How to Make a Funeral Program On A Mac
Posted by Admin on Mar 19th 2019
Mac users are growing since the past decade and the MAC computer is an ever popular way to create funeral programs. Because the MAC is well known for its ease of use and user-friendly functionality, it is the ideal tool to create a quick funeral program. The best way to do this and save as much time as possible is to use a template specifically compatible on the MAC.
I recommend using Apple Pages as it is made by Apple and therefore works seamlessly on this platform. Although Apple no longer provides a free trial of Pages®, it can be bought and downloaded for a very reasonable price of $20. Believe me, it is worth the investment and once you use Pages®, you will never go back using Microsoft Word again!
I am a die hard MAC user and have been using Pages since its inception into the MAC world. I know pretty much everything there is to know about it. Expertise in our customer service is a key component when looking for a template vendor online. Not only are we online but we also have a bonafide retail store in North Dallas. So you can even stop in, bring your laptop and have us help you with your template.
We are a firm believer in making your creation of the funeral bulletin or program as easy as possible which is one reason we started creating funeral program templates for Pages.

Apple Pages does not vary much in the interface from version to version, unlike Word. I guess you can say its the “Word” of the MAC world but I say, it’s better than Word. So even if you’ve never used it, don’t hesitate if your on a MAC because you have us to help and teach you.

Using a software that Apple itself has created as an alternative to Microsoft Word is key to making your life easier as you work on a MAC.

Pages® is a graphic program with very basic tools that create really nice programs, funeral brochures, and other marketing material. Our templates for Pages® are .pages documents although the software can also open up Word documents. You can also export to a Word document if you must have your final program in WORD.
You can literally drag and drop your photos into the Pages® template unlike Microsoft's software where there is a procedure you must follow in order to insert your photos correctly in the template. There is built in cropping tools and preset frames if you want to add more embellishments. The final funeral program can be exported to a PDF file as well as a WORD document. Everything is so handy, I know once you work with it, you will be hooked and will love it!
