Memorial keepsakes are a tangible connection to those we've lost, allowing us to honor and remember them in a physical form. These items, whether they're cards or other objects, become cherished possessions that carry the weight of memories, stories, and emotions. They're not just about remembering the past; they're about keeping the spirit of loved ones alive for the future.
The Journey of Remembrance Cards
Remembrance cards have evolved from simple memory tokens to more elaborate and personalized keepsakes. They serve as a direct reflection of the person being honored, often customized with heartfelt messages, meaningful images, and quotes that speak to the loss. Each card is a tangible representation of a life and a relationship, holding a special place in the hearts of those who receive them.
Crafting Meaningful Remembrance Cards
Personalization at Its Core
Creating a remembrance card is a personal act, one that involves selecting elements that truly represent the individual's life and essence. The process is about more than just design; it's about capturing the person's spirit in a lasting way.

The Role of Funeral Prayer Cards in Memorial Practices
A Comforting Presence
Funeral prayer cards are a special kind of remembrance card focused on spiritual significance. They often include prayers or verses that offer comfort to grieving people, acting as a source of solace and peace during a difficult time.
Our Funeral Prayer Cards have space for a photo of your loved one on the front, plus a short quote or verse below their name and dates. The back of the card is often used to write a prayer but the text is fully editable so you can add whatever you feel would be most fitting or use the sample text included, which reads:
Prayer cards are valued keepsakes for many, serving as a lasting reminder of the person's life and the shared experiences. They're often kept for years, treasured as a part of personal and family history.
The larger prayer card template prints double-sided on one sheet of Letter size paper (or A4 paper) and has four prayer cards per sheet. When cut out, the finished size of each prayer card is 4.25 inches (length) x 2.5 inches (width).
The smaller template also prints double-sided on one sheet of Letter size paper (or A4 paper) but has six prayer cards per sheet. When cut out, the finished size of each prayer card is 3.5 inches (length) x 2 inches (width).
The Considerate Exchange of Condolence Cards
Sympathy Expressed with Dignity
The act of giving condolence cards is a time-honored way to show empathy and support. These cards are a meaningful expression of shared grief and an acknowledgement of loss.
Condolence cards or bereavement cards, can either be distributed to guests at the funeral service or mailed after the event. This is a particularly thoughtful way to include friends and family who couldn’t make it to the service, and the condolence card could be mailed together with a thank you card or copy of the funeral program as keepsakes to be treasured for years to come.
Share a Memory Cards: Honoring the Story of a Life
A Tapestry of Memories
Share a Memory cards, also called Tribute cards celebrate an individual's life story, highlighting the unique journey and experiences that defined them. Funeral guests write special memories of your loved one on individual cards that you can keep and treasure forever.
As these cards encourage the sharing of personal memories and stories, they create a sense of shared history and connection among those who knew the person. Our Share a Memory cards are 6x4 inches and come with an 8 x 10-inch sign that can be positioned next to the cards on a table at the service. Both the sign and cards are non-editable PDF files so all you need to do is download the files after purchase, then print and trim the cards to size.
