I am getting really serious about attending TCOYD in DC in February. I'd like to put together a badge with my avatar on it with my TuDiabetes identity and then give out cards or something to people.
But I can't for the life of me see any resources for that? Is such a thing useful? Does DHF want me to do this? Is there a standard badge that I might print up just like my badge for a page? What about some sort of card to print up with the website?
Watch out for copyright stuff w/ Alf! A band I was in in college ran into some issues and got a "cease and desist" letter from the attorney!
Actually, I think I am safe. Apparently, Mad fended off a lawsuit by claiming they stole it from someone else.
When Mad was sued for copyright infringement by a woman claiming to hold the rights to the image, the magazine argued that it had copied the picture from various materials dating back to 1911 (which pre-dated the plaintiff's own claim). The lawsuit was unsuccessful, and the boy's face is now permanently associated with Mad.
I really do need to be careful about saying anything about Scientology.
I love this idea. The easiest thing to do would probably be to create something in Word and then buy some stock business cards at Staples and print it out. Shouldn't be too hard.
My Ambassador contact has been Emily Walton. I get postcards and copies of an elegant DHF brochure from her. And Andreina designed a sign for me that I could post on wall or table for meet-ups. I do believe the badges are a really great idea!.......
I sent a note to Emily and she is going to help me out. I'm going to urge DHF to try to get some resources on-line for this.
I had some cards printed out by VistaPrint that I designed to hand out, if I can still find the jpg do you want it?
Hoping to attend too if life cooperates!
bsc---the tcoyd link won't let me get past box to join super-imposed over the home page. I probably don't object to joining, but resent being manipulated into it when all I want to do is find out who they are and what they do. Any suggestions?.....
There may be something with your browser settings. You should not have to join, you should be able to see the pages and register without joining. Here is a link directly to the DC event, perhaps that will work.
Are you going to travel all the way from Portland to join us?
I hope Emily sends you some of our brochures, they are beautiful. wish I could go, but I just was there visiting my mom. I'd love to meet you!
