A funeral booklet is an extended version of a funeral program which is offered at a funeral or memorial service. Often the bereaved family members want to give all attendees a memorial keepsake and a creative funeral booklet is an excellent way to stress a loved one’s life in greater detail.
A funeral booklet can contain the funeral order of service, a eulogy of the deceased, funeral poems, bible scripture verses, song or hymn lyrics, photos of the deceased with family, and a special note from the bereaved family to all supporters and attendees.
Creating a funeral booklet is not difficult if you start with the right tools. Usually people who have recently lost a loved one are busy tending to all the preparations of the funeral service and may not always have the time or resources to create such an elaborate booklet.
The best way to produce a creative funeral booklet design is to purchase a pre-designed template. These templates will have the foundation of the design already created and all you will need to do is add in the text and photos. A real time saver for those who are short of time. It is also budget friendly because you can print it yourself on a home printer or take it to an economy printing store.
The best way to create a booklet is to look for funeral program templates that are bi-fold and letter size. Using the letter size format is easier to create booklets simply by folding them in half. It is also easy to get a heavier weight paper in this size. Templates will come with a front, back cover design and one interior page. To make a booklet, just duplicate the interior page as many times as you need to.
Print each page front and back and when all the pages are printed, get the pages in order and fold them in half. You may want to consider placing two staples in the booklet to keep the pages together and provide a neater presentation.
Your funeral booklet will be a keepsake that is kept for a long time. It is also a great way to highlight a loved one’s life from beginning to end, if desired.
