Memorial programs are easier to create if you have all the information gathered that you are going to include in your project. If you do not have all the information gathered yet, now worries, you can always start a memorial program to get some ideas then come back later and finish it.
You can also create a memorial program of virtually any size. The example memorial program below is an example of an 17 x 11 memorial program.

Other sizes of memorial programs are shown below. The neat thing about using Card Designer to create your memorial program is you can create such a custom finished product that it will look like you created it using Photoshop. The only difference is we have made it far easier for you to create a memorial program and create it right online so you don’t have to download any software. All you need is your web browser. We recommend using Google Chrome.
If you would like to create other products than a memorial program, you can do that as well. The pictures below show some of the other products that you can create with Card Designer’ online application.
When you are done creating your memorial program, you will probably be surprised at what you have created. Many people say that they “can’t believe that they created what they did” and “how great the finished product looks”. Our customers also often tell us that everyone at the memorial service loved the memorial program that they made and that it was the “perfect way to help celebrate the life of their loved one”.
When you create your memorial program online, you can use any of our memorial program templates or upload your background. You can also upload as many photos as you want. Our eraser and masking tool will allow you to erase any portion of a photo and blend it into the background. You can add as many text boxes as you want and drag and drop them anywhere. When you are done editing your memorial program, you will be able to save it as a PDF file and print on any printer. You can even transfer your PDF file to a USB/jump drive and take it to a near-by printing shop.
How to write a Memorial Program
Many people find it challenging when in comes to knowing how to write a memorial program for a funeral or celebration of life.
Here are a few quick tips for writing and printing the perfect memorial funeral folder.
If you follow these simple suggestions, we hope to make the process much easier. The samples below will also help.
Keep it simple. Use photos and memorial poems, verses and sayings found here: Memorial poems and verses.
Print on high quality white or off white paper. Go to Kinkos and show them what you would like. They will have a book full of paper samples. Color photos will print best on white paper.
Consider printing the lyrics to your loved ones favorite songs in the memorial program. When you play the song at the service you can encourage people to sing along and refer to the lyrics in the program. View our list of memorial songs and lyrics.
Use a high quality laser printer. If you don’t have one, make your life easier and have Kinkos or a local printer print it for you. Photos look much better on high quality printers.
If you have an event at the service such as a dove or butterfly release, incorporate a photo of a dove or butterfly into the program.
If you follow these few tips, I think you’ll find designing the memorial service folder or program to be much easier and the outcome will be a program as beautiful and unique as the loved one you lost.
