Greeting Card Campaign: 10-27 Navy Day

Click here to download your free Navy Day Card.
In the United States, October 27 is Navy Day in commemoration of the founding of the US Navy. This date was selected because it is President Theodore Roosevelt's birthday.  Unlike Thomas Jefferson who had to practically be dragged into building a US Navy, Teddy Roosevelt was an avid supporter of the U.S. Navy.  Recently, a historian discovered that the U.S. Continental Navy was October 13, 1775. There was, for a time an unsuccessful effort to move Navy Day to the 13th, but Navy Day remains the 27th. Salute a sailor today and send your Sweetie a Navy Day card from her favorite sailor man.

Just click on the caption below the picture of the big old boat with the big old guns. 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.
