How To Make A Memorial Card

A memorial card is the smallest style of program you can create and distribute at any funeral service. It is a great choice for those who want to hand-out a smaller printed memorial. The size of the fold card measures 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches and folds directly down the center. It can be printed on a thicker paper such as a card stock or heavier text weight paper. To make a memorial card, you can either create it from scratch or use a memorial card template.

Although making it from scratch is the more cost effective option, there is more setup work involved prior to beginning your program.

Because of the smaller sizing, memorial cards are set-up in a software document with 2 cards per sheet. You will need to determine the fold lines for the card and set it within the software you will be using. You will also need to do everything in duplicate since there are 2 cards per sheet. It is important that you are very familiar with the software, prior to starting your lay-out, to avoid or minimize any technical issues that may arise.

The setup time can be time consuming and complicated. Utilizing a memorial card template will bypass the necessary set-up steps and is your best option. The Funeral Program Site offers ready-made memorial card templates, available for immediate download. We’ve taken care of the technical setup and background design, so all you need to do is begin entering your text and photos.
