New NCDD Postcards — want some??

Andy and I put together some new postcards (featuring attendees of our conferences — you might recognize some of them!). The postcards are simple, with a short description of NCDD on the back, as well as some contact info.

We got plenty to share, and we’re wondering if some of you would like a handful — or even a small stack — sent to you to distribute at conferences you’re attending or running, public meetings, or workshops you’re giving.  Distributing these postcards helps raise awareness of this great network we’re all involved in, and it could help you show people that the work you’re doing is part of a larger movement towards more engaged public and group processes.

Here’s what the front looks like:

And here’s the back…

Let me know if you’d like some postcards sent your way, and about how many (50? 100? 200?). Add a comment below or email me at sandy@ncdd.org.

Also – I’d like to take this opportunity to ask NCDD members what kinds of materials like this (affordable-to-print materials like postcards, brochures, handouts) would be most useful for you.  I’ve long dreamed of creating different postcards for different types of dialogue and deliberation processes, where on one side people would see the name, logo, and some inspiring text about the process they’re experiencing, and on the other they’d see more general text that lets them know that what they’re doing is part of a broader movement towards more participatory, empowered problem-solving in America, and sends them somewhere to learn more (like NCDD’s Beginner’s Guide).

Would something like that be useful for NCDDers?  What would be useful to you instead, or in addition, to something like that?  Please share your thoughts here!

    YES, I would _love_ to have these to hand out at meetings and the like. They look really great, just the right amount of information and the graphic is perfect. I’m only now becoming familiar with NCDD, and thrilled to have made the connection. Is this new for you ?

    I’d love to have 50-100. As far as other materials are concerned, I love your idea for more postcard designs. Brochures and handouts have a tendency to get lost if they’re read at all, but for certain situations they make sense of course…..a postcard is handled like a photograph and is comfortable to read while talking and exchanging a lot of information – not too much or little there.

    • Thanks for your interest, Theresa — happy to send you 100 postcards! We have had postcards before; but it’s been a while. For the past couple of years, we’ve been offering little “Moo cards” to our members to distribute at their trainings and events. The Moo cards are adorable (http://ncdd.org/6918), but a little too small for some purposes and much more expensive than the postcards.
