Dear Booksellers and Librarians,
It is in large part due to your wonderful efforts that MathStart has enjoyed such a tremendous level of success. In Italy, where I live part of the year, they say, “Grazie mille!” — a thousand thanks! And even that isn’t enough!
I have been working on a few ideas that I hope you will find helpful:
Please let me know what you think. And if you have any ideas for more web-based support materials, please share! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directions for Making Signs
Click on individual signs, or the Acrobat Reader symbol next to them, or the url codes beneath them to open the corresponding "pdf" files.
For best results, use Kinko’s or another professional copy service to output the art. Their copiers are more accurately calibrated for color. The copy service will want to output directly from the pdf files that are on the website, rather than from a photocopy you bring in. Kinko's accepts both in-store and email orders (be sure to call the store to make sure you've got the correct email address!).
If you order by email, cut'n'paste the url codes from the website into your order note.
For example, the url code for the pdf of the vertical "We Sell MathStart" sign is: www.stuartjmurphy.com/userimages/SIGNS/bookseller_vertical_hc.pdf
Printed out at 100%, the art fits on a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper.
Vertical signs measure 7 1/8" high x 9" wide.
Horizontal signs are 3 5/8" high x 9 1/4" wide.
If you enlarge 300% or more, ask the staff at the copy store for some set-up help to make sure the everything will look its best. This is usually an additional cost between $10 to $20, but sometimes it's free. Always ask! Also ask about educator discounts.
You can make counter signs, bookshelf signs, window signs, even banners!
