Prayer cards were once a standard, one-size-fits-all item. A name and some dates were all the personalization available.
Today, they have become much more. With funeral software like Tribute Center, more personalization means they can now truly be meaningful keepsakes.
Evolution of Prayer Cards
Whether you call them prayer cards, memorial cards, or another term, these small items are beautiful mementos. They typically have your loved one’s birth and death dates, along with other elements that you choose.
Prayer cards were once imprinted with a prayer and a sacred picture. There weren’t a lot of personalization options — although the cards might have been beautiful, they were all much the same.
Today, a prayer card can have text, a photo of the deceased, prose, or poetry. The selection is only limited by the imagination.
Now a prayer card can become a fitting keepsake for mourners to carry away from a viewing or funeral service. It’s the personalization that makes the difference.
Personalization with Funeral Software
Tribute Center enables a family to select a theme that can be used throughout their funeral stationery. There are themes to match every hobby, occupation, interest, and religious affiliation.
Along with the choices of photos and text, the funeral director can embellish with a variety of fonts and other design elements. This unique theme selection isn’t available with all types of funeral software. Only Tribute Center can boast a selection of more than 500 themes!
Today’s funeral software allows for visually-pleasing placement of the elements used for the prayer cards. Center a photo or artwork, and arrange the text around it in a flowing, circular pattern.
Or, choose several photos and place them at the top and bottom, with text in the center of the card. Print both sides of the card, with a sacred picture on one side and text with a photo of your loved one on the other. The possibilities are endless.
Imagine the impact of such a personalized prayer card printed with a child’s face and poem, or a card bearing a photo of a loved one above her favorite prayer or sacred text. Whether the prose or poetry derives from a specific religion or is non-specific yet spiritual, a personalized prayer card is a beautiful, uplifting tribute to a life.
Fast and Easy Personalization
The best part about using Tribute Center to create prayer cards, aside from the sheer amount of personalization options, is how easy it is to use.
The prayer card templates allow funeral professionals to print eight per sheet. That means creating almost 100 prayer cards requires only a dozen sheets of paper.
What makes the prayer cards unique is that they are printed on the completely blank stock. Whether you are looking to create a traditional prayer card or one with various scenes to represent the person’s life, Tribute Center can accomplish it all.
Using a standard laser printer or office color copier, the designs are not limited in any manner. Many prayer cards are standard from one funeral home to another, but creating prayer cards from blank stock changes the game. There are many different themes, images, and backgrounds that come pre-designed so that the entire prayer card is unique.
Customizing is not as difficult as you may think. Funeral software like Tribute Center makes the process much less time-consuming. All you need to do is select a template and click a few buttons.
Creating custom prayer cards takes just minutes, but the keepsakes created will be cherished by families forever. Everyone who attends a funeral or memorial service will want one and mourners will hold onto these distinctive prayer cards for years.
