Funeral Program Template Layouts

Funeral program templates are a quick and easy way to make professional funeral booklet and homegoing programs.  When choosing a template, you will need to select both a design (or theme) and a layout.  For information on choosing a design, see our article on funeral program template designs, or choosing a design.  You will also need to select a funeral program template layout.  The layout refers to how the elements of the program are assembled in the program, the way the program is folded and the size of the paper.  There are many different paper sizes and layout styles available to help you create the perfect program.

How to choose funeral program template layouts

How much information you will be including in your program?

The funeral program template layout may depend on the amount of information that you will be including in your program.  If you just have a very basic program with just service information, a funeral order of service, a short obituary and maybe a poem, you may want to use a very simple, single fold program on standard sized paper.  If you have lots of information such as order of service, longer obituary, many poems, photo collages, funeral tributes or personalized notes, you may want to go with a program on larger paper, such as a tabloid size (11″x17″) or with a multiple page template.  If you don’t have a lot of information, consider a small card-sized template.

Do you want your program to have a more creative design?

The layout can contribute to the overall design of the program.  If you want a funeral program that’s unique and more contemporary, consider a different layout and fold such as a graduated or “step” fold, or even a horizontal fold programs.  These different programs give added design and style to your program.

How much time and money do you want to spend?

If you are short on time, you may want to consider a very simple layout that comes on standard paper, and is easy to print and fold.  The single (bifold) funeral program template is very simple.  It prints on one page and folds down the middle.  If you have more time to spend (such as when planning a memorial or celebration of life service) you can choose more elaborate layouts and folds.
