Employing the use of a funeral program template is a great approach to creating professional quality funeral bulletins. Here are some tips we’ve summarized when using any template for the memorial or funeral service.
Download your template to a familiar place on your hard drive such as the desktop for fast and easy location.
Always copy the original template first before editing so you’ll leave the original intact. Remember to save your template frequently and rename it if you have to. Also, have all your pertinent information ready that you will want to include.
Scan photos and type up the related text so you can just copy it straight into your template. If you will be incorporating photos, crop them after scanning before you add them to your template to remove excess space. Always ask the printers for a proof to review and give you enough time for assembly or putting it all together.
