Looking for affordable and reverent gifts for kids? This strip of six postcards doubles as a children’s prayer book, with a short quotation from a prayer on each panel. You get FIVE strips of SIX cards for only $7.50 (that’s 30 cards). Printed on glossy card stock, they are scored and folded to make a kind of fan-folded booklet that can be 1) glued together as children’s board books, 2) cut into six separate cards and given away or mailed, or 3) left as strips for crafts and decorations. You will find dozens of uses for them.
The images are kid-friendly, with pictures of children and animals. The size is right for small hands, and the price is right for small budgets. You will be able to give them to every child you know.
For older kids, it can be combined with either of our two other postcard strips (under “postcard booklets” in our postcard category) to make a 12 or 18-page booklet.
These assorted Baha’i Postcards are sold in strips. Each strip includes six 4×6 full-color postcards. They can be cut and used as you would any postcards or glued together to make inexpensive board books. They were designed at customer request for communities who need something under a dollar to make and give to children. Note: when you buy a pack of 5 for $6, you are actually getting 5 strips of 6 postcards for a total of 30 individual cards for only 20 cents each.
There are three versions. Click on the descriptions of the individual booklets below to see all 18 images.
Note: Karen says that the biggest problem with these new postcard booklets is that people don’t understand why they are so inexpensive. They think they must be $6 per booklet, not $6 for a set of five. So let me explain: Someone asked me to create a prayerbook that they could afford to give away freely to children – not $5 each or even $3 each, but around $1 each. So that was my mission – to design something I could sell for under a dollar. I worked backwards from there, exploring every format and paper choice I could imagine, until I hit upon this unique format and found a printer willing to produce it. Now, when you buy 25 booklets, they cost only 80 cents each.
I would much rather see prayers in the hands of 5,000 children and make $1 each than to make prayer books for 500 kids and make $10 each. It’s just the way I do things. I hope you approve.
