If you have to create a funeral program or memorial service program, it may be hard to know where to begin. One of the easiest ways to get started is to look at programs that have already been created. Many friends and family members keep funeral programs as keepsakes, and may have a few programs that you can look at. You can also use the Internet to find funeral program samples. Simply go to your favorite search engine and type “funeral programs” or “funeral program samples” . It also helps to just search for images only.
Looking at examples will not only give you ideas about design and layout, but will also help you determine what information you would like to include in your programs. Funeral programs can be a short one page document that just contains brief information about the service and the deceased. You can also choose to make your program several pages long, including information such as funeral poems, bible scriptures, a detailed order of service, obituary and details of the person’s life and photos of family and friends. It all just depends on your preference. You can also find funeral program templates on the internet, save lots of time with design and layout of your program.
Taking the time to look at examples will help you create a beautiful program that not only serves as a program, but will be a cherished keepsake for years to come.
