Photo boards and video tributes are common elements of today’s funerals and memorial services. What isn’t as common, but is very well received by families, is when funeral directors make those photos into keepsake gifts.
For example, Funeral Home Gifts makes pictures of loved ones into beautiful tribute blankets that are displayed at a memorial service and can be ordered by the attendees. PhotoPros recently debuted their service of providing canvas prints of pictures to the funeral industry at the 2018 convention and expo of the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA).
“If people with funeral homes would like to personalize some photo gifts for their customers, we offer photo services direct to canvas and shipped directly to the customer,” said Molly Stout with PhotoPros.
PhotoPros restores photos that are damaged, retouch details like flyaway hair or acne, can change backgrounds or remove people from pictures, and colorize black-and-white photos. They manufacture the perfected photos on canvas and ship them directly to the family when it’s done. Here’s an example of their “Before” and “After” work.
The canvas prints can be ordered by the family, as well as other attendees at a funeral or memorial service. The funeral home would get a percentage of the cost or a referral fee.
If you compare the framed photos to the finished products on display in the video, you’ll see some of the differences between the original pictures and the canvas keepsake versions. You can find out more about this service at www.MemorialPhotoCanvas.com.
