Frequently Asked Questions

If you can't find the information you need below, please send us a message.

How do I download my template?

You can download your template directly from the checkout page after the payment has been processed. To download your files to a computer (not a phone or tablet), click the Download Now button once and wait for your files to download. This may take a few minutes depending on your internet speed. Please note: Your templates will usually be downloaded to your 'Downloads' folder on your computer.

You will also receive an email from Funeral Templates with a link to your checkout page where you can download your files.

It says 'Exceeded Download Limit' on the download page but I haven't received my templates. What should I do?

This can happen if you click the download button multiple times before it’s finished downloading and then the system thinks you’ve reached the 5 download limit. Depending on your internet speed, it can take a minute or two to download so please wait a minute and then check your Downloads folder. If the files have still not downloaded, send us a message and we will email the templates to you directly.

I received a Zip file. How do I open my template?

When you download your template it will arrive in a Zip file (this is a file that contains your Microsoft Word or PowerPoint template plus the PDF help guide). Double click on the Zip file to open it and then double click on the folder to access your files. To make sure your Microsoft Word template opens in Word, we recommend you open Microsoft Word first, then click File>Open and select the Word template from your Downloads folder (open Powerpoint first for PowerPoint templates).

What software/program do I need to edit the templates?

You can edit the Funeral Programs, Prayer CardsBookmarksInvitations and Thank You Cards using Microsoft Word on a desktop or laptop computer. Microsoft Word is available for PC or Mac (the Mac version is called 'Microsoft Word for Mac').

Can I add more text?

Yes. All the text is editable so you can edit, move, or delete any of the text. To add any additional text boxes, it's best to copy and paste one that is already in the template as it has been set up correctly. 

Can I add more photos?
