Messenger Introduces FloralXpress, a New App for Use with Expression Guest Registry System

AUBURN, Indiana, December 2, 2013 – Messenger LLC, the leading funeral stationery supplier in North America, has launched a new FloralXpress app for use with its Expression Guest Registry™ system. The app allows funeral homes to take photos of floral arrangements and floral cards on an iOS device and easily upload them to the Expression Guest Registry dashboard. Floral pages are set up in Expression Guest Registry to be printed on standard register book border pages. In addition to being easy and convenient for the funeral home, families also benefit by having a beautiful record of the floral arrangements and who sent them to assist with sending thank you cards.

“When we demonstrated FloralXpress at the 2013 NFDA Convention, Funeral Directors embraced the idea of printing photographs of the floral sprays and cards in the pages of the memorial register book” stated Mike Kane, Expression Guest Registry Program Manager. “The FloralXpress app makes this process simple for the funeral home while adding another dimension to the level of service the funeral home provides to their client families.”

The FloralXpress app is currently available for iOS devices including iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod Touch. An Android version will be released in early 2014.


Expression Guest Registry was founded in 2012 by funeral director, Michael Kane, as an approach to implement useful technology in funeral homes.
