Wallet Memorial Cards (often referred to as Prayer Cards) are of standard credit card or business card size – in our case it is 55x85mm (2.16”x3.34”). This size makes it a perfect keepsake to be carried in a purse or wallet, because most wallets have slots for credit cards. They have rounded corners what makes them less prone to damage.

Most wallet memorial cards have portrait orientation. You may encounter landscape-oriented ones but they are not common. Seems that portrait orientation allows for better utilisation of the space and a nicer design. It is also a natural orientation for portrait photos and most of wallet cards feature a photo.
Wallet memorial cards are printed on heavy card (350gsm), they are double sided and laminated. Lamination (plastic finish) makes them very durable and contributes to elegant look. It also provides an extra layer of protection against mechanical damage.

The cards will easily survive years in your wallet without any deterioration in their look. Sometimes the cards have rounded corners but many companies do them with ordinary square corners. Rounding helps to prevent damage when inserting the cards into wallet. All our wallet cards do have rounded corners.
It seems that wallet memorial cards are a good add-on when you order your standard sized memorial cards. The smaller quantity of those cards can be given to people who are likely to keep them in their wallets – relatives, close friends of the deceased, those who would like to have this sort of a personal keepsake with them at all times.
We have customers who order just wallet memorial cards in higher quantities. The price difference between wallet and standard sized in memoriam cards is not significant, so they should be chosen based on your personal preferences and needs.
The size and shape of the wallet card determines the design. As the space is limited, the design is usually pretty standard. You cannot fit too much text into them because the card would look too busy or the text would become too small to be legible. From all memorial products only keyrings are smaller than wallet memorial cards.

The back of a wallet memorial card usually consists just of a short prayer (thus their alternative name – Prayer Cards), verse, poem or other text.
Both front and back can have a photo in the background. Scenic photos or places related to the deceased are commonly used. Some cards have religious images or a cross on the back. Some designs do not use a photo of the deceased at all. In such case the design consist of a large cross or a religious image along with the name of the deceased on the front.
