Creating personalized funeral stationery in-house has never been easier and order of service printing. Reading that last sentence, you may say, we’ve been personalizing funeral stationery at our funeral home for years. But, chances are, the personalization options your funeral home was able to provide were probably pretty limited. Most funeral homes have three, maybe four options for a theme — if you could call the designs themes. The selections aren’t so much as a theme, but a generic selection of doves, angels, and maybe a sunset.
With today’s funeral stationery software, creating a truly personalized, entire line of coordinating pieces in-house is easy, and the options are endless. Here are three great reasons to use funeral software:
Ultimate Theme Personalization- Funeral stationery software offers more than five hundred coordinating themes to assist client families in the personalization of their loved ones life celebration. While some stationery companies offer just one standard template, or they have you stock paper for each different theme, using funeral software, your clients can select a theme that best depicts their loved ones personality, hobbies, career, interests or religious attachment.
Each theme includes a layout for a funeral register book, memorial folder, prayer card, acknowledgement, book mark, DVD tribute video packaging, and a candle and
Order of service printing. All the themes are stored electronically. When a client family selects a theme, you simply put the blank stock paper into a full-color printer and print as many as you need on-demand.
One Time Data Entry- With some stationery, for each piece it is necessary to re-enter the deceased’s name, dates and other information. With the latest funeral stationery software it automatically connects to your funeral management software program. There’s no duplicate entry, no wasted time, just push a few buttons and you’re done.
Affordable- Because all the stationery items are printed from blank stock, all you need to do is inventory blank paper.
Order of service printing, No high over-head in stocking multiple themes!
Not only can you provide client families with more than five hundred options for themes without stocking pre-printed paper, printers are available at an extremely affordable rate. For less than sixty dollars a month, and a low-cost per page price of eleven and one-half cents for color prints and two cents for black and white, your funeral home can utilize a printer that includes toner, any repairs or maintenance, as well as help desk support seven days a week, twenty-four hours and day, three hundred sixty-five days a year.
To be ready to customize a funeral service means everything to a family.
The simplest method of personalizing a funeral candle is to use a funeral software program that has pre-formatted templates that can print the inserts for the holder. In this way, it’s possible to create any number of inserts from photos, images and text. With a square holder, the candle can display four different inserts. For example, a favorite photo on one side, an image representing a hobby on a second side, and text on the third and fourth sides. It’s a simple matter to change the photos and text to make a different memorial candle for each family member.
Personalized memorial candles make thoughtful gifts for anyone, but especially for those unable to attend the funeral service. Adding photos and text that are meaningful to each person is a lovely way to honor a connection to the deceased. Candles placed in holders can be burned without disturbing the printed effects, making the customized holders a truly lasting memorial.
