Give a Nice Note / Give a Love Note

I was on a road trip, listening to The Cranberries song, Linger. The lyrics ‘you know I’m such a fool for you’ stood out to me enough to write them down. That turned into writing lists and lists of short expressions of love and gratitude.

These notes are intended to delight! For the person who sees the flyer and for the person receiving the note.

My hope is that it helps us all be a little kinder to one another day-to-day. I was at LAX and AUS airports yesterday and was sure to post up some up there—travellers (including me) need a little reminder to be more patient and nice.

I’m going to continue to post these up in Austin and cities I visit, and if you want to print off your own, I would greatly appreciate it! Now, more than ever, we need to spread love and good cheer.

INSTRUCTIONS TO PRINT AT HOME
 
+ The easiest option is to print on your home printer, any lightweight paper you’d like. Print the front, then feed the printed front through to print the back

+ Use scissors or an exact-o knife and ruler to cut along the dashed lines on the back of the flyer.
 
 
INSTRUCTIONS TO PRINT AT FEDEX OFFICE
 
+ I printed my flyers at FedEx Office. Find your nearest FedEx, call them and ask for their store email address to send your prints and instructions to.

+ Here are the exact instructions I sent to FedEx. You can paste these into your email and don’t forget to attach the files you want to print. And if you only printing one design, delete the text below relating to the one your omitting.

+ I chose Orchid and Ivory paper colors but they have so many fun ones! Go into FedEx and ask for their swatch book. I recommend any of the text weight (light weight) papers.

+ Use scissors or an exact-o knife and ruler to cut along the dashed lines on the back of the flyer.
