Orders of service
Detailing everything that will happen during the service, this is the most important piece of stationery. There is no set format for this. Some people choose to keep it very simple, others like to include lots of photos. Along with the celebrant taking the service, we will help you to plan it all out.
Other mourning stationery
We can also produce and supply thank you cards, bookmarks, remembrance cards, prayer cards, books of condolence, attendance cards, large printed photos and photo books. A few examples are shown below.
To help you with your order of service, we have put together a booklet that offers some guidance. It includes some options for prayers, poems and readings as well as advice on how to write a eulogy.

You can of course provide your own stationery and we will be happy to help you with the content. Your Funeral Director will let you know when we need to have any items that are to be used at the funeral.
If you want something unique that we can’t produce internally, our local printing firm can make it happen. Special paper and card stocks, special inks, die-cutting and foiling are just some of the things they can do. If you do want anything special produced we will need to know as early as possible to check if it can be done in time for the service.
Our modern energy-efficient printers use wax-based toners which have a much lower environmental impact than traditional toner. The papers we use to produce funeral stationery are also sustainably sourced and accredited to help us further reduce our impact.
