Welcome to the Funeral Program Site Questions and Answers video series. Today's question is: Can I print my funeral program on card stock paper?
You can print any of our funeral program templates on any weight paper you choose. Card stock paper is a heavier weight and is called card stock because it has a similar feel to the weight of a greeting card. However, if you choose to print your funeral program on card stock paper, there are a few things to consider.
Firstly, the heavier weight of card stock paper can cause the paper fold to crack. This can result in a less professional and neat funeral program appearance for your funeral program. To minimize this issue, we recommend scoring the paper prior to folding. Scoring is the process of creating a crease in the paper that allows it to fold easier and results in a better-looking line. This can be achieved by using an indentation tool to create a ridge in the paper. Scoring helps to minimize any cracking on the folded edge and provides the best presentation for your funeral program.
Alternatively, if you prefer not to use card stock paper, we recommend using a 32-pound paperweight. This is the thickest paperweight for a funeral program you can use without using card stock. This type of paper can usually be found at your local paper supply store and provides a good balance between thickness and flexibility.
