Everyone at some time in their life will be affected by bereavement. If you are reading this page the chances are you have lost someone and are responsible for organising their funeral. Whether for a family member or a close friend, the process will be similar. We at IJC are sorry for your loss and hope to be of some help by making our service as simple and efficient as we possibly can. IJC are a small company based in Aveley, Essex who specialise in quality, short run printing. One area of that is funeral stationery – which is how we can help. However, as we aim to be of as much assistance as we can we have created some additional resources at the bottom of this page to aid you in other areas of the arrangements.

What is Funeral Stationery?

Personalised Funeral Stationery is a compliment to any funeral service. Our compassionate and professional approach enables you to create a bespoke item with minimum fuss. All elements of our funeral stationery range can be personalised to your specific requirements, making them applicable to both religious and humanistic funerals alike.

Funeral Announcement Cards

are a simple way to communicate to friends and family the passing of a loved one and to advise details of when and where the funeral service is to take place. Our cards are 10.5 by 7.4 centimetres and are supplied with envelopes.

A Funeral Order of Service

was originally designed to guide people through a religious funeral rite service. This is still true today when a Requiem Mass is being organised, but an order of service is often required for less formal humanistic and shorter chapel services held at crematoriums. They can also be used as memorials, where photographs, poems and messages are included to create a keep-sake in memorandum to the deceased. Our most popular size is a “sheet” which is a piece of card folded in half. If a “booklet” is required we use the card as a cover and staple one or two paper sheets inside. This gives plenty of room and flexibility for you to include as many photo’s readings, hymns, messages etc as you would like. Folded page size is 21 by 14.8 centimetres and both sheets and booklets are supplied folded.

Funeral Attendance cards

are a simple a way to gather the names and addresses of those at the service. You can then send a thank you at a later date for people’s attendance, tributes, help and support. The cards can be given to people as they arrive and, when completed, left in the pews for collection afterwards. Cards are 10.5 by 7.4 centimetres.

Funeral Thank You Cards

are a follow up to the Attendance Cards. Send them to those who have given you help and support or attended the funeral service expressing personal thanks with your own message. Cards are 10.5 by 7.4 centimetres and are supplied with envelopes.
