Funeral Orders of Service

An order of service is a stapled booklet which provides a running order of events. They are given to guests as they arrive, or sent to those who are unable to attend, and they can be kept as mementos. 

We specialise in printing Order of Service booklets for funerals, with prices to suit all budgets. 

Most importantly, we can print these quickly, within a couple of days in most cases and even the same day in an emergency.

  • A5 folded, stapled booklets on high quality card and paper
  • Free templates that you can download and edit to suit your needs.

Small orders of service tend to be 4 pages, which we print as a single sheet of A4 card scored and folded in half. Most people have colour photos on the front and back cover, and black & white text on the other, which works out quite cost effective.  For religious ceremonies with lots of readings and hymns, we can print booklets up 48 pages long, in colour or black & white.

There's no ‘funeral surcharge' on any of our prices, and we sell direct to funeral directors, celebrants, graphic designers, and print resellers. 

For more information, please see our file tips below, or our blog tutorial on what to put in a funeral order of service.

How it works

  • We'll need to have a file that is set up and ready to print (see specifications in next tab).
  • Simply work out the number of booklets you would like, the print and paper type, and Add to Basket.
  • The number of pages is how many A5 'sides' there are in the finished booklet.
  • Folded stapled booklets need 8 pages or more. A 4 page file will be printed as a single sheet of A4 card folded to A5. 
  • You'll be able to upload your file and write any instructions during checkout

We don't print anything automatically. We'll check your order and email you a PDF proof for you to approve first. This shows the final layout as it would print, and allows you to check for any mistakes. 

Once you approve your PDF proof, we'll get started and email you once we've dispatched your order. The turnaround is 2-3 working days.

File Types

We need a ready-to-print file in simple A4 or A5 pages in reading order. We recommend using a minimum of font size 12. A Word Document is perfectly fine, though PDFs are better.

Please don't try to lay it out as a booklet (ie: putting 2 pages on 1 sheet), as we will do all the 'booklet making' on our end. 

This means that if you want an 8-page booklet, your Word document should have 8 pages. The number of pages must always be divisible by 4, so a 6-page document would need 2 blanks to make 8.





For your convenience, here are some downloadable templates that you can edit yourself:

Funeral Template (8 Pages)

Remember, we don't print anything automatically and we will always email you a PDF proof first before we start. 

If you would like us to design your booklet (or even just the cover using one of the examples above), we can do so for an additional £10 per page.  Please email us with your requirements.


  • White 250gsm silk is a smooth white card, with a slight matt finish to it.
  • Cream 250gsm bond is a beige uncoated card, with a more of a normal paper texture. 
  • 100gsm paper is the best value for inside pages. We can also print the inside pages on 160gsm (thin card) for a higher quality, more substantial finish.
  • Satin bows are little 7mm bows that we hand glue on the front cover in a place that you choose. Click for choice of colours
  • A5 Booklets are printed on A4, folded in half, stapled twice down the fold (saddle stitched), and trimmed.

Turnaround time

  • Our standard printing turnaround time is 2-3 working days.  If the service is sooner, please let us know and we will prioritise your order.  If you are able to collect, we could even have it ready the same day.
