    I am planning to go to NJ Cars and Coffee September 29th. I am rushing a order of info postcards to be printed to have available.

    Below is what I put together (after taking some clues from a ToddRLockwood post from earlier this year.)

    If others are interested, I can print a larger quantity. They will be full color on the front, and grey-scale on the back. 5.47" x 4.21" on 100% Post-Consumer Waste, 100-lb. (265g/m2) Premium Matte Recycled Paper from VistaPrint.

    Depending on the total quantity ordered, I am thinking they will cost $40 for 250 or $60 for 500, shipping included (depending on shipping, possibly $5 more.)

    I want to order these by late Wednesday (9/17/13), so if you want some, please IM right away.

    What do you all think of this design? Thanks for your input.

    (Sorry about the "Proof" on the picture, that is from VistaPrint.)

    Looks great NJ - answers most questions you'd expect! Might want to fix the "kHw" (vs kWh) in the 2nd to last bullet. Sorry to call it out, but don't want you to go to print with that one. ;)

    I'd use the actual TESLA logo font on the headlines.

    Do you know what that is called?

    To do that might require me to redo the whole card on my computer instead or the VistaPrint editor.

    You can buy the font "Emblem" from David Occhino but it's a pain to recreate the logo so it might be easier to cut and paste the logo from another source you have to place over the ocean sky.

    What format are you providing to the printer? PDF?

    I might be too late, but bullet point #6 has a typo. Should be "Coast to coast Tesla Superchargers by the end of Winter 2013".

    Thanks Tnawara. Unfortunately I did send the order in already.

    I still have 250 cards (with the typo) available, if anyone is interested. PM me

    Just curious, are you allowed to use the Tesla logo?
