One token of remembrance that you may want to consider distributing at a funeral service are funeral obituary programs. This type of keepsake provides all attendees a memory of the deceased in a program that they are able to take home.
Free Obituary Programs
Funeral obituary programs are generally letter-size and are folded in half. The cover of the program may have a photo of the deceased in front of a lovely background or design. The name, date of birth and date of death are noted beneath their photo. It is not necessary to have a photo on the cover so if you do not have one, ensure that the cover design can stand on its own without the need or embellishment of a photograph.
Since you or someone has taken the time to write an obituary, it is nice to be able to print it other than the newspaper obituaries. Often, the newspaper will have a space limitation and the obituary cannot run in its entirety. The funeral obituary program can provide that source of publication in which you will be able to publish the entire article along with any accompanying photos of the deceased.
This program can be distributed to each attendee upon their arrival at the funeral service. You can designate someone to hand out a program as they enter or simply place it on a table for attendees to pick up as they arrive.
If you are short on time in creating a funeral obituary program, you may want to consider producing one from a template. Funeral obituary program templates save you time because all you need to do is enter your obituary text and any related photos.
