“The ones that love us never really leave us.”

—Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

When a loved one passes a piece of us changes forever and we’re tasked with finding ways to seek comfort in the memories we hold of those we’ve lost. Grieving takes time but somewhere in the midst of it all, we find small ways to celebrate the life that has passed.

We at Cherished Prints believe that life should be celebrated and we’d like to help bring light to the dark by providing you with lasting memories that honor and pay tribute to your loved one.

In the Cherished Prints stationery collection for funerals and memorial services, you’ll find modern and uplifting designs created by our professional graphic designer and owner, Melissa Fox-Austin.

Here's How it Works

Why choose Cherished Prints?

Our products and services come straight from the heart.

Cherished Prints took root in 2012 with the passing of a beloved mother. Our founder, Melissa, scoured the internet for a memorial announcement that captured the essence of her mom’s memory—something clean, uplifting, and beautiful.

There was nothing that inspired Melissa to remember her mom, nothing that made her say, “Yes! This is so her”. Unwilling to settle for mediocre, Melissa took it upon herself to create a design that paid perfect tribute to her mom’s generous life and the love they shared.

We’d like to help tell the story of your loved one’s life.

Your experience with us is about finding a design that speaks to the memory of the person whose life you’re celebrating and our job is to make it simple for you by taking you through it step by step and handling the details and logistics.

Each celebration of life order is made to order with the highest level of care and dedication. The process is as hands-on or hands-off as you need it to be–just ask for help if you need it.

Our Mission

Life after the death of a loved one can be impossibly difficult and we understand what you’re going through. The emotional drain can weigh heavy and tending to each detail consumes your time and energy.

As you prepare to order, we’re here to guide you or even lift the burden from you completely. We care deeply about the quality of our design and products and we care about you, so help us customize your experience by reaching out when you need help.

It’s our honor to help commemorate the memory of your loved one and we thank you for trusting us with this special task.

Melissa did a beautiful and elegant job on these bookmarks. They are of the highest quality and I can tell she takes pride in her work. Thank you so much for allowing us to have such an awesome memory of my father commemorated forever! ♥

The bookmark for my Grandpas service was absolutely beautiful and a perfect tribute to him. I passed them out to our immediate family and there wasn’t a dry eye. Thank you for helping create this momento to keep so that we never forget how amazing he was. Also, thank you for your quick response and turn around time. <3

It’s hard to describe or sum up a person’s life, but with Melissa’s beautiful work, my Grandmother’s impact on all of us was truly spoken for through the peony program, bookmark and prayer card. Melissa was prompt to review and edit any changes we needed to make, and it was extremely easy (in a time where most things aren’t) to make as many copies of the files as I liked. It’s moments like these where we are grateful for the people that were put in our path to help celebrate our Grandmother, and I’m so happy we found Melissa to help us express our love and adoration for her through beautiful prints.
