Church Business and Invitation Cards can be powerful outreach tools, but to accomplish all they can and should for your church you need to pack as much useful information in them as possible. One key piece of information is a map to your event.
Even in these days of Google Maps, Mapquest and GPS, a simple, paper-based map is invaluable to give people an immediate and practical way to get to your church or event. It is a challenge to provide one because if you try to use one of the maps from the Internet they have too much information to shrink down in size.
You need to create your own simplified version. This is very easy to do with MS Publisher and the short video below will show you how.
IMPORTANT NOTE before you watch the video:
This video shows you how to take a screen capture of a map and then use it to easily create your own map in MS Publisher. I used Snagit, my favorite screen capture program and one I highly recommend to do the screen capture. If you do not have Snagit or any screen capture software, here are two options:
- Get a free trial of Snagit at www.snagit.com
- Go to this excellent article about free screen capture software and download one of the products. I have not used these (keep wanting to try one, but love Snagit so much....), but this is a trustworthy site just click the URL and it will take you to the site: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-screen-capture-utility.htm
