    What do you all do when you need a lot of recipe cards to hand out? Do you buy them or make them on your computer? If you make them, what do you use? I need to make up a bunch (hundreds) and was just curious what I should do.

    Thank you so much for that tip. I checked it out and they have some neat stuff. I want to pass out recipe cards at a Home and Garden show and will need several hundred if not 1000!! It may just have to be first come first serve and not everybody get one. When you make yours do you print them out on paper, card stock or don't they make already perforated post card stock? Seems like I've seen that before. :rolleyes:

    PC Recipe Cards

    I would think it would be just as cost effective (after you look at printer ink, paper, etc) to order the PC Celebrations recipe cards off of the supply order. There's a place to stamp your information on them, too.

    Just my 2 cents,
    Sandy

    Yeah, might be. I haven't looked to see how much the recipe cards from PC cost. I did buy some of the post card stock tonight at Walmart and it was around $8 for only 200 individual cards! Yikes. My ink runs around $30 per cartridge.

    Agreed. Nice, clean professional card with your stamp or label on it. MUCH cheaper.

    I just looked at my Supply Order Form. Are the recipe cards really 30 for only 75 cents?! I never realized they were so cheap!!

    I always us the PC recipe cards to pass out at fairs/shows! They are sooo professional looking, you can stamp your info on them, and most people will hang onto a recipe, when they would probably just throw away a business card that you may give them!

    You didn't ask this, but if you are working at the Home and Garden show- don't stand behind your display table...stand in front of it. That way you are more approachable. Use the recipe cards as a reason to call folks over- most everyone loves recipes!

    Yeah, I had already planned to put my tables against the walls in a u shape. The people who are putting this together are making each booth donate a $25 gift. BUT, the only way the people can sign up to win a gift is if they take this card that they will be given and have it signed by someone at every single booth. I think that is a really good idea. Then you know that everyone has to stop at your booth. I just hope I can relax and not be too nervous. That will be my biggest challenge. :eek:

    make sure you ask whoever is in charge for a copy of the mailing list that they gather i did a show like that before and they gave me a copy of all the people who filled out the cards and especially the name of the person who wins what you donate than follow up with a FREE show
