Orders of service for a funeral are a deeply personal print run. Honouring a life witihn a few pages is an important part of funeral arrangements.
Choosing the right type of publication depends on how much detail is going into the order of service. In many cases a simple booklet works beautifully particularly if there are many hymns, poems and messages going into it. In other cases a folded card can suffice when the detail focuses on the image of the departed and the card is inended to be displayed during the coming days, weeks and months.
Setting out a life within the pages of a booklet is a humbling job with great importance. Often these orders of service will be kept as a keepsake and will form part of the grieving process. In many cases loved ones will look back on the order of service and eventually smile in celebration of a life lived.
If you are looking for different sizes please check our saddle stitched booklet here.
Please submit artwork as one file in running order.
For example, a 16 page brochure should be supplied as one PDF with 16 pages running in page order.
Booklets must contain a page total divisible by 4.
It is recommended you do not place words, page numbers or images too close to the edges of each page. We would recommend a safe zone on all sides of at least 5mm for Saddle Stitched brochures.
We highly recommend applying lamination to covers with heavy ink coverage. Lamination serves as a protective layer for the cover, preventing any potential marking caused by ink transfer or rubbing off during transit or storage.
