Orinda, California (EastBayDaily) — Funeral programs are one of the most important items within a funeral or memorial service for any bereaved family. Unlike a casket, which is laid and buried underground, a funeral program is a great keepsake that is brought home and cherished for many years after the ceremony. It may be the only printed material a family has of the final celebration of life. Because the funeral planning window is often very short, families and funeral homes alike can now create professional looking programs and prayer cards with minimal time and effort.
With the addition of the latest microsoft templates for the memorial Gatefold program and folded prayer card layouts, The Funeral Program Site now offers the largest selection of templates compatible with Microsoft Word®, Publisher®, and Apple iWork Pages®. With 15 different program styles and over 300 designs, everyone can find just the right background design to fit any personality.
The new Gatefold memorial program offers a unique presentation for programs. This layout prints on a legal size paper with the side folds opening out to reveal the inside page. This in turn mimics a type of gate opening, hence the name. The folded prayer card template plays on the traditional prayer card but offers a folded presentation and utilizes a letter sheet of paper in a 4-up format. Both new styles are equally a great choice for any type of service.
Windows and Mac Users alike will be happy to know that these templates work with software virtually everyone has installed on the home or office computer. Now it is easy to accomplish a professional looking layout even if you are creatively challenged.
This successful online company has been producing templates compatible with Microsoft Office® software and Apple iWork Pages® for over a decade. While keeping the average skilled computer user in mind, the templates for memorial programs are extremely easy to use. “You do not have to be a graphic designer or possess creative skills in order to produce a truly professional looking template in a short amount of time”, notes Carole Galassi, Creative Director and CEO of The Funeral Program Site. “We do everything we can to equip the user in the creation of a funeral program with full customer support and online video tutorials.”
The layouts and design are versatile and elegant resulting in repeat customers from all over the country. Many of the styles presented on the website are modern and unique. Further, new designs and template styles are added every week to keep a fresh selection for new visitors as well as repeat customers.
“When you are undergoing a loss of a loved one and having to plan the memorial service, there just isn’t enough time to create anything from scratch”, shares Bob, a small business owner and loyal customer from Toledo, Ohio. “These templates are a life saver for me since I don’t have a graphic designer on staff.”
The Funeral Program Site has been noted to be the funeral template leader in the industry because of the innovated and creative work that is consistently produced. Customization and editing services for families, funeral homes and businesses are also provided as well as professional printing services. “We are here to assist as much or as little as our customer needs”, said Rachel, a senior customer service team member. “You can either edit the templates yourself or utilize our customization service option in which we enter the information for you within a 1-2 hour time frame.”
