“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.

As Seen



I was EXTREMELY happy with the partnership and outcome of the Memorial Service Program that Cherished Prints created for my mother-in-law’s celebration of life. We received several complements from those who attended the service. I would HIGHLY recommend Cherished Prints to others who are looking for a creative partner for these moments.

From the incredible response time, to the willingness to answer all of my many (sometimes annoying) questions, and the unmatched quality of the paper and design, I’ve only got good things to say about Cherished Prints. Everyone at the memorial loved the weight and heft of the paper stock, the tropical design fit perfectly with the mood of the ceremony, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Great design! Expedient service! The best ever customer service! I needed funeral programs ASAP. Melissa worked tirelessly and patiently with me as I customized, amended, & edited the programs to get them just right for my wonderful dad. Her excellent work and suggestions made all the difference. She was compassionate and understanding of my circumstances. I highly recommend Cherished Prints.
