The brochure printing and distribution will be the responsibility of each coalition member organization. The format is up to you, but the wording must not be altered.
The condensed wallet card version was quoted with a buff background and green print laminated in plastic to make it water resistant and more durable. The prices are: 1500 cards @ $.21 each, 2000 @ $.17 each and 3000 @ $.13 each. Delivery is about two weeks. Let me know if you want any and what quantity. EHTPS (which will order 500 for their use) will combine the quantities, order all the cards and distribute to your respective organizations at a prorated cost. Gene Makl
