Use Their Memories to Personalize Your Services with Tributes Expressed

Introducing Tributes Expressed: a company with a heart for life celebrations. Our founder, John Iacovino, was at a memorial service two years ago for his Aunt Helen. Helen had been a mother, real estate agent, and had been quite the jokester; including rumors that she was spotted mooning people from a moving vehicle. None of these memories represented at her funeral service. After having read articles regarding the traditional funeral becoming an event of life celebration and healing it was obvious that message had not met the funeral director who had done Helen’s service. John decided he wanted to be a part of that healing message.

But let’s be honest – if it wasn’t something that was quick to deliver and timely to order it wouldn’t work. This is why Tributes Expressed provides:

  • The ability for a funeral professional to provide a medium for the family to use their fondest memories to personalize the service
  • Turnaround time you can count on
  • The ability to order in just 10 minutes or less
  • High margin contribution to the directors bottom line

We are now a company dedicated to providing each funeral professional with the ability to give their families a way to use their fondest memories to personalize their services. As we review industry trends we know that funeral personalization is not just one person’s wish, it’s becoming an industry standard. We look forward to providing even more products and services that give funeral professionals the edge as we grow.
