However. Mail (check/money order/well concealed cash) or via paypal. I'll PM my address out to everybody for mailing their recipes/covers, and that's the same address you will be able to mail payment to me. If anybody wants to paypal it to me, my paypal email is katspear@excite.com

Should the cover be cardstock, cardboard, paper...? I was wondering because if it's cardboard, it might be too thick for you to punch holes in it. Maybe we should do the holes our selves?

I have a coil binder at home and at work. It can punch through cardboard, just not thick corrated(sp?) cardboard. It's best if I punch it to make sure it matches up.

How big of a margin would we need to leave for the coil binding, please? And is that margin on the short side of the rectangle, or the long side?
For that matter, do we need to leave a margin to the left of the recipe?
And how big is a recipe card?
Thanks! This sounds like so much fun!  Grin

About half an inch on the long side (8.5") is good for the binding margin.
You don't need to leave a margin on the recipe card, and you can make it whatever size you want.
I will be scanning all of the cards (unless you scan it yourslef and email it to me) and will fit them to the page size.
Also, if you plan on decorating your card remember it will be printed in black and white.

Just wanted to mention, I would like to receive only one recipe from everyone, but if you can't narrow it down, two is alright as well.

Since we're not creating for any specific person, we could start creating as soon as we sign up, right?  Just trying to give myself oodles of time to make an awesome cover.   Grin
