Death Announcement Templates 

Dealing with the passing of loved ones is certainly a difficult task, and so using a death announcement template to inform family and friends of what happened can help make the situation a bit easier. Losing anyone is hard. When a close family member or friend passes, you may not know where to begin when it comes to an announcement of this nature.

Customizable announcements enable you to share the news through social media such as Facebook for instance, or in print. Design Wizard’s templates are created by skilled graphic experts. All you have to do is provide the information regarding your loved one and/or friend. Many also opt to include a photo with their announcement, thereby making it even more personal for their loved ones.

Designing a Beautiful Tribute

When a close friend or family member dies, their legacy lives on. And capturing this in a death announcement or death notice that can also be shared online via Facebook or Twitter for example, really is an important tribute to their memory.

Many people often include such information as memorial service details, funeral service arrangements and if charitable contributions, where those should be directed. The death of someone close to you, needless to say, is a stressful and difficult time. We just want to help make the situation a little bit easier. You don’t need to be a graphic design expert to craft a personal and touching tribute. And you don't need to be a social media expert to be able to share the news via Facebook or any other such platform.

How to Create a Death Announcement

Again, the process is not hard when starting from a professional template. All you need to do is add the relevant details regarding the deceased and then customize according to how you want the end result to look.  You can then download or share on social media, on Facebook, or whatever platforms you choose. Sharing on social media is a very good way to inform people of memorial service details for example. 

We have a vast library of death notice templates. Find one that appeals to you, and then you are set to personalize it.

With any of our templates, numerous elements can be customized. What was your close friend/family member’s favorite color? You could do the background in this shade. You can also change the font type and layout among other features of the death announcement template.

Photos certainly lend themselves to making your announcement more personal. They can be uploaded from your device, from Facebook, Instagram, essentially anywhere you happen to store your photos.

Some keep it simple and just provide basic information: full name, dates of birth and death, funeral details, and where donations can be made. Some also opt to include a special tribute or memorial message. A favorite saying or quote perhaps could be a touching reminder of the person who passed. The announcement wording for many is probably the most important part. 

As far as printing goes, you can print directly from your home computer. You might also use a professional printing service for your death announcement. Additionally, all templates can be shared online through social media. This makes it easy and efficient in terms of reaching more people in order to inform them of the death.
