Yes, folks! I'm begging again! ;)

As you all know, the leaflet (<a href='' target='_blank'>Dyspraxia Leaflet</a>) is finished. We have had some great feedback from you guys, so we want to start distributing it.

We have an Inkjet printer and could produce the leaflets ourselves, but if they were printed on a professional laser printer, we think they would look so much better.

We have been making enquiries and so far we have had quotes for 500 leaflets between £200-£500, which is a lot of money, considering Mum and Dad will be paying for it themselves, and we'll need a lot more than 500 in the end!

We just wondered, if anyone out there is in the printing business, would they consider helping us out? We need the leaflets printed on 100 gram ivory or cream coloured matt paper and produced as a tri-fold leaflet.

If you think you may be able to help us, please contact me at

Hi Matt and Helen. :lol:
I' ve seen the leaflet last week and I think it has turned out really well. My brother Matthew gave me an enlarged copy of all the cartoon pictures aswell and I really like them. But I wanted to congratulate both of you on a fantastic leaflet. I think this will really work, fingers crossed :rolleyes:
I was too busy last week to reply at all to the e - mail and to say on my opinion of the leaflet.
:P I' m exhausted. I' ve had so much on. Brownies on Tuesday, I' m helping for my D of E, Spanish lesson on Wednesday night, Go - Karting on Thursday which was great fun :D and Bowling with Venture Scouts last night. Also today I was having my hair hi lighted. It cost me £46. :o . Expensive. Anyway I' ve got lots to do. Busy bee ;)

Hello Abby,
Great to hear from you and pleased you are impressed with the leaflet. Thanks so much for finding Elsa for us....the illustrations are fabulous. :lol:

Sounds like you have been really busy. How are the Spanish lessons going? Hope the £46 :o was worth it and you are pleased with your hair. Have had mine highlighted recently too, but I have a hair dresser come to my home, so only pay £27!

Take care Abby and keep in touch,
Helen :)

The Foundation have been made aware of the leaflet, but seem disinterested. :angry: The Essex local group are very impressed with it and are printing copies themselves for distribution within their county, which is great.
We have come to a halt at the moment, because we had a problem with our printer, but Darren has just invested in a laser printer B) , so we are all set again.
The new printer will allow us to print at a reduced price per copy.....4p per copy, instead of 8p per copy, plus postage at 21p per copy. BUT..........any help anyone can give, to help take the strain would be fabulous, even if it is only print a few yourselves for distribution to your own local schools.....just let us know which schools you send to s we do not waste money and duplicate!!
