Funerals are expensive, but very important events. Most people do their very best to do things right. They want the last thing they do for their loved one to be special. So, they want all of the little extras like a nice funeral program that friends and family can potentially take home with them.
Why are funeral programs important?
They help to bring structure to the event and guide people through it. This is especially important for those who are very upset. The program gives them a focal point and leads them gently through the day.
Why are funeral programs so expensive?
However, they can also be expensive to provide. Most print firms charge a lot to produce something like this. Often, they will want to produce them in big batches. This is OK for a funeral where there is likely to be a lot of mourners, but very annoying for those who are hosting a small affair. It means that you will have paid out a lot more money than necessary for the programs and will have the painful task of having to put what is left over in the bin.
Print your own funeral programs
A far better approach is to produce your own funeral programs. It will be much cheaper and you can stay in control of how many are printed.
You also stay in complete control when it comes to the design. Once you have found a nice funeral plan template, all you need to do is to edit the words used and upload some nice photos. Surprisingly, a lot of print firms do not offer this flexibility as a part of their service.
