Greeting Card Campaign: 8-22 Punctuation Day

"Holy Hyphenation, Batman!  It's Punctuation Day!" 

Click here to download your card.
Yes, dive into the dictionary, hold down your shift key and run your finger across the number keys.  August 22nd celebrates everyone who has any remote idea how to properly use a comma.  You may think a semi-colon is something they do at the hospital with a long tube and a TV camera, but today, it doesn't matter. Drag out your ampersands, question marks, exclamation points, quotation marks and interbangs and write a note to your "darling" - the light of your life inside this spiffy Punctuation Day Card.

Just click on the caption below the drawing of the non-specific, non-trademarked Batish-like person 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 side fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "landscape" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This will save you a lot of time. Have fun and remember:

Punctuation is your friend.  Without it how would Batman ever have defeated the Joker (Or the Riddler, Penguin, Two-Face, The Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze or Solomon Grundy for that matter)? No punctuation, no Biff!  Pow!  Oof? or "Wham!!!!"

Just sayin'
