New Large Print Altar Cards Soon Available

Hello everyone. In response to requests, I have been burning the midnight oil lately designing four more large print Latin Mass altar cards: Red, Gold, and Blue for the Low Mass, and a Requiem Gray for the funeral Mass. Very large versions can be viewed online along with our popular Stained Glass large print version over in our Picasa pictures.

Like our other altar cards, they measure 12 inches high with the center coming in at 18 inches wide and the sides 8 inches. The center card type is a large 15.6 points. The side card type is a huge 20 point. For the font, I chose Times because it is a Serif font that is known for easy readability. So, the next time you fire up your word processing software, select Times font and type some characters in these point sizes. It's the biggest type that I could fit on the cards.

Originally, the plan was to again use Father Felix Just's stained glass window photos in these designs. They just didn't look right though. So, I thought, why not just leave out a picture so that some of the center card's center section type could be bigger. The resulting designs are admittedly pretty plain, but I think they look pretty darned good.

Within two weeks, I expect the bugs to be worked out and have a printed supply on hand.

In conclusion, please take a look at them over in Picasa. We hope that you like them. Your honest feedback is really appreciated though even if it's negative. Our goal is to give priests cards that they can read and as attractive as possible with the little room available for graphics. So, if you are not seeing what you want, please let us know so that we can design for you.

As always, thanks for visiting our blog. If there's anything we can do for you, just let us know. Have a great week!
