New Release: "Jasmine" Latin High Mass Altar Cards

Hello everyone. We are proud to release a brand new design of Roman Catholic Tridentine High Mass Altar Cards called "Jasmine." We wanted something that had a bit of an oriental look to it and we believe this creation does the trick. It will be sent to our printing company soon and we welcome advance orders on our regular business website, Myriad Creative Concepts.

Jasmine is a unique design that features the jasmine artwork of the 19th Century firm, William Morris Company. William Morris wallpaper was very popular in British homes. The beautiful picture on the center card was painted by Hans Holbein the Younger in the 16th Century. The painting is titled, "Christ On The Cross."

Besides being very pretty, this set of High Mass Latin Altar Cards is also very practical. The center card type is 12 points while the two side cards have 16 point type making this set very easy to read. Also, this set of altar cards has many prayers not commonly found on today's Latin altar cards. This set includes the Aufer, Oramus te, Supplices, and Corpus tuum prayers. Our consulting priests have advised us to include these prayers on our designs whenever possible. Since this set is a High Mass version, the center card has the three additional prayers for saying High Mass. Lastly, the layout of the center card was carefully plotted so that no prayers would be blocked by the chalice when needed to be read.

If you would like more information about this new "Jasmine" set of Latin High Mass Altar Cards, feel free to visit us online at our regular business website, Myriad Creative Concepts. We also have a wide selection of other altar cards and companion cards for the Latin and English Masses.

Thanks for visiting.

Latin Large Print Altar Cards Updated

Hello everyone. I hope that you are enjoying this year's Fourth of July weekend so far. I know that I certainly am. I've been kicking back and enjoying some great blues music while tinkering with some designs to improve them. My neighbor is having a cookout and was nice enough to bring me some extra food freshly grilled! Now, you just can't beat that ...

Today, I improved my large print Latin Low Mass altar card designs to make them better than ever. Our designs include Blue, Gold, Red, and a Stained Glass graphic design. On the center card, I added the first half of the Supplices prayer. The rest can be easily read from the altar missal. On the Lavabo card, I added the Corpus tuum prayer at the bottom. I've been told by several priests that they much prefer using altar cards with these prayers on them but are difficult to come by.

The overall type size on the center cards is 15 points while the type on the side cards is 18 points. This is very large and should be enough for most priests. If you need even larger type, just let me know and I will custom-design a set for you.

Please note that as of this writing we have remaining stock (1-10 of each as prints and laminated) of our large print Low Mass altar cards to sell before we release for sale this new improved version in Blue, Gold, Red, and Stained Glass. While supplies last, this existing stock of prints and laminated altar cards is being sold at half price as reflected in our payment option buttons. These are perfectly good altar cards, they just don't have the Supplices and Corpus tuum prayers on them. Once each is depleted, we will print up the new version and begin to sell them once again at our standard retail price.

That's it for now. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

Altar Server Prayers Before And After Mass Sacristy Card

Hello everyone. Today, we are releasing a brand new Sacristy Card called "Altar Server Prayers Before And After Mass, 12 x 18 inches."

This new card contains the prayers of its cousin Sacristy Card that is letter size but this one is much larger and has an entirely different set of graphics.

We received a special request for the original card to be redesigned to a whopping 24 x 36 inches so that it could be read from across the room. Since the original graphics simply wouldn't do, we pulled some of our graphics from our popular "Vintage Diamond Low Mass Altar Cards" and found a very nice picture of a priest saying Mass with his altar boys. This custom-designed piece turned out so nice when it was framed that we simply had to create a smaller, more affordable version for other priests. Voila! This scaled down 12 x 18 version does the trick. The type is nice and large at 22 points so that it can be read from a distance. And, it is available as a print, laminated, or in a choice of two beautiful ornate gold frames.

For more information about this new Altar Server Sacristy card, visit us online on our business website. Also, if you have an idea for a special project, write or call us any time.
