Eternal Image’s First Run of Major League Baseball™ Urns Nearly Sold out During Pre-Order Period
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eternal Image, Inc. (OTC: ETIM.PK), a public company engaged in the design, manufacturing and marketing of brand image caskets and urns, today announced that it has nearly sold-out its first run of Major League Baseball™ urns through pre-orders by distributors and funeral homes.
“We expect our next order to be available to distributors and funeral homes in mid-May – and we have more than doubled the production of the initial order.”
“Our pre-orders have been so strong that we have begun the next production run of the first eight urns a full two months early,” said Clint Mytych. “We expect our next order to be available to distributors and funeral homes in mid-May – and we have more than doubled the production of the initial order.”
Eternal Image has just begun filling orders for the first run of urns to distributors and funeral homes this month.
The company does not expect the additional manufacturing order to impact the design and tooling schedules for the next 12 urns or the first eight caskets, both scheduled to debut this September. It will continue to take orders for the line as well as its other lines on the company’s website (www.eternalimage.net)
The urn line includes eight MLB™ Clubs (Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, and St. Louis Cardinals). Urns and caskets featuring the balance of 22 teams will launch in late 2007 and through 2008.
