Essentially, an obituary bookmark is to mark the last page you read of a book, such as the Bible, prose or poetry, and morning prayer books that you might read for the deceased members. You can also give this bookmark to the people who also care about their former friend or relative. However, this one bookmark isn't only to place in the book, but also to place their narrative in the receiver's heart because most of the bookmarks have the short biography of the loved one.
Usually, people make the obituary bookmark in the house because they need a computer to make one. You will also find inspiration from the internet, pick the photograph from your file, and highlight the line or verse from a book or Bible regarding their departure from the earth. On the internet, you might as well make the bookmarks from the given template. There are a lot of websites that allow you to make ones, with different borders, templates, and shapes of the bookmarks for free. If making these bookmarks is your day-to-day job, then, you make these ones at work. You should make it with a graphic design application.
Basically, anybody can make obituary bookmarks. But, most of them are adults because it is to commemorate the loss of their loved ones, as they are the ones who know the life of their loved ones. The children might as well help the parents to design the bookmarks like where to put the photograph, what poem or Bible verse to be inserted, the shape of the bookmarks, and such. You can also get some help from designers to make this kind of bookmark if you're about to print the bookmarks in bulk.
The first thing you should prepare to make an obituary bookmark is the idea. There are a lot of borders you can choose, the shapes that suit the bookmark, the content of the bookmarks, and so on.

As a result, you have to decide what kind of writings you will insert in the bookmarks.
