    Off late Ive been thinking of designing a single page brochure or a small card about joining TFI, its advantages for Fiat owners. Interested TFIans can keep some printouts in the car & whenever you see a Fiat car parked around you can keep a brochure in the wiper or give directly if there is someone. I think this will help more Fiat owners to know about the forum, to get in touch with other Fiat owners & also will help in developing the forum. Why I felt this is because being a Fiat owner, it took me really long time to know about this forum & the advantages of it. I know taking print outs is gonna cost you, but when considering the passion you have towards Fiat, I think spending a small amount doesn't matter :)

    Even Iam sure about that...Avventura is gonna be the selling point for Fiat in the coming days. The idea is mainly not to increase the users. Its just to make other owners aware about the forum & how its gonna help them :)

    Kailasmenon, its a good thought but remember that not everyone likes a brochure hanging or stuck near the wiper. I for one never even look at these pamphlets and simply throw them away after getting annoyed at seeing one.

    The very sight of a brochure or paper between the wiper blades irritates me to the core, and at the back of my mind will be the choicest expletives. I just dont like it. There may be a lot of people who who will carefully take it and read the contents. There can be many like me too. :D

    You are right. No one likes it. But once they find that its a useful thing for them, they'll be happy that you kept it. And unlike you, most of them at least give a look at it before throwing them away :)

    Im sure once they see the content, esp related to their car, they wont feel irritated. Many a times, these kind of small brochures had helped me personally. For eg, once I was in another city, one such brochure helped to find a car wash centre :)

    I think small cards or A5 size slips. But again, this can be annoying to some. I suggest try with a print-out and xerox with small quantity.

    And don't forget to proof read it.. :lol:

    Here is a site named vistaprint.in where you can print business cards for cheap rate. Rs.135 + Rs.65 for 100 cards. You'll get a card holder free too. Here is a snapshot of what Im gonna order. Not yet given the order. Thought I'll proceed after getting few inputs. I can add other details if any before giving the order.

    Wow man you are very serious indeed. That card looks great. You could actually have about 296 cards for Rs. 200/- budget.
    Should you take a print from the cornershop xerox guys. They have these colour print machines. Hope that helps.
    They will probably even cut those for you for a small fee like Rs. 30 or so. Attached is an image from Coreldraw to shows the ups.

    First print costs Rs. 30-35 and subsequent about 15 or less atleast here in Mumbai. About 12 prints I figured for that budget.
