or colors is the perfect finishing touch to a life spent dedicated to sports. You could even have a themed funeral and have all of the visitors wear a jersey of the team when they come to pay their last respects. Heck, you could even ask the funeral home to dress up your body in a jersey and cap as well. 

You Want to Remind People Of Your Favorite Hobbies

So if you're not a big sports fan, what else can get get put on your casket? Well, honestly, just about anything. If you were a big hunter, maybe a casket with a few deer painted on it would be a nice touch. Were you a golfing fanatic? Design a casket with the tee on one end and flag and hole on the other. Was your hobby actually just spoiling the heck out of every dog you ever owned? Get pictures of your favorite pets from throughout your life printed right onto the casket.

You Want to Cheer Everyone Up

Whether you go with a sports logo, a picture of your favorite hobby, or some other random idea, having a custom casket at your funeral will at the very least lighten the mood. It's hard to keep a straight face if you walk in and see a casket that looks significantly different than what you expected. Your casket will likely be a conversation starter and help people talk their way through their grief.

Nobody likes thinking about their own funeral, but if you want to go out in style, consider talking to your family about custom caskets. A custom casket can provide you with one last opportunity to make a big statement about yourself and it will likely help your loved ones get through the funeral as well.
