Greeting Card Campaign: 10-21 Babbling Day

Click here to downloadyour Babbling Day card.
October 21st is Babbling Day for all you blatherskites out there.  On Babbling Day, we celebrate those of us with the gift of gab. You know who you are. They're the folk who never quite seem to stop talking. Some of them are quite glib and witty and turn their annoying habit into a lucrative career as a standup comic, a Shakespearean actor or a preacher.  These are the folk who can turn a simple one sentence reply into a doctoral dissertation complete with footnotes and bibliography.

Or you can take another tack and remind your sweetheart what it was like when you used to babble like an idiot in her present. Send her this Babbling Day card to remind her that she still shakes your nerves and rattles your brain. Just click on the caption below the picture of the babbling man. The link 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. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out right side up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet.

Take it slow and don't let the thing turn you into a babbling idiot - though computers sometimes have that effect on people.
