SpartaCraftSpartaCraft Inc.

A proud member of the OGR family!

Words cannot express our gratitude to you for the caring service you provide to families. In addition to our military, SpartaCraft truly appreciates the heroes of the funeral profession.

The flag cases and urns SpartaCraft builds and provides to all OGR members are the finest and most requested memorials in the United States. In addition to providing an American-made product to honor our country’s heroes, past and present, the quality of SpartaCraft memorials gives the funeral provider a source of referrals for the future needs of the families you serve.

In addition to the highest quality products, personalization is a key service we provide, so with one phone call or email to OGR Products & Services, every memorial product can be custom engraved with Laser Engraving and/or Black-on-Brass plate engraving –– and can ship the same day!

Consider this: When speaking with the family of a U.S. Veteran thinking about a flag case or urn, consider asking them, "Would your loved one prefer an American-made product, or an imported product?" This gentle reminder helps the family make a decision that best honors their loved one and hero.

Member Benefit: 5% savings over wholesale prices
