For years, families have used memory tables and photo displays as a way to personalize the funeral service and tell the story of an individual’s lifetime. Most of these tributes are homemade and can look awkward, detracting from the beauty of a memorial service. However, there is a new resource that funeral professionals can now turn to in order to help a family create a beautiful, lasting, tribute to honor their loved ones; FuneralBanners.com.
FuneralBanners.com was created by Chris Byhre, an expert in the graphic design and display industry who first saw the need for a more formal tribute when a friend’s mother passed away. “The family was putting photos on to a corkboard that was to be set on an easel at the memorial service. While the sentiment was heartfelt, the actual presentation was cluttered and not very attractive. That’s when I decided to use my exhibit and display expertise and resources to create a photo montage on printed banners,” says Byhre.
Byhre took his friend’s family photos and matched them with inspirational words and an attractive graphic background. The montage was then printed on a 36” wide by 78” tall fabric canvas, using a special high quality image printer. The montage print was then attached to a retractable stand and was put on display during the service. “The reaction from the family and funeral home was really wonderful. Everyone at the service felt that my funeral banner was an elegant expression of the spirit and personality of my friend’s mother,” says Byhre. “I realized I needed to help other families create the same kind of tribute,” he added.
FuneralBanners.com has now automated the funeral banner design and production process. Funeral professionals can choose from an array of background and text choices. They can upload photos via the web to the FuneralBanners.com website and can have a professionally printed high-quality banner delivered to any service anywhere in the country within 24-36 hours. The banners can be ordered with or without a stand offering the option for the funeral professional to provide the stand and for the family to simply keep the banner after the service.
“I’m really proud of what we’ve created at FuneralBanners.com,” says Byhre. “Our banners are not only beautiful sentiments that make any service more elegant and memorable, but they also serve as meaningful lasting family keepsakes.”
Pricing for a funeral banner begins at under $300 and includes custom printing and delivery. To learn more visit http://www.FuneralBanners.com.
