Greeting Card Campaign: 10-28 Animation Day

Click here to download your Animation day Card
October 28 is Animation Day. Celebrate the art of animation by putting pencil to paper and bringing your characters to life.  We've all probably taken a stab at animation at one time or another, whether with simple flip page animation using drawings on the corner of a pad of paper or with one of those simple Basic computer programs where you make the stick man do jumping jacks (I spent two hours programming a little animated stick guy who waved his hand - time I will never get back). We are all at the very least, consumers of animation, having seen Disney movies and cartoons and Toy Story and all its sequels.

Tell your sweetheart she animates your life with this Animation Day greeting card you can download.  This card has a special feature. If you flip it open and closed quickly, you will see a simple animation.

Just click on the caption below the picture of the Cartoon Animator above to download your free Animation Day Card.
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.
