I make no representation whatsoever as to the quality of individual printing results. However, my publisher recommends the following regarding the postcard and bookmark files:
Best results are obtained by bringing the files to a quick printer or offset printer for professional printing.
Postcards print two to a page on 8 1/2" x 11" paper. They should be color photocopied on 80-100 lb. cover stock, coated or uncoated, and professionally cut.
If you decide to print the postcards at home, use a laser printer, and print them on Avery Ink Jet Clean Edge Postcards #3611, 5389, or 8389. Separate them by folding or breaking them along the perforated lines.
Bookmarks print five to a page on 8 1/2" x 11" paper. They should be color photocopied on 80-100 lb. cover stock, coated or uncoated, and professionally cut.
Here's your free stuff:
Record of the 327th Fighter Control Squadron (1945) This is the original version of the real-life history of Eli Ellison's unit, the 327th Fighter Control Squadron. It was published in Weimar, Germany in 1945 and contains numerous rare wartime photographs. My father's name appears on Page 38. In 2000, construction workers discovered hard copies of this version of the "Record" under the floorboards of the print shop where it was published. The Adobe Acrobat file is over 16MB in size and requires a DSL or better connection for download. Please be patient. The file requires size and orientation adjustments for proper viewing, but it's well worth the time.
