SOWCA Postcards

Postcards provide a concise yet powerful way to graphically convey your concerns to politicians and public servants. Make your own or use those we've provided below.

High resolution versions of the postcard format images below can be downloaded as PDF files from the links below. Each PDF file has four images on an A4 page, ready for printing onto light cardboard.  When prinitng from Acrobat use 'fit to printable area'.

The postcards can be printed relatively cheaply at places such as Officeworks e.g. just over a dollar a page using 300 GSM - so 25 cents a card.

Print them for your own use, or to give to others or for use at a community event stall. They're very popular - reflecting deep community concern!
 
Add your groups URL to the cards, or contact us and we'll customise for you.
 
Send your message to Barry O'Farrell, Brad Hazzard, Chris Hartcher, Katrina Hodgkinson, Robin Parker, Jai Rowell and your local member of parliament. If you include your address you should get a reply.
