The single fold or sometimes referred to as a bifold fold funeral program is a traditional letter size dimensions of 8.5 x 11 with one fold down the center of the paper. The program offers a 4-page or 4-panels of room for text after its in its folded state, thus producing four halves. Thus being printed on one sheet of letter size being printed front and back.
This is the standard program that is typically used for funeral service programs. It is the most common sizing since the paper is readily available and when folded its compact 5.5 x 8.5 size is convenient for carry. It also provides some versatility as far as the layout is concerned. You can enlarge the paging by increasing it to a full 8-page layout and adding more pages to the format.
The single fold funeral program is also the common size for most bulletin sizes. On this type of program style, you have plenty of room for a photo of the deceased on the front cover, obituary writeup, order of service information, and an additional poem, scripture, or song lyrics for the back page. You can also note pall bearer information and family acknowledgements.
These types of programs are easy to fold and can be done manually by you or by a local office supply store via a folding machine. Often this can be achieved after they finish printing. You can also opt to print the programs yourself since folding the programs is a fold done directly down the exact middle of the page.
