TributeBoard is an online memorial site that allows you to collaborate with family & friends to honor a loved one who has passed away.
A Mini TributeBoard is free and and allows 20 posts (either from 20 individual contributors, or from fewer contributors who each make several posts). A Mini TributeBoard can be upgraded to Unlimited for $49 at any time, which allows family & friends to post as much content as desired.
TributeBoard is focused on making it easy for family and friends to share memories, pictures, and videos in a way that is both visually appealing online and printable.
TributeBoards are only available to those whom you provide the unique link. Your TributeBoard is not publicly listed on our website.
There are a few different options to invite other contributors to share their memories, pictures, and videos on the TributeBoard you've created. You can copy/paste the board link into your own message to contributors, invite them to add through facebook, or use our email system to send an invitation.
There are a few things you can do to get family and friends involved:
a) Show, don't tell. Before you invite others to contribute, write a heartfelt message and post photos and videos.
b) Give a deadline. Asking people to get their contributions in by a certain date makes a difference -- particularly if you want to print it.
c) Follow up. Remind contributors about the board before the deadline you provided.

Your low-resolution backgrounds are replaced with high-resolution counterparts, videos are replaced with images (the ones you see before pressing "play"), and the entire board is delivered as a single JPG.

Depending on the number of contributions your board receives - you can choose to print it with 3-, 6-, or 12- columns (and in these instances we recommend a width of 12”, 24” or 48”). The length of the board will be determined by the amount of content you’ve received.
The board will not be a standard poster dimension since it’s size is determined by the amount of content added.
The size of your board will determine the cost to print it as a poster. For a board with 50 contributions you should expect to spend anywhere from $50-$75 USD to print at a print shop in the US. Our shipped prints are priced at $30 + $4/sq. foot, which will similarly cost $50-$75 for a board with 50 contributions (including shipping).
We can print and ship anywhere in the continental US, and delivery typically takes 1-2 weeks. We recommend you download the poster for free and print it yourself at a print shop if your need is time sensitive.
