Memorial folders are a key part of the Mark Thomas product line. They were our first product offered 27 years ago and we produce millions of them annually, in over 200 styles. When we set out to take some photos that represent the memorial folder production process, we realized how many different hands are involved: Loni who makes the plates, Mark who runs the press, Rich who cuts the paper, Jeanne (center) who scores, perforates and counts the folders, and Virgene (top left) who shrinkwraps the packages. This is in addition to the designer, the paper buyer, the people who take your order and those who pack and ship it to you.
The 1141 Pink Roses (top right) memorial folder is a particular favorite of ours and yours—a top-seller. The photo for this folder was taken for us by Mark Schneider, a good friend of ours who died way too young. This image is also used on prayer cards, acknowledgments, bulletins, bookmarks and register books.
