Here's some good advice from our friend and LEGAL Hispanic immigrant, Tony Dolz:
Sent: 4/13/2009 3:02:49 P.M. Eastern Daylight TimeSubj: Tea Parties: Making Big Posters 24 x 36 inches from ordinary home
printers CHEAP and EASYSIGNS AND POSTERS - MAKE LARGE POSTERS from an ORDINARY PRINTER
You may want to put this on the website or let people know in other ways.
There is a very simple and FREE software (trial is good enough) that
enable the printer to print any image or text into pages. These pages can then
be glued on to a 24x36 inch or bigger Elmer´s Foam Board. Elmer foam
boards are about ¼ inch thick, stiff and lightweight. They are available in
white and black.
• The POSTER software can be downloaded here: www.aceposter.com
• The Elmers Foam Board can be purchased for about $4 or less at
Aarons or any office supply store like Staples.
One cuts and glues the pages of paper to the board and that is it.
The software is a no brainer to use.
In my experience at previous demonstration, people make signs that are too
small and the letters are too small. From a distance and from moving
vehicles passing by it is impossible to read. I think that 24x36 is a minimum
size. Bigger would be even better. I typically keep it to 10 words or
less, much less if possible. Like a simple "LOWER TAXES
" "HONOR THE
CONSTITUTION" "GIVE ME LIBERTY"
I see people sometimes write a whole paragraph - there is no way something
long can be seen or read at a rally specially on a small sign.
ANNOUNCEMENT, Constitution Scholar Ted Hilton and I just got approved by
the California Attorney General to kick off our TAXPAYER PROTECTION ACT
2009. According to the AG it will save California Tax Payers over $1 billion
annually. It restricts how birth certificates are issued in California
and eliminates some tax paid services. Go here for information.
