Our (old) MARCH vinyl banner lasted for a few years and eventually wore
out. So tonight I made some MARCH flags.
I put our logo and some text in an 17x11 (landscape) file, printed that
onto bright yellow paper, and make six color copies. Then I put two
copies back-to-back and laminated them in one sheet. Next I attached
each two-sided laminated sheet to a 5-ft. section of white PVC, using
two 1" metal screws and washers. I know it sounded terrible but it
actually worked out well. I made three sets. The plan is to attach
them to our tables tomorrow using those squeeze-clamps.
Blurry cameraphone pic is at http://www.snarc. net/flag. jpg .... I have
to say they don't stink! We're supposed to have two six-foot-long
tables tomorrow. It will look cool when visitors see a row of bright
flags towering above our booth.
Perhaps some future version can include working blinkenlights!
I'm also bringing blue tablecloths. (Blue and yellow are the college's
colors; I only realized that after buying stuff.)
PS - Justin - my MARCH credit/debit card is no longer a virgin. :)
