Planning a funeral is a difficult task. There is no other way to say it – nobody looks forward to doing so. That said, there are still ways you can honor your deceased loved one. One way to do this is by creating a funeral program booklet that reflects who they were in life. Although this does sound daunting regardless of what the planning does entail, know that your friends at Time Printers are here to help however we can

What is a Funeral Program? 

First off, let’s have a look at what a funeral program is supposed to be. The program is given to everyone attending the ceremony, much like how programs for weddings are distributed. Due to the state of the world, funerals are going to be even harder to coordinate. Given common-sense social distancing guidelines, it might be best to host a viewing or a wake through virtual means; likewise, you can email the program booklets to save some money on shipping costs.

Some Examples of Information to Include 

Okay, now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of how to fill out a funeral program booklet. First and foremost, there will be some relevant information about the service itself that you will need to include. The full name of the decedent needs to be on there, along with the maiden name if it is applicable. Date of birth and death must also be enclosed, along with the time, date, and location of both the funeral and the burial, although burial may or may not follow directly after the funeral itself. Who are the surviving family members, and pallbearers?  

Collect Personal Details 

Now then, there are going to be more relevant questions regarding the personal details of the person the funeral program booklet is meant for – so what does this mean, exactly? Talk to other friends and relatives to capture the details you yourself might not have known. 

Find Easy-to-Use Software or Templates

Finally, it’s time to assemble the funeral program booklet itself. Word-processing software can provide you with basic bi-fold or tri-fold layouts. Then again, there are more sophisticated programs such as Adobe Illustrator, SmartDraw, and Microsoft Publisher that can help you create something more elegant and touching.
