A Few Points of Explanation
With time, there will be several versions of the cards that vary by
» Translation of the Small Catechism.
» Form factor (index card size, post card size, standard appearance, designed appearance)
All users should download two files from this page:
» The cards in the desired translation and form factor (select under heading Translations and Form Factors below)
Once you have read the instructions in the Two Ways file, you might also wish to download
Printer Variations. When printing PDF files, different models of printers have different ways of scaling the documents. This can affect how well the cards align in card stock products such as Avery pre-perforated 3” x 5” index cards and Avery 5½ x 4¼ postcards, and whether the dividers print at full size. We recommend that you print a single page of any PDF file onto plain paper and check the scaling. Then if the scaling is unsatisfactory, chose different scaling options in your print dialog on your computer. If no scaling option seems to let the cards align well on pre-perforated card stock, the best option is to print on non-perforated stock and cut the cards out of the sheets of card.
