A memorial bookmark is a tangible funeral program printed memorial that is created in honor of a loved one's memory. It is also a practical and loving memory keepsake used as a book placeholder. It can contain a lovely sentiment poem or tribute, as well as a loved one's photo and personalized text. Memorial bookmarks can be laminated and tasseled for a final presentation, or simply printed on cardstock weighted paper.

To create a memorial bookmark from scratch, some setup work is required prior to entering your information. You will first need to determine the size and cut lines for the memorial bookmark, as there will be four bookmarks per sheet of paper. Each bookmark will need to be cut for separation after printing and may be laminated and tasseled during assembly.

Once the cut lines have been determined and measured, open the software you want to use and place the ruler line for each cut line. You will need to set up the software document for the front and back of the memorial bookmark respectively. Once you have the format complete, you can add any other elements such as the background, text, and photo boxes. It is important to be very familiar with the software prior to starting your layout to avoid or minimize any technical issues that may arise.

Setting up a memorial bookmark layout from scratch can be time-consuming and complicated, especially since there are multiples on a sheet. If you'd like to get a jump start on the process, utilizing a memorial bookmark template is by far the best option. The Funeral Program Site offers ready-to-use memorial bookmark funeral program templates available for immediate download. We have taken care of the technical setup for four bookmarks per sheet and funeral program background design, so all you need to do is begin entering your text and photo.
