Visual Tribute Presentation

Images can speak a thousand words, they are snapshots that culminate the most important moments of a persons life and are a visual representation of the places, events and people that mattered most to your loved one. It is therefore natural to wish to include a visual tribute in dedication of your loved one. 

We are able to produce visual tributes from hard copy or digital images up to 120 images. Please use the provided video as an example of the style of visual tributes we produce.

Printed Tributes

Printed tributes can serve a practical purpose on the day of the Service advising guests of the Order of Service, or they can serve a more sentimental value through the form of a keepsake for guests to remember someone by. 

We are able to design and print Service Sheets, Photo Cards and Bookmarks, working with original or electronic images. We also custom design all printed material for each family meaning the design is reflective or the personalization we deliver throughout the Service.
