How To Make A Funeral Prayer Card
A funeral prayer card are small remembrance cards measuring 2.25 inches wide, by 4.25 inches high, and are typically distributed at a wake or visitation service. The purpose of prayer cards is to remember and reflect upon a loved one who has passed, by prayer or reflection. Prayer cards are convenient in size and can be carried in a purse or wallet. The handout of this printed memorial is not limited to the wake or visitation service. It can also be given out during the funeral or grave side service.
You can create a funeral prayer card from scratch or by using a ready-made template. If you want to make it from scratch, some setup work is required prior to entering your information.
You will first need to determine the cut-lines for each prayer card. Typically prayer cards are formatted on a letter sheet of paper with 8 cards per sheet. Each card will need to be cut for separation after printing. Next, open the software you want to use and place your ruler line for each cut-line. You will need to set-up the software document for the front and back of the prayer card. Once you have the format completed, you can add in the other elements such as the background, text and photo boxes. 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.
Setting up a funeral prayer card lay-out from scratch, can be time consuming and complicated since there are multiples on a sheet.
