Members of our team, including myself, write a bit of poetry but for a long while did not have a useful purpose for it besides sharing it with each other. Recently we have begun typing our poems bookmark size, printing them on colorful cardstock and inserting them into a plastic bookmark sleeve. These are perfect to have on hand to insert into a card or to just hand someone who needs encouragement. This is such a simple but profound way to use the gifts God has given us.
Make sure to attach a copyright to your poem and contact info to your bookmark.
If you are not a poet feel free to use some of our poetry. We are working on making it printer friendly. For links to our poems and downloads click here. Most of the poems have a link attached to the poem page for a pdf download.
Available plastic sleeves
We ordered our plastic sleeves from http://www.clearbags.com. This is a bulk company so there is a minimum shipping fee. I’m sure there are other places to order as well. One mistake we made was making the bookmarks slightly too long for greeting cards. In order to fit inside a card envelope to plastic sleeves should be no longer than 7 1/8 inches.
