April 10, 2012 - PRLog -- While for quite some time, one of the trendiest presents that a couple could give to their wedding guests were bookmarks commemorating the big day, for Karen Musselman, owner of, started noticing another trend in her new bookmarks business - she began receiving more and more requests for funeral and memorial service bookmarks, even more so than for her wedding bookmarks.

To Mrs. Musselman, the requests made a lot of sense, especially after her aunt commented on several of the designs as being pretty and calming and actually more befitting for funerals. Funeral bookmarks definitely hold a lot more of a personal touch than prayer cards, and they also help grieving friends and family keep their deceased friend close to their hearts.

Customers who have received the bookmarks remark that they even seem to help with the grieving process. The bookmarks proved to be a good way to give surviving relatives a memento from the funeral, and they also proved to be warmly welcomed, even by those who often don't take kindly to new traditions. In a word, memorial bookmarks created a trend that simply will not vanish anytime soon.

As a businesswoman, Musselman could not stop herself from expanding her enterprises, and decided to create Each bookmark that is sent out comes with an elegant design, a variety of tassel colors to choose from, and also comes with the option of customization. Easily affordable for the entire funeral party, the memorial bookmarks that are offered on her site start as low as $0.90 a piece.

Many of her customers and even colleagues are wondering why Karen Musselman decided to branch off onto another website in order to sell these specific bookmarks. . When asked why she felt that she needed to make a site specifically for memorial and funeral bookmarks, Karen simply remarked. "It's simply a matter of respect for grieving families, and a matter of appropriate settings. I really felt they needed their own more solemn home on the web, apart from the bright, festive, and fun bookmarks for weddings and other occasions.”

Since launching, Karen has added a lovely introductory video on the main page of the site as a way to greet her visitors and explain the services that she offers. "I think especially during this difficult time, people need to hear a voice," Karen said about her decision to add the video to the site. "It makes an otherwise impersonal Internet business more personal," she added. "I really want my customers to know that I care about them and can empathize with their grief."

Karen also realizes that many people still prefer traditional prayer cards to bookmarks, so she is now offering her customers a choice of formats. All of her designs and full customization are now available as either prayer cards or bookmarks. "The prayer cards are printed and laminated and have the rounded corners just like our bookmarks," Mrs. Musselman commented. "So customers are still getting great quality, just in the format of the more traditional prayer cards." Karen has added a new video to the website showing customers that although there is a difference in format, all other customization options and quality remain the same.

Though is still a relatively new online business, there has already been a lot of praise when it came to these new, much more personal, gifts. And you can always expect the utmost care, quality, and sensitivity when ordering from
