Unique Cremation Urns
When choosing the perfect cremation urn for your loved one, it's important that it pays tribute to their unique life and one-of-a-kind personality. Trupoint Memorials offers a collection of unusual, specialty urns for ashes that capture the essence or soul of those who passed and memorialize them in a special way... We've got a selection of individually handcrafted urns that represent the person's unique characteristics, whether a mom or dad, a child, or even a pet.
Choosing the right specialty urn
When choosing the right urn for your loved one’s cremains, you need to consider the size, material, and design. We offer a wide range of sizes, from keepsake urns that hold a very small amount of ashes to small urns for children, large urns for adults, and extra-large urns for those who weighed more than 200 lbs.
Our urns come in two high-quality materials: brass and aluminum. Both are incredibly durable and suitable for keeping indoors or for outdoor burials. They only differ in terms of their weight, with aluminum being the lighter metal.
The urn’s design is another important consideration. Trupoint’s range includes a number of carefully hand-selected styles and colors. Some of our unusual nature designs include intricately painted wild horses, butterflies, and cardinals. We have a lighthouse seascape and cool, abstract artwork depicting the ocean tides and desert sands. You’re also unlikely to find a one-of-a-kind camouflage design like ours elsewhere or something as unique as a firefighter motif.
Regardless of your choice, rest assured that each urn is hand-carved and painted with hard-wearing paint for a long-lasting, glossy finish.
We look at capacity rather than size because urns come in various shapes. On average, every pound of body weight produces one cubic inch of ash, which requires an urn capacity of at least one cubic inch. For example, an adult weighing 150 pounds will need an urn with no less than 150 cubic inches capacity.
We always recommend opting for a larger size when selecting an urn to err on the side of caution.
These are divided into adult, child and infant, and pet urns.
- Adult urns: Sizes are typically 150–300 cubic inches.
- Small children and infants: These are usually 20–80 cubic inches.
- Pet urns most commonly range from 20–50 cubic inches.
Companion urns hold the cremains of up to two adults. The total capacity typically ranges from 380–500 cubic inches.
Keepsake urns are much smaller, as the cremains are shared among loved ones. They can even be worn as jewelry. Their size typically ranges from 0.25–50 cubic inches.
You can only travel with urns that are airline approved. This means urns cannot be made of metal or dense materials like marble, as the contents of the urn cannot be viewed by the X-ray machines.
Instead, fly with urns made from plastic, wood, or biodegradable materials. They should be lightweight yet durable enough to travel with. Ceramic and porcelain urns should be avoided as they are easily broken.
Remember to make sure the urn will remain fully sealed during your travels.
There is no one material that is the best choice for everyone.
You need to consider what function it needs to fulfill and where it will be kept. Almost all materials are suitable for indoors. But outdoor urns need to be durable and weatherproof, like stone or certain metals. If you want it to biodegrade in nature, you should opt for plant-based substances.
A significant determining factor will be your budget. There are usually more affordable alternatives to pricier materials. Stone is cheaper than marble. Stainless steel is more budget-friendly than pewter. Even the types of wood vary in price.
