Use Personalized Tombstones in Halloween Decorations

Whether you’re looking for a funny decoration or something really spooky, Personalized Tombstone decorations offer tons of ways to customize your Halloween decor. Use your imagination and these tips to come up with awesome Halloween decorations this year!

Personalized Tombstones are a fantastic Halloween decoration that you can have printed with your custom wording. You can use the Personalized Tombstones in your Halloween décor year after year. ShindigZ has three styles of personalized tombstones, standard tombstones, skull tombstones, or traditional tombstones. The 46″ high x 25″ wide tombstones are available in cardboard for indoor use or weather-resistant corex.

Here are some ideas for how to use personalized tombstones:

Create a tombstone for each member of your family and create a family grave yard on the lawn. You’ll create an eerie decoration to welcome trick-or-treaters.

Use the personalized tombstone with scary decorations such as a Grave Evader (a ghoul, coming out of the ground) or the Gruesome Ground Breakers (hands sticking out of the ground) to make visitors scream! Welcome guests to your property with a Cemetery Yard Sign.

If you’re going for a funny look rather than a scary one, use the tombstones, personalizing them with classic comedic epitaphs. For example:

Stranger ! Approach this spot with gravity !
John Brown is filling his last cavity. (For a Dentist’s house)

Here Lies the Body of
Jonathan Blake
Stepped on the Gas Instead of the Brake

Here lies John Yeast,
Pardon me for not rising.

The tombstones will bring a smile to guest’s faces and can be used in your Halloween decorations annually.

Standees Made Shep Moyle’s Birthday Special

Shep Moyle between two Standees from a recent triathalon.

Shep Moyle between two ShindigZ Standees from a recent triathalon.

As you know, birthdays in the Moyle household are always special affairs. The day always begins with a phone call from Grandpa Jack who will play us “happy birthday” on his trumpet at 6:30 am. Thankfully, he is quite talented and this can soften the blow of a blaring trumpet as a wake up call.

Dancing birthday cakes, happy birthday hats and the “I am special today” plate will also greet me each new birthday morning. This year, my lovely bride, Wendy, had taken several photos of me in my first sprint triathlon and in my training for the upcoming Chicago triathlon. She had taken the photos and had them transformed into life sized photo standees that greeted me in the family room as I headed out toward breakfast. The dogs were also taken aback as well and our puppy, Bella spent much of the morning barking at the “workout Shep” hanging out in the family room.

As a personal recipient of these items, I can attest to what a hit they are with friends and family. Even Madison’s teenage friends have commented on them, “Love the standups Mr. Moyle, you rock!” Unfortunately, I believe they may have also had great fun transporting “me” about and having me be a part of some unique photos for Facebook!

It was a great birthday—I am looking forward to my gift of basketball camp for old guys next year at Duke—and the photo standups are still hanging out with us as the kids do their homework. Just another way ShindigZ makes all your birthdays special and memorable.

All the best,
