Preserving and Sharing Your Legacy Documents
Once you have written your personal legacy documents, you will want to preserve then in a way that will stand the test of time. Regular paper and ink will deteriorate and fade with time, so you may want to consider other options. I can work with you directly to assist you through the steps provided in partnership through Celebration of Life's professional preservation team.
Approach #1: Do it yourself.
Use our preservation supplies to print or hand-write your legacy document on hand-painted archival paper, protected by an embossed archival folder. Our Gift Packs include all of the necessary supplies, or purchase folders and archival paper as needed. Or consider A Legacy to Remember Protective Binder.
Approach #2: Have us create a professionally crafted legacy keepsake for you.
Simply email us the text of your legacy document and any photos you would like to include. We’ll provide a custom quote for designing and printing the legacy keepsake of your choice. All options below can be tailored for Ethical Wills/Legacy Letters, Life Reflection stories, Making a Difference Plans, or a personal creation.
