Funeral Order of Service, Celebration of Life – in A5 (147mm x 210mm) finished format
Putting together an funeral order of service (or a celebration of life) is quite often a very emotional experience.
The choice of a happy, memorable photograph is often the starting point. And a little bit of humour. The front page Clement Freuds’ order of service said: Clement Freud. Born 24.04.24. Best Before 15.04.09. Designed to make people smile.
Font style and layout is also important – and will differ quite dramatically between a celebration of a younger person and an older one. The A5 format is ideal, most only have 4 pages (i.e. a single sheet folded in half). More elaborate celebrations have 8 pages (some of them blank) and rarely 12.
If you have your design all laid up then great, simply upload your file with your order when you have chosen your options and your celebration of life order of service will be on their way in a jiffy.
We print our funeral order of service on a 250gsm silk card and fold it in the middle. If you select 8 or 12 pages, we print the inner pages on 170gsm silk paper and double staple them on the folded edge.
