Greeting Card Campaign: 8-19 Aviation Day

Click here to get your Aviation Day Card
August 19th is Aviation Day, celebrating the birthday of Orville Wright, who, with his brother completed the first successful powered airplane flight. It's also know as Wright Brothers Day.  FDR officially proclaimed the 19th Aviation Day in 1939.  Oddly enough, it's also the birthday of Gene Roddenberry, whose Star Trek sci-fi series encouraged us all to look beyond the atmosphere of Earth for adventure. Not a lot of people know it, but Gene flew B-17s in the Pacific during WWII.

Tell your sweetheart today that she makes your heart soar with this printable Aviation Day Card. Just click on the caption below Wright Flyer and it will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a top fold card, so when it prints be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file printed correctly. Flip it on the long side to print double-sided. This will save you a lot of time.  Have fun and enjoy making a move on your sweetie while you're slipping this romantic card into her hand.
