Greeting Card Campaign: 8-27 Kiss Me Day

Click Here to Download Card
Well now, it's Kiss Me Day - one of my favorite holidays.  The holiday marks the very first screen kiss in 1929 between that spinach chugging cartoon slugger, Popeye the Sailor Man and his one true lady love, the ahead-of-her time-skinny-as-a-rail Olive Oyl.  Her response?

"My hero," she said, falling into a swoon - possibly from hunger.  It was, after all, the beginning of the Depression. Today is the day for heroes and their sweethearts to demonstrate their affection for one another with a bit of labial osculation (it means kissing so calm down all you prepubescents).  Send your own Miss Oyl a cock-eyed "romantic" greeting card and seal it with a kiss (SWAK)?

Just click on the caption below the picture of the celebrating couple.  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 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 for smooching, so get to it, but remember to brush your teeth first, especially if you've been chugging spinach!
