What Goes to Make Up a Good Memorial Card?
It is always produced close friends and family of the person who passed away.
The piece states the date of birth, date of death and where the deceased resided.
A memorial card main focus is to help the bereaved deal with the death by going through the process of assembling the various parts of the card that depict the remembered.
People do not want to make a memorial card but it really does help deal with the grieving process.
It provokes memories and requires the bereaved to Choose a picture.
try to have a great image of the deceased.
Since the photo will always be a reminder of the deceased's life, you should always use a picture from when the deceased was healthy.
Choose a picture which is light, preferably taken outdoors, which will show better skin tones.
The memorial card almost always contains a bible verse or poem that was a favorite of the deceased.
Next to the picture, the phrase "In Loving Memory" or "in Remembrance" the full name of the deceased, along with her birthdate and date of death.
Always remember to design the piece so it look well, remember not to make the piece too design conscious as this will date the piece.
memorial cards are treasured for many years.
Print the cards.
Since memorial cards are loved for years, try not to use light paper stock, Print on card or heavy paper.
I always recommend you print in full colour -which makes the memorial card more beautiful.
An even better solution is to laminate the cards.
Laminating is not necessary but when creating a memorial it may help the piece last longer.
However if the card design is a small page size laminating the card will not give a great result and the card will spring open when folded.
protect by Laminating the card, it will not get soiled by water and it prevents it from tearing and keeps the edges intact over time.
if you have friends in a hot climates use digital print, it will prevent the card from fadeing, and it should keep the colour better.
