- One-page files are mostly available in both .PDF and .JPG format.
- PDF would usually be the better format for printing or viewing, unless the fonts and text formatting don’t show up correctly on your system.
- When printing a .PDF from a computer, the print dialog has a “PageSizing / Size options” or “PageScaling” setting. If you’ve never changed its default choice, that setting will be set to a choice something like “Fit to Printable Area” instead of “None” or “Actual size”. But using “Fit” is usually wrong – most .PDF files are designed with enough white-space margin. Adding extra margin by default reduces the page’s content. It won’t look right. You need to change the “Page Sizing” setting to “Actual size ,” “None” or “100%” when you print a .PDF file that already has a white-space margin.
- Some printers allow you to print directly from a flash drive. Unfortunately, this may mean you’re stuck with the “Fit to Printable Area” choice. For such printers, I usually create special .PDF files without a white-space margin. If you need no-margin files, use the “.PDF[print-area]” links.
has published various uncopyrighted posters, leaflets, signs, songs and booklets under the Reinvention of Everyday Life name since the 1970s. The ideas in these works are intended to encourage change – in a provocative, fun, revolutionary and intriguing manner. Whether or not they succeed is left up to you. But if a few folks find them inspirational or useful, or if they can evoke a smile of understanding here and there, then maybe they can contribute a drop or two toward a global revolutionary change in our lives.
The rise of the 99%ers / Occupy movement has sparked a new interest in many of these ideas and created a new need for reflections on the history of these ideas and speculations on their future directions. In other words, it’s a new, fun context for the stuff...
So the purpose of this site is to distribute (for free) printable/viewable files of various signs, leaflets and booklets for 99%ers and other revolutionaries to express their feelings about or to expand their own understanding of the reinvention of everyday life.
so, here’sthestuff ...
--> One page works: Signs, Posters and Leaflets:
Most of the stuff is designed to be printed on a single sheet either 8½"x11" or 8½"x14". Can also be printed on A4, or enlarged for large poster-sized sheets.
Use 4 strips of double-stick outdoor carpet tape (5 to 6" long) on back of each bumper sticker.
Options for weatherproofing (before applying double-stick tape):
• 1> Don’t. Just laser print and re-print as needed. (Not the best environmentally.) • 2> Use vertical strips of clear package-sealing tape on both sides. • 3> Use light-weight laminating pouch on two slightly separated bumper stickers.
You may be familiar with a certain news broadcast (democracynow.org). Although I don’t really expect them to immediately change the name of their show, it does seem to me that “Plutocracy No!” is a bit more to the point – and perhaps somewhat less ambiguous.
Print on full sheet label stock (e.g. Avery 5165 / 8165). Weather-proof the front using strips of clear package-sealing tape across the short length of the sheet. (Shorter lengths of tape are easier to control.)
When Sandy visited NYC, she closed the NY Stock Exchange for two days in a row for the first time since 1888. If you listened closely you could hear her cry “Occupy Wall Street!”
...OK, this image associating Sandy and OWS is not meant seriously. The Occupy Sandy Relief effort’s success, though, does deserve mention. I’ve long thought the American Red Cross far less effective than the International Red Cross / Red Crescent. But they reached a new level of ineffectiveness when they couldn’t provide relief because roads were closed, while a spontaneous group of volunteers – whose main focus was not asking for money – was already there helping victims. http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy/ (But while this sign’s association of OWS & Sandy is not serious, there actually isno evidence that Occupy Sandy Relief provided any assistanceto the NY Stock Exchange...)
