This is why we will always aim to make the process of purchasing your memorial or remembrance cards as stress-free as possible; We can assure you that your situation will always be handled with empathy, care and confidentiality.

We print on high quality materials which achieve vibrant colours to help enhance photos. As a finishing touch we add a coat of smooth gloss laminate to help achieve longer-lasting quality results. Production is all in-house where we use laser cutting, creasing, cornering and folding machinery to ensure your products are finished to the highest possible standards.

 

1. Choose Your Design

We have a great selection of themes and images available, including traditional and scenic photos, floral designs, and religious imagery such as Blessed Virgin Mary and some iconic Catholic saints.
