Some families choose to laminate a printed memorial such as a bookmark for a few reasons. The lamination enables the memorial bookmark to be encapsulated within a heavy plastic sealing the air out, therefore keeping the paper within in tact, wrinkle proof and often from yellowing. Over time the paper can age without lamination so this additional process takes an extra step to promote a much slower aging or eliminates it completely.
Create a laminated memorial bookmark very easily by using any of The Funeral Program Site’s professionally designed memorial bookmark templates. We have the largest selection on the web! They match our beautiful funeral programs designs, if you care to keep the theme going through the other printed memorials you may want to produce.
You may choose to laminate the bookmarks to preserve them longer over time. Laminating a bookmark is easy. After printing, simply laminate the entire sheet and then cut them individually as needed. You will need a paper cutter if you are going to do this on your own.
You can do the lamination yourself, or take have the office supply store laminate them after printing. The copy shop will charge you an additional fee for this on top of the printing cost, so you may want to find out what they charge before deciding to laminate.
