A funeral program is a very important part of a funeral
or memorial service. Sometimes called a funeral order of
service or a memorial service bulletin, it is the
printed piece of funeral stationery that outlines the
order of events during a funeral or memorial service. It
also serves to summarize the life of a loved one who has
The family of the deceased usually provides the
information for the memorial program to their death care
professional. Often families wish the memorial program
to be highly personalized and those that attend a
memorial will hold on to the stationery as a keepsake.
Included in a funeral program are usually items such as:
the entrance song or hymn, an opening prayer, some
readings, additional funeral music and more prayers.
Additionally each customized funeral program can provide
other personal details such as poetry or verses of
significance, a biography of the deceased, names of
surviving family members, and an obituary of the
deceased. Some families even include a thank you to
their guests for having attended the service.
Memorial service bulletins can be further customized
with a professionally designed theme and printed using
the latest funeral software. Personalized stationery has
been changed forever with this robust funeral
technology. Now death care professionals can add
personal photos and theme the funeral programs to be
coordinated with other personalized stationery to best
represent the deceased's life. A vast amount of theme
options make creating a unique and personal funeral
program easy. Using this new funeral software, death
care professionals have the ability to offer a client
family over 450 different backgrounds for their funeral
program and funeral stationery. These themes represent
almost every interest, hobby, occupation, and religious
background. The full-color, professional quality of
these memorial programs are a far cry from the
pre-printed stationery of yesteryear.
A memorial service bulletin should be detailed and share
the unique personality traits of a families loved one.
Having generic stationery and programs in this day and
age is unacceptable. Pre-printed funeral stationery
definitely cannot offer the options and reflect the
individuals unique qualities. Thankfully funeral
software and personalized stationery is progressing
along with client families needs and wishes.
