Richmond, IN – Starmark® Cremation Products, the country’s leading manufacturer of ceremonial rental casket inserts, has announced the introduction of the Sonnet, Starmark’s first oversize metal ceremonial rental casket.  The Sonnet model is available in both half couch and full couch and is offered with either crepe or velvet interior.  The 18-gauge steel casket features a metallic automotive grade finish, a generous 27” interior width, extra abdominal room and fully adjustable bed as well as replaceable head panels.  The Sonnet’s head panel can also accommodate personalized, standard-size decorative pop-in center panels, readily available industry-wide.

“Following our introduction of the Cadence round corner metal ceremonial rental casket, a number of funeral directors expressed a desire for an oversize model,” said Gerald Davis, President of Starmark Cremation Products.  “We challenged our design team to develop an oversize metal rental casket and the Sonnet is the end result of their creativity.”

The Sonnet is manufactured to the same high-quality standards and attention to detail as every Starmark product.  The casket’s secure foot end door latches and spring dampened hinge system are designed for years of use.  The patented adjustable bed system includes multiple rollers for convenient loading and unloading.  The bed features ball bearings for endless smooth crank operation.  The rental insert designed for the Sonnet includes a foot-end comfort grip handle for ease of loading and unloading.  Customers will also appreciate the exclusive head-end lid support system available only on the Sonnet.

The Sonnet Blue Mist joins the growing line of metal and hardwood ceremonial rental caskets offered by Starmark.  Funeral directors can offer families a fully merchandised line of ceremonial rental caskets, providing a tremendous value for the consumer and greatly enhanced profitability for the funeral home.

“Like our Cadence models, the Sonnet feature an automotive paint that can be touched up or entirely repainted by an automotive repair shop if necessary,” stated Davis.  “Nearly every part on the Sonnet can be easily and economically replaced, repainted or repaired.  All Starmark rental casket are built-to-last and we fully expect funeral homes to economically benefit from dozens, if not hundreds, of uses before replacement is necessary.”

The Sonnet joins the growing line of metal and hardwood ceremonial rental caskets offered by Starmark.  Funeral directors can offer families a fully merchandised line of ceremonial rental caskets, providing a tremendous value for the consumer and greatly enhanced profitability for the funeral home.  The Sonnet will be available in early June and Starmark will accept and encourages pre-orders.
