A few months back, the Liturgy Office of my diocese mailed out a few different options for pew cards that different companies were selling. After reviewing them, I did not particularly like any of them. Each had a good feature, but also some draw backs. I decided to format my own card, incorporating all of the features I liked from different cards.
The card I created is simple, a 6×9” double sided card (fits into the large print missal really well). It is printed on a coated card stock with rounded corners (it should hold up long enough for the people to learn the new parts). I have bolded the changed words to aid the peoples understanding. The type is at least 12pt, making it easier to read. You can see a pdf of the card here.
If you would like to use the card I created at your parish, you can contact Bill Egan at Egan Printing (303-534-0171 or email@example.com) and his company will place your parish logo on the card and print them for you. The prices they came up with are as follows:
•Minimum order of 200 cards
•50¢ per card with a one time $25 set up fee.
•40¢ per card and no set up fee if you order 2,000 or more.
It is important for me to note that this is not a money making scheme. I do not have a stake in this, other than wishing to share a great resource. Further, Egan is not selling pew cards; you are essentially hiring him to print cards for your parish.
I pray that we all do an extraordinary job of helping our congregations with the changes this Advent.by
