Funeral Printing Services in Baltimore

Funeral Printing BaltimoreLosing a loved one is never easy. Planning a funeral can be even harder. Somehow you have to put aside your grief and plan a beautiful ceremony to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. It’s not easy, but it is necessary. And there are so many things to consider, from meeting with funeral directors throughout Baltimore to funeral printing and, of course, covering the costs.

Planning a Funeral or Memorial Service

While a somber occasion, a funeral is an opportunity for family and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the deceased, while offering support and comfort to one another. Planning a funeral is a complicated process. Taking the following steps can help you through this trying time.

Honor the Wishes of the Deceased

Some people are very good at planning ahead, especially when they know the end is near. Some people will actually write down their wishes, while others will simply tell friends and family. Either way, it is important to try and honor these wishes as best you can.

Choose a Funeral Home

Contact several funeral directors throughout the Baltimore area to compare options and, perhaps most importantly, to compare prices.  But know what you want before you call.

“If you just call a funeral home asking for the price of a funeral, you could be quoted a top-of-the-line service and get taken to the cleaners,” says Joshua Slocum, executive director of Funeral Consumers Alliance. “Just because funerals are emotional transactions doesn’t mean consumers should forget they’re also business transactions, but they do.”

Before you call different funeral homes to compare prices, it is important to know what you want. Will the deceased be buried or cremated? Will there be any special ceremonies? Some Fraternal Orders and the Military may provide special ceremonies for the funeral service. Will this be a large memorial service, or a more intimate affair with family and a few close friends?

You don’t need to iron out all the details, but you should have a general idea of what you want. Then, once you choose a funeral home, the funeral director will help you finalize your plans.

Who will deliver the eulogy? More importantly, who will oversee the entire ceremony? Will there be a guest book? What about pictures? And then there are printed materials to consider…

Funeral Printing

Funerals and memorial services are all about remembering the deceased. The best way to do this is to tailor the funeral to the deceased. This includes the printed materials: programs, prayer cards, memorial posters, bookmarks, acknowledgement cards, and more.
