I've just ordered 15,000 postcards -- time to go to the PPUK shop and arrange to receive some!

I won't receive them until 22nd February. I'll then start repackaging them and posting them out, and when I do so I'm hoping to be able to e-mail out notifications. Still working out with the Treasurer how best to handle that. ;-)

I've just posted to the PPUK blog with some reduced-size images of the final design. Thanks to crumble and andrewtindall for their excellent work!

Just to clarify: the way to order cards has changed. You now need to order and pay for them via the PPUK shop. This is intended to make it easier to keep track of donations and comply with the Electoral Commission regulations. Sorry about the change; tomorrow, I'll send out private messages to all those who expressed an interest in cards in this thread reminding them to re-place their orders.

Thanks for supporting Project Postcard!

Postcards are now shipping! The first orders should be hitting letterboxes tomorrow or Saturday. Larger orders will take longer to fulfil.

Sorry for the delay -- I only got the orders from the last week or so sent to me earlier today. I'll make sure they get posted out tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'd really appreciate some feedback from those of you who've already received your flyers. What worked well? What could be improved? How have you used your flyers? What sort of reactions did you get from people you gave them to?

Thanks! :)

http://1-2-print.co.uk -- it's a German company. They were printed in Germany and shipped over here by express courier.

Only about 2000 flyers left from this batch -- should we print more the same, or are there changes/improvements that people would like to see made?

Yours were posted on the 18th February 2010 by 1st class mail. Drop me an e-mail (p.brett@pirateparty.org.uk) and we can figure out if they were sent to the correct address.

The reactions I have got from people have been quite mixed. When I hand them to people age 16-19 I get the reaction "OMG making illegal downloading legal!!" and then the reaction I got from one of my teachers was "I would rather have the government monitor everything I do so that I can live safely without the worry of terrorists etc. I have nothing to hide." It took me a very long time to explain how dangerous giving the government that much power is and the reasons we are doing all this but he still didn't seem too convinced. My Grandad got the wrong impression from the cards also, he said he agrees with a lot of it but seemed to get the impression that we just want to make all music free and not give the artists anything.. I had to spend about an hour explaining it to him before he understood it.

So from seeing this, people are clearly getting the wrong impression and I think that things need to be better explained.

I think it would be good to get some inspiration and ideas from this man: http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_s ... ivity.html

Thanks for the feedback, itomath.

Would you be willing to try and write some text for Mk. 2 cards (of approximately the same format as the current text)? Doesn't need to be particularly polished or perfectly phrased -- if you can get the ideas you think we should be conveying down, others can polish it.

I'll consider it although I am not very good at this kind of thing. Like Duke says, we should probably wait until the manifesto is finished.

I will note down any ideas that I get.
