This Might Be a Bit Much: Company Offering 3D-printed Cremation Urns in the Likeness of the Deceased.
A Vermont based company, Cremation Solutions, is marketing a creative new way to memorialize your loved one. Cremation Solutions is producing 3D-printed head shaped urns in the likeness of the deceased.
The life sized busts are large enough to hold the ashes of an adult. Short on space? They offer a smaller, “keep-sake” sized urn meant to hold only a portion of the cremains. The busts are created using photos of the deceased, which the company says allows for a unique personalization over the classic urn.
Created from photos, the 3D busts do not come with hair, but hair can be added digitally in the form of a wig. Complexions can be adjusted in the final stages and customers get a chance to proof the results.
Prices range from $600 for the smaller cremation urn to $2,600 for a larger one. Not really happy with the face of your dearly departed? The company illustrates the service with an urn made in the shape of President Barack Obama’s head, explaining that you can also have the urn designed in the image of a personal hero.
