A funeral is both a place for mourning and a place for celebrating the life of a loved one who has passed. Funerals bring family and friends together to support one another and to share stories and memories of a dearly beloved person. The sharing of stories and photographs is what helps keep the good memories we have alive, and when they are preserved in a funeral guest book, they can be carried with us for years to come. At The Funeral Program Site, we offer such a wide variety of customizable options and styles of guest books so that you can create an entirely personalized lasting testament to the life of your loved one.
First, choose the binding style that best suits your vision. We offer hardcover perfect bind books, either 8” x 8” or 8” x 10” in size and with the option to be wrapped in linen for a softer cover feel, wire bound books, 3-ring binders, and foil stamped books. Our perfect bind guest books are certainly the most diverse and versatile of our options, as they are a customer favorite, but all of our funeral guest book styles are available in a wide range of designs, with customizable options.
Many of our guest books are offered with a predesigned base. For example, you can get our hardcover wire bind books with spiritual covers, floral covers, candlelight covers, natural covers and more. These guest books are 8” x 10” in size and can be ordered in either glossy or matte finishes. Inside are 50 pages for displaying your loved one’s personal history and for the guests to sign in and leave condolence messages or detail special memories they have of that person. You can choose to add personalization to the cover of your guest book when you order, adding up to three lines of text for your loved one’s name, date of birth, or anything else you choose. You can also add up to three photos to the cover if you wish.
Our 8”x8” and 8”x10” hardcover perfect bind guest books are built much the same, with your choice between glossy and matte finishes, the option to add up to three photos, up to three lines of text to the front covers, and 50 inside pages to be filled with details about your loved one and the friends and family who came to remember them.
If you would like to have more inside pages and more customization opportunities, you may instead wish to order one of our beautiful 3-ring binder guest books. These binders feature ½” rings inside and are capable of holding up to 110 sheets of standard letter sized paper. We include our signature pages in each binder, but you can choose to add more to your funeral guest book, such as photo collages, poetry, and anything else you’d like. If you wish to add a photo of your loved one to the front of the binder, we will happily merge it seamlessly with the backdrop of your choice, giving the book a smooth and dignified appearance.
For something even more refined, you may wish to consider a foil stamped leatherette guest book. We offer these 8” x 10.25” leather-bound books in five colors – Black, White, Deep Red, Navy, and Forest Green – in either landscape or portrait orientation. On the front cover, we will imprint your personalized text in either silver or gold foil lettering, in addition to our memorial word art should you choose a design that includes it. You may also opt for a guest book with a photo window to display your favorite photo of your loved one.
Similarly, our linen guest books can be ordered in a wide variety of colors, including Lavender, Gray, Teal, or Tan, and come with or without a photo window. You can choose either a landscape or portrait orientation sized 8” x 8” or 8” x 10.” Like our other books, the linen guest books and the foil stamped leatherette guest books are filled with pages for personal history, guest sign-in, and memories or condolences.
Finally, if our predesigned guest books aren’t quite what you’re looking for, you can choose instead to order a full complete custom book and personalize the entire thing. We offer these fully customizable books in a perfect bind hardcover, either 8” x 8” or 8” x 10,” and allow you to choose any of our background designs for the cover as well as emblazoning a photo on the front. Choose your preferred finish and up to three personalized lines of text and completely customize the inside pages. There are 50 pages inside each custom funeral guest book for you to design. Include an obituary or a biography, pages of photographs, art pieces or poetry, prayers and scripture, and anything else you can imagine. If you aren’t certain what you’d like to include in your custom book, we are happy to help suggest ideas if you ask. We understand that this may be a difficult time for you and your family, and we wish to help as much or as little as you desire. After the service, your book can be kept or gifted as a memorial of your loved one for years to come. For more information, reach out to us today. We are always here to help.
