Library Movie Bookmarks

One 8.5x11 inch page accommodated five bookmarks.

Our High Springs library asked for 500 bookmarks to promote their Afternoon at the Movies series that happens every Thursday. So I gathered up a variety of different clip art images ranging from film reels, to cameras, to movie ticket stubs, then worked out a combination that worked well with the required language and printed them out, five to an 8.5x11 inch page, then trimmed to size, leaving a narrow white border around them, due to their irregular shape along the edges.

The ticket stub had been a different shape--stubbier, you might say--with the admit text displayed horizontally on different tickets, so I stretched it out from the middle enough to fill the width of the paper, which also enabled me to fill it with the required language. The background has a slight colour merge in it, and a muted red and olive green compliments the background colour to give the tickets a retro feel.
