Memorial cards have been a part of Irish culture for over a century. Originally, they were printed on simple cardstock and featured a religious image on one side and a prayer or poem on the other. These early memorial cards were distributed at funerals to provide mourners with a keepsake to remember their loved one by. Over time, memorial cards have evolved to include more personal touches, such as photos of the deceased and custom designs. Today, they are often designed to reflect the personality and interests of the person who has passed away. Despite these changes, the fundamental purpose of memorial cards has remained the same: to provide comfort and solace to those who are grieving.
When it comes to designing a memorial card, there are many factors to consider. The design should be personal and reflective of the person who has passed away. This can be achieved through the use of photos, personal quotes, or even their favorite color scheme. It is also important to consider the tone of the memorial card. Some families may prefer a more somber design, while others may want something more uplifting and celebratory. Regardless of the tone, the design should be respectful and appropriate for the occasion. Finally, it is important to consider the practical aspects of the design. The card should be easy to read, with a clear font and legible text. It should also be durable enough to withstand handling and display.
You can also rest assured that your Memorial Cards will be printed on the latest print machinery, heavy card stock & gloss laminated for vividness & durability. Once the cards have been printed, they can be distributed to mourners at the funeral or before the 1st annivesary. It is also common to mail memorial cards to friends and family who were unable to attend the service.
