International to Introduce a New Scattering Tube Design in 2013
Passages International recently invited its customers and
other funeral professionals to participate in a contest to design artwork for a
new scattering tube. A winner has been
chosen and we are beginning production now. Both the winner and the new artwork
design will be announced at the CANA Marketing Symposium in Las Vegas next
Passages pioneered the Scatter Tube concept and was the
first to introduce it to funeral professionals. The Tubes are designed and
engineered to simplify the scattering process.
They are durable, dignified and easy to use because they feature a
removable lid and industry-first, perforated "push-in” tab, to easily open the
tube prior to use.
The new scattering tube will be available to funeral
professionals in the spring of 2013. It is
truly unique and will be the perfect addition to the existing tube designs. Scattering tubes are very popular with
families who want to scatter the cremated remains of a loved one over land or
water. This new design will provide families with options that are not
currently available with other tube designs.
"We are really excited about this new tube. We have
considered this type of design for some time and the contest submission, along
with valuable input from our judges confirms that this will be widely accepted
by funeral professionals, and most importantly by the families,” says Passages’
President, Darren Crouch. "The functionality, uniqueness, affordability and eco-friendly
nature of the tubes are only part of the attraction to families. The design and
overall appeal are also very important. Passages
also wants to express its gratitude to the funeral professional judges who took
time out of their busy schedules to evaluate the entries and cast their votes,”
The contest winner is receiving a roundtrip airfare and
registration to the CANA Marketing Symposium in Las Vegas along with two
nights’ hotel accommodations and a free case of the new Scattering Tube.
