If you’re like most funeral directors, you’ve known the frustration of using pre-printed funeral stationery. Reorders need to be managed and timed perfectly so that you don’t run out of a particular selection. To add to the issue, suppliers require minimum orders, which mean large, expensive outlays. Managing the inventory, repetitively inputting the deceased’s information for each piece of stationery, and controlling costs consumes large blocks of time. What a nightmare!


A better option is print-on-demand funeral stationery. With funeral stationery software, a funeral professional has the ability to use blank stock and create a completely customized line of funeral stationery. Simply select which type of stationery to be printed, choose a theme from the hundreds available, enter the appropriate information, and then enter the number you wish to print.


Hundreds of background themes are supplied on the software to reflect hobbies, professions, military or community service, and religious preferences. Adding photographs, custom messages, and obituaries completely personalize the funeral stationery. Once designed and printed, each custom piece of funeral stationery is well coordinated with each other. The theme carries through the entire service and can even be used as the background for a DVD Tribute Video, intro and ending of a funeral webcast, and a funeral keepsake such as a funeral candle.


With print-on-demand funeral stationery software, you also can print the exact number of prayer cards or funeral programs needed. If more guests arrive at the memorial service than planned for, printing a few extra funeral programs or other funeral stationery is no problem at all. Just open the funeral stationery software program, put the blank paper in the printer, and hit the print button. Print-on-demand gives the funeral director total control.


In today’s world, it’s critical to provide your client families with the latest options available in terms of technology and services. Families have other choices for where they purchase their funeral stationery; some even decide to do it themselves. By providing them with a highly customized and complete funeral stationery package at an affordable price — their decision is easier and they are more pleased with the service you offer.


Client families expect to see a variety of funeral stationery and they expect to get exactly what they want. With funeral software and guided layouts, you can offer them exactly what they need.
