I know we've brought this up before but I just wanted to suggest it again. :mrgreen:
I would love one page in the magazine, it doesn't even have to be perforated, where there are say 4 or 6 little cards that can be cut out with the name of Allergic Living Magazine etc.. I must have at least 4x again in the past couple weeks hunted for scrap paper to write to pass on the magazine's info. Usually written in in eyeliner. :roll: I know most must get tossed out as you know what it's like, you find scrap paper in your purse and toss it. But a proper card (even if just on regular magazine paper) would really remind them what the title meant and what it was for.

....and my eyeliner would stop getting worn down. :rofl
(mental note...tell my tween to stop taking my pens out of my purse without returning them). :lol:

I run with an "older" crowd.... still old school and we like paper....but we are learning and this is a GREAT idea. Sometimes we are a little forgetful as well. :lol:

Or a PDF on this website that people can print out, maybe? That way you can have unlimited copies. :)

Thanks for ideas, guys.

The subscription cards are in a lot of copies ... remind me, are they no longer in subscriber issues?

Will raise with publisher. Online for sure seems like a no-brainer.

Online would be great, I'd absolutely print them out and keep them in my bag.

bc - highly recommend the little notepads with a pen that keeps the notepad closed. The pens are tiny and the kids don't take them! I flip the pages that I have written on up and then close the notepad - looks messy but lets me quickly get to a new page while keeping the old ones.

This one is even in our Allergy Awareness teal: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/gifts/Fli ... kwsec=Home

Just a little off topic but that's me! :happydance
