Make sure you stop by the booth. The CN part is unmanned and we are not broadcasting, but it could be a nice place to put your feet up.

We didn't use perforated stock, I just whipped out my pocket knife and cut those suckers. I may bring my paper cutter this time around.




I just printed out the one I sent you on a sheet of paper, doubled up the paper and stuck it into a badge holder and it doesn't look too bad. And I do have some lanyards and badge holders that I'll bring.

Sweet! I was looking for something else a month or two ago and ran across the generic ID card sheets. Think I could find them this weekend? Nope. Got new carpet last year and I'm still looking for stuff when we had to move everything.

Officially on Plan B (David, yours printed out fine). Windows box blue screened on me and will need to be rebuilt. Don't have Photoshop on the Mac so my tools are limited. I think I need a Mac Mini.

So blank cards will be available and I'll have copies of last years cards for you silly repeat visitors.

Did you print it right from Paint? If so, you can transfer any of those that you have using Copy and Paste. That's how I did mine. I used the template that you sent me, hilited my name tag, copied it and then pasted it in Paint. I had to mess with it a little to resize it, but it wasn't difficult.

No, I grabbed it from the email, inserted into the .odt file of generic tags, stretched to fit the space I provided and printed. On the Mac. Used NeoOffice as the office suite which is based on Open Office.org.

That's how it turned out. The idea was to edit the current tag stock and make updates. In the end, it was just yours. I was too cheap to buy Acrobat Pro and in the end it appears the tags were images anyway and my version of Photoshop is pretty old so I'm not sure just how much I could have done in any event.

At some point I have to put in a day rebuilding my windows box and I'm asking myself if its' worth it.
