Creating Meaningful Funeral Stationery

Today's funeral stationery items are highly personal.  Take advantage of this growing trend and give your clients the special, meaningful products they want.

Funeral stationery is one of the ways in which a funeral home can add a special touch to a family's experience.   With funeral software programs that allow you to add themes, scanned photos, images, and text, you can create unique and personal items such as funeral register books, prayer cards, memorial folders and even keepsakes.

You clients can choose one photo to be printed on all of their stationery items, or they may decide to use a different photo, or even multiple photos, for one item.  Possibilities for design are limitless with hundreds of themes to choose from.  But, online theme views make it easy for families to make a selection in the comfort of their own home.  Once they've made their selection, they give you a call and you can quickly and easily create more meaningful funeral stationery in-house.

Types of Funeral Stationery Available for Personalization
Funeral register books tell visitors that their presence will be noted. A register book that has been assembled with attention to every page, featuring photos, quotations, poetry, prose or sacred text, gives the impression that the book will be looked at repeatedly. A visitor who signs such a book will no doubt feel that his name will be viewed repeatedly, as well.

Insert a different photo for each page and, accompanied by a quotation or line of sacred text, the book becomes a unique representation of the person who has passed away.  Visitors may spend time browsing through the book, taking comfort in the images and messages it contains. 

Prayer cards, when printed on both sides, can create a large impact in a small space.   Photos of the deceased, accompanied by prayers, sacred text and poetry, can be arranged in a variety of ways to create a visually-pleasing and meaningful keepsake.  Bookmarks can also be created using advanced funeral software.  These are a practical and useful gift for mourners to take away with them.

Memorial folders can also be personalized with photos, images and text.  Although more secular in nature than prayer cards, they serve a similar purpose.  They carry a message representing the character or outlook of the deceased, and can be used as mementos for distribution to mourners.

A funeral service program or memorial service program lists the main event of the funeral service itself.  These programs feature a front and back cover, along with several inner pages.  The front cover may feature a photo of your loved one, along with the date, time and location of the funeral service, while the back cover may contain a poem, quotation, or prayer, as well as a personal message from the family.  Inside the elements of the service are listed.

All of these funeral stationery items can employ a theme that ties them together visually, such as an occupation or hobby.  However you choose to create them, they are very personal mementos for every person who receives them.
