Vistaprint.com is another good option.  I had cards made there and they turned out great.

Plenty of printers out there who will put the CAP and or your squadron logo on a notecard for a reasonable price.


One online printer I've used before to make notecards for various clients and with good results: https://www.printplace.com/products/note-cards.  I personally like ordering the 5x7 cards on 14pt uncoated cover and then adding the A7 envelopes to them so the card and envelope are both nicely branded.

One of my issues with the locking of threads is that the moderators seem to be inconsistent.  There are plenty of ask and answer threads that they let go on an on long after the original question was answered in the second post, others they lock down almost immediately.  Consistency is important, both in the enforcement of rules and what is and is not acceptable behavior.

I'm not sure adding more layers and insulting those we rely on is the best approach.

We are all retention officers. This goes doubly so for commanders.

As one of the evil, draconian moderators, I have, in the past several weeks, received requests to reopen a couple of threads. I have done so, with the proviso that there be new content, worthy of the effort. The requestors have, for the most part, accomplished that.

The offer remains open. I, or another mod, will review the request, gather additional info as needed, and approve or deny. The easiest method is to simply report the post you want revived, and it will go to all the mods for action. Make a case for your request in the comments, and we'll give it a look.

It's a razors edge...

I'll play the devil's advocate for a minute and argue, at least to some extent, in the other direction.  We have a huge challenge (understatement) in attracting and retaining qualified pilots.  This is due in large part to the unwieldy amount of b.s. and paperwork one has to endure to fly in this organization.  This latest message certainly doesn't move the needle in a meaningful direction in that respect.

Anecdotally, and related to the issue above, I see/hear a huge variance in the way pilots are evaluated, almost to the point of harassment during Form 5's.  I'm talking about CFI's that are having to complete 5 hour check rides and then being raked over the coals.  There are check pilots in our organization that very much let their role go to their head (aka God syndrome) and there is no real check an balance to the system.  They are every bit as much of the problem, especially when we consider that typically there are only a handful that control the funnel through which everyone must pass.  As opposed to evaluating and understanding a correct solution may have multiple approaches/styles, they attempt to impose only their approach with no possible deviation.  That's not OK.

I don't have the answer to this problem but to me it's probably very much related to the same type of scenario that prompts letters like this.  I'm not sure adding more layers and insulting those we rely on is the best approach.  If someone is going to put out a letter with the type of strong wording this one contains, it better be backed with a lot of supporting quantitative evidence.

And that’s without going into the fact that they are called Distinctive Unit Insignia and are not crests at all, from a heraldic standpoint. (The “crest” is the thing that goes at the top of an armorial achievement. Often seen stop a “helm” (helmet) but can also be placed above a “torse” (the twisted rope-looking thing). In CAP, for example, the crest is the eagle on top of everything.

Bernie, I've known you for a long time. Next time I see you, I'm gonna try to kick you. :)

FTFY.

Could it be that we might see some sort of 'suggestion' or stronger to not use the same FRO all of the time, for all of our flights?  That last line of (independent) review is kinda important.
