Print on high quality white or off white paper. Go to Kinkos and show them what you would like. They will have a book full of paper samples. Color photos will print best on white paper.
Consider printing the lyrics to your loved ones favorite songs in the memorial program. When you play the song at the service you can encourage people to sing along and refer to the lyrics in the program. View our list of memorial songs and lyrics.
Use a high quality laser printer. If you don’t have one, make your life easier and have Kinkos or a local printer print it for you. Photos look much better on high quality printers.
If you have an event at the service such as a dove or butterfly release, incorporate a photo of a dove or butterfly into the program.
If you follow these few tips, I think you’ll find designing the memorial service folder or program to be much easier and the outcome will be a program as beautiful and unique as the loved one you lost.
