Memorial lanterns are a decorative way to honor a loved one’s memory. Lanterns are a beloved keepsake item that many people display inside their home or office as well as in an outdoor setting. They often include a wax or LED candle which is encased within four glass window panes with a front window pane that opens via a latch. The front of the lantern opens so it is easy for you to light or turn on a candle for a special lighted memorial.
Memorial lanterns come in different shapes, sizes and designs. Not all of them look the same and can be made of wood, metal or plastic material. Typically the window panes are glass but sometimes is offered in a thick acrylic to withstand any breakage during shipment or transport. Lanterns can also be used for many different occasions. Lately, more and more families are choosing to commemorate a loved one’s memory by engraving a personalized sentiment or name on the front window pane of the lantern.
There are few companies that offer this type of decoration but The Funeral Program Site is the best resource for having a memorial lantern personalized!There are many lovely word art creations that they imprint on the lantern for an adornment. Imprinting a memorial quote or poem snippet just makes it even more personal and meaningful for someone who has recently suffered a loss.
It also makes a treasured sympathy gift for a friend or family member. The personalization on the glass or acrylic pane should be printed directly on the surface. You may find some individuals or companies may use a decal to create such text but this is not a long lasting method. It is basically a sticker that is adhered to the glass which is not the most professional look and can easily fall off over time.
The Funeral Program Site does offer many different varieties of lanterns such as those with wax and LED candles inside. They also imprint the personalized text directly on the glass itself with a special printer that is made to print on this type of surface. In this way, you know that your lantern will be adored for many years to come.

It includes an LED candle with batteries so it is ready to light upon delivery! Most do not include the batteries so this is an especially nice touch!
A unique option is the ability to have an actual photograph of the deceased printed on the back window pane, if desired. It really brightens up the lantern by adding a touch of color as a backdrop to the candle itself.
