I really can not rate higher.

I placed an order for 60 booklets for a funeral, 6 days before the date. They were printed and sent out the next day. I really can not rate higher. Online design was really easy to use. Customer service replies where instant. They even reached out to let me know that they were on the way. What a great business. Really did make such a dreaded task for an event noone wants to go through, so much easier and for that I cant thank them enough.

Great quality printing and the team couldn’t be more helpful.

Great quality printing and the team couldn’t be more helpful. I used my own design and the website was easy and intuitive to use while uploading the design. All of this even more important given the nature of the item (Funeral Order of Service). Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much …

We needed to organise the order of service for our mother's funeral and after looking at various companies online, we chose 'A Loving Tribute'. They had a beautiful range of designs and it was really easy to select a template and create the design. As we needed the booklets printed quickly, we were able to speak to Sam who kindly finalised the design within minutes and was able to print and send the booklets the same day! The entire process was so simple and straightforward. When the booklets arrived the next day, we were delighted with the beautiful colours of the wildflower design, and the excellent quality of the card. It made them look and feel really special. We had a beautiful poem on the inside page of the booklet which looked so beautiful that guests were able to keep this as a keepsake following the funeral service. A great company that provides support at a very difficult time.

Excellent and quick service

Very good service from this company. I put in an order for funeral orders of service late after hours on Thursday and I received the completed orders on Saturday morning. Everything was exactly as I had specified and the paper was good quality. Highly recommended. My only quibble would be that I found designing the document on the website to be quite tricky because I already had the text in a word document and there was very limited functionality to match formatting,so it was quite time-consuming to quite to paste all the text in and get the formatting right. That said, once it was done it looked good, and the finished product was worth the effort.

I recently had to create an order of service for my mum and I’d never done this before. Despite checking it so many times I had missed a couple of typos. I called and spoke with Sam who was absolutely amazing, he changed them for me without any issue and also brightened the picture on the front for me. They came the next day and they are absolutely perfect. I am so glad I used this company and would 10000% recommend and use them in future should I ever need to. Thank you so so much!

The Printed Word created a unique and beautiful Order of Service for my Father’s Funeral in an extremely short timescale.

The Printed Word created a unique and beautiful Order of Service for my Father’s Funeral in an extremely short timescale. From my initial contact with Stephen through to the design work completed by Sam, their approach was excellent, calm and reassuring, at what was a very difficult time personally. I knew from my initial conversations that they would be easy to work with and fulfil the deadline. The Order of Service ‘evolved’ as we worked on it and nothing was ever too much trouble, including all the changes we made! The finished piece was of a very high standard and included family photos so it acted as memento for all those who attended the Funeral. We received a lot of compliments about the Order of Service and we continue to receive them as we send them out to those who could not attend on the day. Many, many thanks to both Stephen and Sam for their incredible service from my first phone call through to the delivery. I would highly recommend The Printed Word and have no hesitation in doing so.

Easy to use website and designer (on laptop, slightly tricker on the phone). The price was reasonable, quality fantastic and delivery was the next day in a clearly labelled package showing the order of service for the funeral had to be treated with the utmost care.

This was a last minute order we wanted a particular design and detailed order of service booklet for a funeral.

This was a last minute order we wanted a particular design and detailed order of service booklet for a funeral. I found this company online and was in contact with Stephen and Sam throughout as they made tailored arrangements to suit our needs. We made several changes throughout each alliterations and not once did they complain.but eager to deliver what we wanted. The service that they provided was exceptionally high quality and both were extremely helpful and accommodating.They turned this around in a few days, printed and personally delivered 200 booklets. Our friends and relatives were really impressed that we had to re order a further batch to give them. First class company would definitely use them again. I am so pleased with the finished article so huge thanks to Stephen and Sam.😏

We wanted something nicer for an order of service, other than the white paper one offered by the funeral director.

We wanted something nicer for an order of service, other than the white paper one offered by the funeral director. We chose the Snowdrop design, it was easy to create our own bespoke copy using the template, and are delighted with them. The quality is fabulous, it's more like a lovely greeting card than an order of service, we put old photographs in and they printed up beautifully. The staff were helpful when I had a query, and they even spotted a small mistake and corrected it for me. We received them the next day. My mum would've loved them! Thanks you so much.

The reason they get a 5 star despite problems is the way they dealt with them.

So the reason they get a 5 star despite problems is the way they dealt with them. It was unfortunate that the UPS delivery failed twice but they were very responsive and made sure that they re-sent the order of services and sent me a printable PDF just in case. They were really apologetic and helpful.

Managed to Amend my Order the next day.

I found the website via Google. After a few mishaps I found the site easy to use. After 7 drafts as the music kept being changed by my family I sent in my order late afternoon. Three hours later the family wanted to change the music again! I told them we would have to do another order. As we had to check that the funeral director had the music I didn’t send the new order. The next morning I phoned Sam at Loving Tribute and asked if it was possible to stop my first order. Fortunately, it had not gone to the printer and he told me to send in my amendment as I had already paid. This was good news and I quickly sent off the amendment but made a typo in the address. Later Sam enquired about my amendment which was lucky as I was able to reply with my amendment. Sam kept me informed and sent me a proof for confirmation for printing. Had Sam not got back to me I would’ve waited in vain. Excellent service from Sam.

Order of Service pleasure to make...

As our Funeral Directors were unable to make the order of services, we were advised to use A loving Tribute through The Printed Word company. The web page is easy to navigate around. So many lovely order of services to choose from. You have a template which you are able to make the service personal to requirements. The printed word guys are so helpful, they made the process a happy one. I would recommend this service to any one!

This company were fantastic

This company were fantastic, I initially called them to discuss order if service for my nans funeral, I decided to give the design a go myself, the company then kindly checked it all over and made a couple of adjustments to make sure it was perfect. They were then hand delivered to me in 3 days. Emails to update along the way aswell. What a fantastic small business, would highly recommend. My nans order of service turned out beautifully and the quality is very good.

Excellent Company

Excellent. I was under tremendous pressure to get finalised an order of service for my Mum’s funeral and Sam was nothing short of amazing in helping me deal with this. I’m a little challenged with technology but their software to create funeral stationary was intuitive and responsive. But when I needed help it was there. When I added at the last minute additional items which I really wanted to make my Mum’s funeral complete, but was worried I wouldn’t have enough time, nothing was too much trouble for Sam. Everything I wanted was sorted for me. Also, delivery was as promised and the quality top notch. I can’t praise this company, and Sam in particular, enough. Would definitely recommend ‘A Loving Tribute’ for your funeral stationery.

The Printed Word (A Loving Tribute)

I stumbled over The Printed Word (A Loving Tribute) whilst looking for a company to print an Order of Service for my sisters funeral. From start to finish the service was outstanding and extremely professional, and I can not recommend them enough. The end result was of high quality and more than I could of imagined.They assisted me greatly in my endeavours to do my sister proud and I am most grateful to Stephen and Ethan. I will be recommending The Printed Word to my family, friends and associates, who may require any printing works, as I can honestly guarantee, they will not be disappointed. Thank you so much for all your help and support.

I cannot thank A Loving Tribute enough

I cannot thank A Loving Tribute enough. I was getting very distressed trying to put something together that was really very simple but I couldn’t manage it. If I could give Sam a hug I would. He just took what was becoming a huge burden off of me and got everything sorted. Getting through to A Loving Tribute and to the right person was very straight forward. Superb, caring customer service all round. Thank you

Order of Service Recommendation

Excellent customer service & communication throughout. Delivery exactly when promised & lovely quality. Template is easy to follow & uploading of photos is simple. We choose the salmon pink trim & it looked really feminine. It also gives you a sense of pride completing this task for your family member. Would definitely recommend. Big thanks to Rob for his help at short notice.

Fantastic service and printing

I found the website a bit clunky but was able to resolve those over the phone. I found the logo on the last page over-large and they agreed to reduce it for me. But far more importantly the overall standard is far higher than I expected especially as most of the photos produced a resolution warning. I strongly recommend using this firm.

To the rescue!

'A Loving Tribute' produced a simply beautiful and stunning order of service for our Grandad's funeral. The design matched perfectly with our chosen photographs. Although a very sad day, we are pleased with the final result and framed the order of service in our home. I would highly recommend 'A Loving Tribute' for their service and print quality.

Excellent Service

I registered with 'A Loving Tribute' for my mother in-law's funeral, so that we could fully personalise the order of service. I found the website very easy to use & there is a wide range of designs & settings to choose from. Once the order was placed they arrived within a few days. The quality was excellent & the photo's we had chosen had great definition. I would definitely recommend 'A Loving Tribute' to anyone in the unfortunate position of needing their services.

Perfect service

I registered with this company to design our own order of service for my dads funeral. I called up in advance to check if it was possibly to have something delivered within a right timescale and everyone I dealt with was very helpful!! The service was perfect from point of enquiry right through to delivery and the quality of the print and card used is excellent!! The website is easy to use too so zero complaints from us!

Incredible service, highly recommended

First class service from beginning to end. My Orders of Service arrived today, less than 48 hours after I uploaded my designs! I am absolutely delighted with them. I wanted an Order of Service which was professional, high quality and full of happy family memories, to honour and remember my dad, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. It felt like that was the only thing left that I could do for him. And they have helped me to create that. Thanks to their astonishingly good service, they have helped our family in giving us one less thing to have to worry about at this difficult time. I can't thank them enough.

Simple & great quality A*****

Really simple website with great templates. I uploaded my information and they did the rest! When my phone wouldn't let me log in the next day they edited the Order of Service for me over the phone and were ready the rest day. Very helpful and will certainly use them again.

Personal and Professional Service with a High Quality Product

As a Funeral Director, one of our services is to create an Order of Service booklet. A Loving Tribute is perfect for us with the templates they offer, meaning I can create the booklet and make amendments as I wish, as opposed to communicating back and fourth with a design team. However, if there is something a little technical I am unable to achieve, or want to create a special design outside of the templates offered, Sam and the team do not hesitate to assist. They are always attentive and appreciate the short time scale we work towards, with high attention to detail. The product they produce is high quality and very durable, lasting as a keepsake for the family. Thank you Sam & Team.

Best Order of Service Books that you can design and personalise yourself

I was happy to find this company and they had exactly what I was looking for - a very difficult time for my family after the loss of our beloved Grandmother and we wanted to put as much care and detail into the funeral as possible. I found an Order of Service template that was perfect and used the online site to design and personalise. very easy to use the design tool and had fantastic care and support from the team at A Loving Tribute - cannot thank them enough and recommend them highly. Our Order of Services arrived in plenty of time and looked even better than we had hoped - quality print and finishing. so pleased we are now ordering Thank you cards in similar style. Big thanks to you all.

Order of Service

Following the passing of our Mother, which was a difficult time for all of us, The Printed Word were recommended to us as a professional and local printing company. Following an initial meeting with Stephen Hill and Sam Wilson, to decide on a format, Sam went on to design a beautiful Order of Service, which included a number of photographs of our mother. He was also patient enough to put up with a number of revisions, as our plans changed. The booklets were delivered exactly on time and Sam also scanned a large number of photographs for us, which were used as a Slideshow at the wake and which went down very well with all who saw them. Thank you to The Printed Word for all their caring and assistance, when we needed it most.
