We are unable to take new orders until Sunday 23rd August

If the funeral is after 1st September then we will still have time to print and send the orders out in the last week of August. Appologies for any inconvenience.

Why use us

why use a graphic designer

We are experienced at producing a beautiful order of service that will be cherished by family and friends. Unlike other online print services, we are committed to help you through the design process. We help you choose the fonts, space the text out so that it is elegant and easy to read and get the very best out of the photos you supply.

We do all this for a set design charge of £25 which includes supplying multiple PDF proofs supplied to ensure you are happy with the final result.

We are able to work quickly to ensure proofs and print are turned around in time for the ceremony. We take pride in using top quality 350gsm card for a luxurious feel.

We also produce a lovely framed photo of the deceased and supply attendance cards, so you know who was able to attend the service. These are included with every order as a thank you for using

Our graphic design difference

Funeral orders of service need to be easy to read, look great and hopefully represent the style of the person they are for. They will never be thrown away and always be treasured by friends and family.

We ensure that the spacing looks good, the typefaces and colour match the overall design. We send PDF proofs to give the customer a good chance to check their text for errors and omissions.

using fonts

By using Photoshop we can colour correct and remove scratches from pictures. We can’t make a blurry picture sharp, but we can do a lot more than a web template can offer. We adjust all supplied photos to make sure you get the best order of service possible.

We have skilled staff and the latest high-end lithographic and digital printing equipment. In 2011 we moved the business to St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Over the years we have produced hundreds of orders of service for both weddings and funerals. Helping people, when they are having to deal with a very stressful period in their life is very fullfilling and this web site is designed to make that time a little easier.

Producing work for both individuals and well known luxury brands can have its challenges, but the fact that many of our customers return year after year, means we must be doing something right.
