1. Where can I buy a LifeArt coffin?

LifeArt coffins must be purchased through a funeral director. You can find a list of funeral homes who are currently stocking our products on this website. If your local funeral director is not on this list, ask them to call LifeArt straight away.

2. Why can’t I buy a coffin directly from LifeArt?

LifeArt is a wholesale business that sells coffins directly to funeral homes. In our experience, liaising directly with a funeral director allows us to address any questions they may have about the suitability of our product.

3. What is the delivery timeframe?

Your LifeArt coffin can be delivered within the time it takes to organise a funeral. As a general rule of thumb, the following applies:

  • Single orders from our catalogue range - if received and confirmed before midday (Sydney time) dispatched the same day and then in the hands of the courier
  • Orders from our catalogue range with a personalised text to be added - add 24 hours to the above
  • Custom design orders - normally dispatched on the next working day after you have approved the final design

Generally, LifeArt supplies the requested order to your funeral home within 3 days, but delivery times are entirely subject to the courier's delivery schedules.

4. How much does a LifeArt coffin cost?

Your funeral director will be able to provide you with exact information about costs.

This is because a range of factors can affect the price, including the distance required to deliver the coffin, and how many coffins the funeral director is able to have as stock on hand.

LifeArt’s coffins range from a natural finish or a White-Decorate-It-Yourself, to a high quality printed coffin from our catalogue range, through to a fully personalised coffin designed with support from our graphic designer.

5. Can I use photos, art or images to create my very own design?

You sure can! This kind of personalisation if one of the major benefits our coffins offer.

We have a professional and experienced graphic design team who are happy to personalise any design for you. They will advise you on the quality of images required, answer your questions about the design process, and ensure you have approved the design before it goes to print.

Remember, if you are having a personalised coffin, your approval is an important factor in when the finished product can be delivered.

You can view our gallery of custom design examples for inspiration.
