When it comes to the funeral guest book and other memorial products that you select for the service you are planning, your only limitation is your imagination. There are many options. From customized funeral programs and memorial cards to traditional funeral guest books or high tech electronic sign-in systems, the sky is the limit. For most people, traditional items are still the preferred choice.
The Funeral Guest Book
The funeral guest book (also called funeral registry books) serves two primary purposes. The first is to give the family of the deceased a record of those who attended the services or stopped by to pay their respects. For the people who sign the book, it is a way to express the fact that the deceased touched and affected their lives. For both, it is a way to help start the healing process after a loss.
There are many styles of registry books. For some, a simple standard book is perfect. For others, a personalized funeral guest book is preferable. Depending on the funeral provider you select, you may even have access to an electronic sign-in system.
The point is, you have many options and can choose the option that is right for you and your family.
Your funeral provider may be able to supply you with a registry book. Many people prefer to purchase a funeral guest book themselves since it gives them more options. They are widely available online and at many stores that carry stationery products.
Those attending a funeral or memorial service greatly appreciate having a keepsake that reminds them of the person they are honoring. One popular and practical memento that you can provide those who attend the funeral or memorial services is a memorial bookmark. These items can be customized in a variety of ways to make them a very personal remembrance. Photos, dates, and significant poems or quotations can all be included.
When designing funeral bookmarks, many people opt for a spiritual or religious theme but secular versions are popular as well.
When someone close to us dies we look for ways to capture the many memories they leave behind. Luckily, digital printing offers the perfect way to create a permanent tribute to our loved one—a unique one-of-a-kind memorial photo book. Tribute photo books are perfect not only to keep but to share since they can make the ideal gift for someone who is grieving.
Services that help you create and print memorial photo books are widely available online. These systems are simple, quick, and economical. Using online software you upload photos and digital images, arrange them in the pre-designed template that you prefer, select your cover options and send them off for printing. The book will be delivered directly to the address you specify.
A tribute photo book is a perfect addition to a memory table at a funeral or the perfect gift for a loved one of the deceased. They are particularly well suited for siblings and close relatives.
Jewelry is a popular choice for memorial keepsakes. The Memorial Amelia Earrings are a perfect way to keep your loved one close to you. Also, pendants made of glass infused with a portion of cremation ashes are distinctive and very personal jewelry keepsakes.
Memorial Prints & Artwork
A favorite poem or a favorite verse that was meaningful to your loved one makes for a special print or artwork to frame and hang on your wall. You can take a photo and have it made into a photo canvas or quilt suitable for framing and hanging. Shadow boxes are another way of preserving and displaying small items or artwork that serves as a comforting presence in your home.
Memorial Photo Crystals
Favorite photos can be infused in glass or engraved in glass for display at home. These photo displays come in many sizes and are an excellent way to preserve your most treasured photos.
Keepsake urns are a way to store and safeguard special remembrances of your loved one or beloved pet. They will hold an item of jewelry, a dog tag, or a portion of cremation ashes.

Typically, these are made in the form of stepping stones or garden stones with remembrance sayings or phrases engraved or imprinted on them. These are meant for placing in a flower garden, under a tree, or anywhere in your yard. You can often purchase these stones with personalized information.
Angels are a popular choice but you should select any figurine that is meaningful to you. What evokes a memory of your loved one? Did he enjoy golf? Was she particularly fond of turtles? Was he into cooking? Was she an avid tennis player? You can select and display any type of figurine or Knick Knack that gives you pleasant or loving memories each time you look at it.
A memorial candle can be any favorite scent or color that your loved one enjoyed. You may find a special place in your house to display a small grouping of candles, perhaps a trio of candles to represent your love for them in the past, your memory of them today, and your loved one’s legacy that will go on. You can also purchase candles and candle holders that have remembrance phrases imprinted on them.
