Using Tribute Stationery to Honor Your Loved One

When a loved one passes away, there is no escaping the accompanying grief as you trudge through the funeral planning process and into the service itself. There are many elements to consider when making the arrangements, and whether or not to use personalized tribute stationery as a way to honor the deceased is one of these items.

Tribute stationery typically includes a picture of the deceased, the date of birth and date of death, along with other relevant facts or tidbits the family would like to include. While the stationery used at a funeral may seem like a trivial detail, it can have a significant impact on every person that attends the service.

Special Memories Moving Forward

The personalized tribute stationery you choose is about details, but it also serves as a keepsake for those in attendance, and a valuable tool for triggering special memories in the future. Naturally, it is designed to honor the passing of someone special, but when you look at it in the future, you can remember the good times you shared together and what that person meant to your life.

An Array of Choices

You can choose from a variety of tribute stationery products by adding not only photos but also emblems, or anything else that your loved one held dear to them. There are register books you can personalize, memorial folders, thank you cards, prayer cards, bookmarks, life journey candles and memory cards. This may seem overwhelming, but with these choices also comes an opportunity to choose the perfect stationery to honor your loved one. You can also include information about interests, hobbies, traits, career or just about anything else you feel would speak to the true nature of the person being honored.

Funerals are never easy to attend for family or friends; it is a difficult time for everyone. Many people tend to gravitate to memory boards in which photos are posted, and memories are shared by all. Having personalized tribute stationery makes it that much more special, especially when those leaving can walk away with something. It is human nature to want to have a memento or a keepsake, and personalized stationery helps to fulfill that need.

Finding the Right Provider

Having access to a high-quality provider of tribute stationery makes all the difference in the world when organizing a funeral. At Moles, we use Frazer Consultants to meet these needs.
