Business Cards
« on: March 28, 2017, 10:50:36 AM »
Is there a way to order Appleseed business cards?  Either generic or personalized would be great.  That is easier to carry and pass out to interested people than the trifold flier.  If there is not a way to order, I would like to make my own.  Any suggestions?
V/R,

We've been talking about ordering standard appleseed cards through the appleseed store. This is a good reminder to get that started. Hopefully I'll be able to post instructions in the next couple weeks.

We used Vista Print to have ours made up. They were very cheap. Stock cheap ones we used had a flag.
 All we did was overlay the copy and we were done.

I want to be very careful since Appleseed and the logos are trademarked.

I know that we just had the Instructor Credentials automated, could there be a similar function in TIPS to generate a PDF for an avery business card template.  With options for B/W and Full Color.

This would maintain the proper trademarks for logos, and provide for Instructors to enter their personal contact data, and utilize the state @appleseedinfo.org emails as well

I know that the accepted practice is that when you find a problem, solve it. but I lack the skills in this case to get this one done.

Hi Folks,

I know there has been a lot of interest in business cards. I think Number6 makes a great suggestion. However; in the interest of time (since we keep Scuzzy VERY busy), I wanted to post a template of the 'official' business card. Unfortunately VistaPrint does not allow the saving of templates, but this should be easy to recreate. I have also attached the official logo. I hope this helps.

Thank you all!!  I will get some printed as soon as possible.  I have a tendency to talk to a LOT of people.  This will help give them something in their hand.

I ordered some from Vistaprint and left out the title.  If I still have cards after I DX the (ugly) >:D orange hat and earn the (beautiful crimson) ;) Red hat, I will still be able to use them.

Again, thank you for the responses!  Appleseeders are kinda like regular people, but more awesome!!   O0

There used to be really nice challenge cards available from the AS store.
Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

Hi Folks,

Unfortunately VistaPrint does not allow the saving of templates, but this should be easy to recreate. I have also attached the official logo. I hope this helps.

Vistaprint does have a way to shave/share templates.  I've actually set us as a nonprofit with them, which means a discounted rate, in addition to easy access to the template:

Thanks for setting this up for us.  I'd like to upload the official business card template that a lot of other volunteers are already using.  Can you please send me the log in credentials?  Thanks.
