MEMORY GLASS GIVES FUNERAL HOMES NEW SALES OUTLET
FOR BURIAL CUSTOMERS – TO BE UNVEILED AT NFDA IN NEW ORLEANS
October 5, 2010, Santa Barbara, CA – Memory Glass®, a cremation memorial company, announces today a new product offering that gives funeral homes a new add-on for traditional funeral packages – Memory Glass’® hand -blown glass keepsakes can now be infused with soil from a burial plot or sand, which no longer limits sales to accompanying cremations only.
“Our new capability to replace cremated remains with soil or sand in our products gives funeral homes another sales angle,” states Loren Dion, Memory Glass® Owner & Lead Artist. “Now, Memory Glass products are a transaction opportunity when their customers choose burial over cremation, giving funeral homes a new outlet to increase sales.”
Memory Glass® will have their new soil and sand-infused products on display at the National Funeral Directors Association’s (NFDA) International Convention & Expo in New Orleans from October 10-13, 2010. Visit Memory Glass at booth #760 to see a complete product line and find out how to become a vendor.
A Memory Glass® is a unique solid glass keepsake that eternally preserves cremated remains, soil from a burial site or sand, which are suspended within the glass. Four customizable products are available, each hand-blown using high-quality crystal glass and colored glass from a selection of 16 shades. An extremely small amount of cremated remains, soil or sand is required, giving families the opportunity to create multiple Memory Glass’®. When used with cremated remains, the family can still bury or scatter the remainder of the ashes.
Established in 2002, Memory Glass® began as a family business inspired by the loss of a close friend. Its mission is to provide a creative, affordable, alternative form of memorialization for those grieving the loss of family, friends or pets who are no longer with us. Memory Glass® products are available in funeral homes and crematoriums in all 50 states, each with samples on display in their facility.
