"Tri-Fold" tracts

When downloaded, these small handouts are formatted so that after printing on both sides of the paper, they can be fan folded with their titles face up, and conveniently read by turning the pages. They are printed in 'landscape' format, and the final width is about 3 ½ inches after folding the paper in three sections like the picture on the left. The paper will have to be cut to about 5¾ in the length direction prior to folding, to limit the final height. Note that each downloaded file is compressed in ZIP format, and expands to a Microsoft Word (97) document. Unfortunately, even if you have Microsoft word, it is possible that an older version may not load these files. The files also require the "Century Schoolbook" font for body text, which is a font chosen for it's readability in the small (8.5pt) text size needed. Title text also requires the "Brush Script" and "ParkAvenue BT" fonts. You can check whether these "TrueType©" fonts are installed on your machine by viewing the list in the font pull down menu while running the WORD program. If not, it is likely that the text will not fit correctly into the tri-fold template without some additional work, and readability may suffer. Should there be any problem, and you would like to make some of these tracts, you can email me and I can arrange to send you a few clean copies, which you can then duplicate with a simple copy machine.

If you have no copy equipment available and can't print these yourself, I can make some for you by hand, in limited quantities of course. Eventually I will have these (and future) tracts printed, so you can simply ask for some. The main advantage of having the files is if you wish to edit them, for example to provide your own contact information as a personal ministry tool. I do ask however that if you do any such editing, you leave the author and ministry name intact. Currently they only contain the author, the ministry name and street/email addresses and do not contain the web site. At the time this was written, this site was being built on a "residential" account web space, and it will eventually need to and have it's own domain.
