Looking for a beautiful way to teach children (or yourself) the Hidden Words? This strip of six postcards presents the first six Hidden Words in a beautiful format that is both child-friendly and appropriate for adults. 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. Leave it as a strip and read it like a book or use it for crafts, or cut it into six separate cards that can be given away or mailed. You will find dozens of uses for them.
The theme of this set is nature, with impressionist images of butterflies, trees and stars. It coordinates with our kid’s prayer postcard strip and our healing and assistance strip, giving you 18 cards in all. Buy them separately or as a set. They are so affordable that you will want to give them away by the hundred.
Image 1 is of a butterfly to represent a pure heart.
Image 2 is the “Eye of God Nebula” to represent Justice.
Image 3 is another nebula that suggests the veils of eternity.
Image 4 is an image of trees that appear to glow with the “spirit of life.”
Image 5 is a rainbow, the symbol of the Covenant, which can be summarized as “Love Me that I may love thee.”
Image 6 is more butterflies in a paradise of love.
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.
