Memorial bookmarks for funerals are a nice token of remembrance for your loved one. It is also a very practical give-a-way for those who attended the ceremony and even for those who haven’t. The bookmarks can be easily mailed for those who were not in attendance, which makes it quite convenient in size.
You can create memorial bookmarks by using templates to produce these keepsakes. Templates generally come 4 bookmarks to a page therefore you won’t have to print as many since your getting more than one on a sheet of paper. You can print them on cardstock or regular paper then laminate them for an even longer keepsake item.
You can even choose to finish them off by attaching a coordinating satin ribbon to the top of the bookmark. To distribute these at the service, you can assign someone to hand them out or you can place them next to the guest book and have your guest take one as after they finish signing in.
You can place a photo of the deceased on the front of the bookmark and a favorite passage, poem or scripture on the reverse side. Generally, under the photo on the front side, the name and dates are noted beneath it. You don’t have to include a photo on the front but rather just have a background image that may have meant something special to the deceased or family members. It’s up to you how you decide to customize it. Templates can facilitate the creation of these bookmarks and save you much time in the process!
