How To Make Funeral Program Booklets

Welcome to the Funeral Program Site, home of the largest selection of DIY templates, printed memorials, and personalized and loving memory keepsake products. In this video, we will share how to make a funeral program into a funeral booklet. Before we get started, please take a moment to like and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Doing so enables us to continue making valuable content to equip you during a time of loss.

Funeral booklets are centerfold funeral programs containing multiple pages and can be found in three sizes. The pages or sheets of printed paper are held together by two center staples. You can create the funeral programs booklet from scratch or by using a Funeral Program Site ready-made template.

If you want to make it from scratch, some setup work is required prior to entering your information. First, determine the size and amount of pages you want to create. Then, take two or more blank sheets of paper and fold them in half. Open the sheet and begin measuring the location of each fold line from left to right.

Next, open the software you want to use and place your ruler line on the fold. You'll need to set up the software document for each page you want to create. Be mindful that in some software, the order of the sheets displayed will not be the order in which it folds. You will need to do some trial and error to determine the flow of the pages. It is important that you are very familiar with the software prior to starting your layout to avoid or minimize any technical issues that may arise.

Setting up a funeral program booklet from scratch can be time-consuming and will get more complicated the more pages you add. If you'd like to get a jump start on the process, utilizing a funeral booklet template is the best option. The Funeral Program Site offers all sizes of funeral booklet templates ready for immediate download. We've taken care of the technical setup, page flow, and background design, so all you need to do is begin entering your funeral program text and photos.
