MORE and more of us are choosing to go out in a splash of colour, we want choices — even in death — rather than a cookie cutter approach to commiseration.
"Death is always an unwelcome experience. We avoid it as much as we can. When death happens, we wonder "what type of coffin they want? What should we do? What's appropriate at the time?" We believe that a good funeral is the beginning of a healthy grief process."
Increasingly, families are moving away from the traditional morbid wooden coffin and opting for the more personalised & colourful tribute coffin to remembering loved ones and honouring the life they lived. Traditional wooden coffins magnify grief, personalised coffins provide comfort.
You'll be surprised how a few treasured photo's on a coffin can tell a wonderful story about your loved one. Our innovative approach and personal service helps families celebrate the life of their loved one in a unique and special way. From design through to production, we do a wonderful job at helping make a sad time more bearable.
“It is a rotten day, and if you can do anything to lift that gloom, it is a good thing.”
Lifestyle Coffins was established in 2010 by Corey & Lisa Simpson. Corey is a signwriter/ graphic designer of 30 years and owns 'Signlab' a signage company located in Alberton, SA. Lisa is a registered nurse and they have two children Luke and Leah.
Lifestyle Coffins was established when a good family friend of Corey asked him to decorate his sons coffin with football club colours and family photos. The coffin got a lot of attention at the funeral service as personalised coffins were a relatively new concept and certainly not mainstream. After seeing first hand the attention the coffin received at the funeral and the positive feedback received from the funeral arranger, Corey knew that personalised coffins were a much better alternative to the traditional wooden coffin.
Up until early 2020, Corey wrapped Lifestyle Coffins at his workshop in Alberton, SA and shipped them by road all over the country. Due to increasing demand he established partners in VIC, NSW, QLD & WA to save on shipping costs and speed up delivery times. Lifestyle Coffins are completed to a high standard and delivered within 24 hours of artwork approval to make sure we don’t delay the funeral arrangements.
Lifestyle Coffins take the health of our environment seriously, our coffins are printed with eco-solvent or water based inks and wrapped with PVC FREE film making them crematorium and eco friendly.
As a family owned and operated business we really care about what we do for families.
Lifestyle coffins provide grieving families the opportunity to personalise their loved ones coffin in the most unique way. Many families I have been privileged enough to care for have expressed how special it was to have such an option available to them. Corey and the team are truly making a difference to families in their time of need.
