Business Cards for the British Dupuytren's Society

I have been doing a lot of work for the British Dupuytren's Society over the last month or so since I became a trustee and I am hoping to see some of this blossom into success for the charity with ideally more money coming in so that we can spread the word and therefore help patients and the people treating them become more aware of the conditions that they have or are treating. 

Sample business cards
One of the things that was mentioned to me in an early hang out with Anna (another one of the trustees) was that we were getting to the point where we needed more business cards, just generic ones with a contact e-mail and the website so that we can start giving these out to the relevant people or if we ever get chatting to people about our conditions and people want to know more. I started doing a search for services that would do some printing for charities for free and came across the following link:

Basically what this company do is ask non-profit charities to simply say that they are supporting them on their website or in a blog post and they give you a budget to spend in that year on Business Cards and Stationery, Postcards, Newsletters, Posters, Calendars, Greetings Cards, Flyers, Leaflets, Forms, Reports, Labels and Stickers, Notepads so don't be surprised if you start to see some of the above coming out in BDS colours. 

Sample Flyers
The scheme that they offer at  Cards Made Easy means that we get the chance to spread the word and hopefully in the long run this will result in opportunities that would not otherwise be available to us.

For a small charity like us it is important that we can get some free printing so that we can raise the awareness to get the funds in so that we can expand the charity to better be able to achieve our goals. Hopefully the flyers, business cards and whatever other things we get can help us do this.
