If you are looking for something to easily and affordably use as a promotional item at community events or open houses, Passages Bookmarks and Mini Cards are your answer. Personalized with your funeral home name, the card or bookmark keeps you top-of-mind with families and elevates the status of your business.
Attached to each Bookmark or Mini Card is a Mini Blooming Remembrance. Each remembrance is created with flower seeds as part of its construction to allow new life to grow when planted. When placed into soil and watered, the paper will biodegrade and the seeds will grow into a beautiful, living remembrance of a loved one. These are sold in bags of 100.
These unique Mini Cards and Bookmarks can be used in several creative ways. Our Mini Blooming Remembrances can be attached to Bookmarks and Mini Cards to be handed out to family, friends and memorial service attendees. They can also be used by funeral homes, cemeteries and crematories as marketing tools when the business logo, website and phone number are customized onto each card. These can then be made available to families in the lobby of the business, used during holiday memorial events or given to families with a paid invoice or thank you note.
Click here to view our five standard verses for Bookmarks and Mini Cards. Passages can also use another verse of your choice, if it fits in the space available. We also offer Blooming Ornaments – larger blooming remembrances that, instead of a mini card or bookmark, are affixed with a raffia tie to be used as a hanging ornament.
Custom shapes, colors, and seed options may be available, please call for more information. Each ornament is crafted by hand in batch runs, so shapes and colors may vary slightly. The paper for the Mini Cards and Bookmarks is produced from mixed sources and is Green Seal Certified.
Passages® eco-friendly funeral products give families the opportunity to honor a loved one after their passing with a smaller environmental footprint. We believe that, especially when a person valued sustainability during their life, it is important to have the option for a greener end-of-life ritual. Whether a family chooses to bury or cremate, our caskets and carriers are dignified and suitable to do so in an eco-friendly manner. If cremation is chosen, our biodegradable urns offer a variety of options for ceremonies that return the cremated remains to the earth.
Passages suggests offering memorial trees as the perfect complement to any biodegradable urn or scattering tube. Whether it is planted where the cremated remains of a loved one are scattered or buried, or in your garden at home, the trees provide a lasting and living memorial. As part of The Natural Choice® Memorial Tree Program, a numbered certificate can be used to redeem a 12” tree sapling that is appropriate to your climate and guaranteed for a year to grow. Read more about the program and how it works.
Simply complete the form on our website, including your certificate number, and a tree will be mailed to the address you provide. Memorial trees are a wonderful way to remember a loved one that, if you choose, can grow from the same soil in which a loved one’s remains were laid to rest. Because families receive a sapling instead of seeds, the hardest part of the tree’s life has passed and there is no worry of a seed not germinating.
Each Passages adult casket comes with a free Memorial Tree Certificate that can be redeemed for a live tree.
Memorial Petals are also available and are a perfect addition to a burial at sea or other ceremonies.
