Word templates come pre-designed and formatted. There are text and photo boxes already placed for you which takes building the foundation of the design out of the equation. This time saving idea is a must for those seeking a great shortcut to production.

Here are the steps for creating the perfect program:

1. Decide on a theme or program design. There are hundreds of designs to choose from in our online store, select one that is an extension of your loved one's personality or likes.

2. Determine and gather what you would like to include in the program such as photographs, text relating to the life biography, poetry. Then decide what type of layout would best fit all of your information and photo(s). If you have a lot of text, you may want to consider creating a booklet instead of a single letter size program. This will enable you to have more space to accommodate what you need.

3. Decide whether or not you have the time to put it together yourself. If you do not, enlist the help of a friend or use our store's customization service. You do not have to take this on yourself if you simply do not have the time or resources.

4. Decide where you want to have the final program printed. You can choose to print it on your own home printer, take it to any office supply store or use our professional printing services.
