Daisybox Engineered Cardboard Caskets

Family and friends can say a final goodbye to their person in a Daisybox® cardboard casket, decorated in one of three ways:

  1. Plain (no surface decorations or graphics)

  2. DIY decorated surface (pens, crayons, markers)

  3. Photographic print-wrapped surface(s)

"When I'm gone, just put me in a cardboard coffin or casket!" 

Some families choose to have a simple, direction cremation with no funeral service and no family present, with the most basic casket or coffin accepted by crematoriums and burial grounds. Their loved one is taken direct from the hospice, hospital or home, to a mortuary, where the body is prepared for cremation or burial and placed in a casket for transport to the crematorium or burual grounds.

Many find that a "basic" coffin or casket is offered as a ~ AU$1,200 MDF or chipboard-based model, when an economical and greener alternative is a AU$400 plain Daisybox cardboard casket.  

Why is it important to express grief through a gathering of friends and family at a funeral service?

Expressing grief allows people to find a sense of peace in eventually acknowledging the death of a loved one and moving on with their life. The process of dealing with grief varies for everyone. It's affected by many factors like age, belief, personality, family, and peers.

Hand-decorate a Daisybox prior to a cremation or eco-burial

For friends and families that want to surface-decorate a Daisybox, prior to it being viewed by attendees at an indoor or outdoor funeral service, a brown or white-coloured Daisybox cardboard casket is often ideal.


Purchase a Daisybox® cardboard casket from a participating funeral arranger and have it delivered flat-packed to your home or nearby community hall in the week(s) leading up to a service. Some funeral arrangers will allow you to write final messages, poems and decorations in a room at their facilities, prior to the person being placed inside the casket.

While it's strong enough to carry 240kg / 500Lbs, a Daisybox cardboard casket weighs only ~ 7kg / 15Lb , meaning it can be easily handled and placed by one person on a table for friends and family to decorate with dried flowers, photos, coloured markers, pens or water-color paints.  The final creative outcome is up to you. If you choose to decorate away from a funeral home, when you're finished decorating, have your local funeral arranger collect the casket or have it delivered to them. When assembled, a Daisybox cardboard casket measures 200x53x33cm / 79" x 21" x 13" meaning most large cars where the back seats fold forward, will accomodate it.

Photographic print-wrapped surface

If hand-decorating a Daisybox cardboard casket is too emotional for the family, you may opt for proint-wrapped version. Here, you supply the funeral arranger with digital images that reflect the life of your person, and these are inkjet printed onto self-adhesive polypropylene (pvc-free) film and wrapped on the lid and/or sides of the casket.  Expect to pay approximately $1,200 for a print-wrapped Daisybox, plus artwork costs.
