Trigard Memorials is known for high-tech, direct-to-metal technology and brilliant full-color specialty memorials. But these advanced memorial designs can come with a premium price. To make advanced personalization available to more families, Trigard Memorials unveiled affordable, full-color add-on portraits for their most traditional memorial lines, Classique® and Paragon®. Trigard believes everyone should be able to honor a loved one with a beautiful photo, no matter their budget. These new options were on display at the 2016 ICCFA Convention and Expo in New Orleans.

Also at the convention, the ICCFA Educational Foundation awarded the Lasting Impact Award to James “Big Jim” Darby, Trigard’s founder. To celebrate the honor, Trigard’s booth showcased a timeline of the Darby family business timeline. All ICCFA attendees received an electronic copy of “Big Jim’s” book, “No one looks up to a gravedigger: a memoir,” and he autographed paperback copies at the booth.

Trigard’s booth also featured pet memorialization products, bronze memorials, and the popular Healing Tree® burial vault and urn vault. Booth attendees also received a free digital gift card with resources to help boost their average vault sales, educate families and expand cremation options. They shared FAMIC’s “Have the Talk of a Lifetime” campaign materials to encourage families to talk about memorialization.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
