A blank card and a fountain pen


Written by Matt Frazer


Funeral stationery is evolving. With new technology advances, personalized funeral stationery has made huge strides. Funeral professionals now have the ability to offer client families an almost unlimited selection for a truly personalized and complete set of funeral stationery. This new technology has eased the worries of cost, inventory, the difficulty of production, and timeliness for funeral homes as well.


Traditionally, a funeral home would purchase pre-printed paper for the stationery. A funeral home may have only had a few options for families to choose from because of the cost to stock and inventory each design and each individual item. Re-orders had to be managed and timed perfectly so as not to run out of a particular item. To add to the issue, suppliers required minimum orders, which meant large, expensive outlays. Managing the inventory, repetitively inputting the deceased’s information for each piece of stationery, and controlling costs consumed large blocks of time.


The prehistoric days of funeral stationery are gone for good. Today, funeral stationery can be quickly and easily printed on demand from blank, perforated stock using software-driven layouts. Now, client families are able to choose from a wide variety of personalization options and funeral homes no longer need to inventory pre-printed stock. Everything needed — funeral register book pages, memorial folders, prayer cards, acknowledgments, bookmarks, signs, DVD packaging, and even candles all can be printed in this manner.


Not only does the new funeral software include more than 500 pre-designed and pre-formatted design layouts, the software also is compatible with certain funeral home management software, such as SRS Computing. Therefore, funeral home client families receive a high level of personalization with templates for virtually every interest, hobby, occupation, and religious background included. Funeral homes are able to input the deceased’s information once and the stationery software does the rest.


Using the funeral home’s own printing equipment, this print-on-demand stationery is a particularly attractive feature for not locking a funeral home into printing a particular sum if it isn’t necessary. With this type of specialized software, a funeral home can print only what’s needed, when it’s needed, and know the result will be the most professional, low-cost, and fully customized funeral printing available.


Funeral stationery has always been an important facet of the funeral service. The stationery not only serves as a keepsake for those who were present at the service, it also allows funeral home client families to better honor, celebrate, remember, and tell the life story. To have a solution that can quickly, easily, and cost-effectively create the most personalized funeral stationery is to be able to offer the best possible keepsake for client families.
