The Printroom we understand that bereavement is a very difficult time and we are here to assist you in creating personalised funeral order of service.
Our Funeral Order of Service’s are printed on a 250gsm Silk card for a 4page order of service. If you are having more pages then the inside pages are printed onto a 150gsm Silk Stock.
Each order of Service is scored and double stapled in the spine to create an A5 size booklet.
You can upload your files for printing or if you are local you are always welcome to visit us at our Main office in Bracknell where you can meet one of our specialists to go through your individual requirements.
Organising a funeral is a difficult time for you. At More Than Just Print, we have designed our site to make it as easy as possible to order your Order Of Service. However, we understand that sometimes you may need to speak to someone when ordering. Rather than getting your head around a website. Our online chat is available from 9-5 pm on weekdays. Our phones are also manned 9-5 pm on weekdays. However, if you prefer to speak with someone when ordering please feel free to call us and we will be happy for one of our Account Managers to help you.
What Should an Order of Service Include?
Whether you choose an order of service booklet for funerals, filling up all those pages can be difficult when you are not sure what to include or whether this would be your first time, so we have included a list of what the average order of service funeral booklet includes:
A paragraph about the person
A list of close family members
Any other locations, for reception or wake, for example
A thank you to guests at the back
If you are interested in our invitation booklets, check out our A5 and A6 sizes to give you more of an in-depth description of what more we can offer.
For more information and order of service examples please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected].
How to get started
All we need from you is the text (ideally in Word format, but not essential), plus any images that you wish to use. Images can be supplied digitally via email or wetransfer, or we can scan precious printed photographs and return them to you safely and securely.
On the other hand, all funeral printing comes with proof which will need to be checked and signed before we go to print. We will also check this both in our Pre-Press Department and personally with one of our Account Managers.
We use the latest high-end digital printing presses which reproduce the high quality and sleek photographs specifically handed to us by you.
Therefore the cover is printed on a smooth high-quality 250gsm white card, while the inside pages are a 170gsm. Our booklet maker creases the cover and attaches two staples to produce a professionally finished booklet. Usually, the average order of service booklet is between 4-12 pages for the inside.
If you are interested in memory boards for the funeral, these are usually designed the same as the front of your Order Of Service, In conclusion, these would be printed onto a thick board and displayed in the front entrance at the church or at the wake. Usually displayed on an easel. Please see our professional foamex boards.
If you do not have a design for your Funeral Order Of Service we have our own Graphic Design Studio in-house. Pick the Artwork portion and we will create your Order of Service For you. Our designers will turn your idea into a fitting Order Of Service for your loved one. We can create a theme or use an existing simple design. We’ll add photos to the front and various images to the inside for you. Order Of Services includes hymns, poems and Eulogy if needed. Furthermore, funerals are different, so we will make your Order Of Service fitting for the Service.
