Our Artwork ...We get a lot of compliments about the high quality of our art work and printed materials.
Must be expensive right? Well it's not, because ... all of our artwork for our web site and printed material is provided to us free of charge. While some of our art is created by other staff, all of the high quality art is created by our volunteer Art Director in Greenville, S.C. His expertise in graphic design has been used by such companies as Michelin Tire Co., B.F. Goodrich, B.S.N.F. Rail Way, Mack Truck and many others to promote their products.
Printing cost have been kept low by seeking the most cost effective solution to meet our needs. For example, we purchased 5 thousand 4 x 6 glossy cards with our Logo, Mission and information about our approach to memorial design. We took advantage of a promotion and got this done for only $15.73 or only .003 cents each.
Our board member Jim Whited, is the owner of Whited Printing Co. He provides us with invaluable expertise and volunteer labor in his print shop to print, bind, cut, fold, perforate and and other services. All of this allows us to have very high quality materials printed at a cost that does not reflect it's high quality. Since Jim is a member of the Board of Directors, we do not hire him for any printing services to avoid or appear to have any conflict of interest or impropriety.
Sponsors and Supporters:
Sponsors and Supporters are what make projects like this happen.
Without them no non-profit can survive.
We have been blessed in our early stages to have support from well known companies in Lima whom we have been building relationships with on a personal level over the years by supporting their businesses. In tough economic times it is difficult for many to fund the projects they want, even those dear to their hearts.
Of course you know all this. Just a friendly reminder to support your local businesses, especially the small businesses in Allen County. Not just for a day or special season, but through out the year. So, while your here, See some of our sponsors.
This new web site does not cost us a dime!
We have completed the initial phases of our new web site design using content management software (C.M.S.). This system will make updates and additions to our web site much easier to accomplish. We are using "Joomla" a free open source C.M.S. platform. The only cost to us is massive amounts of time in developing the site. Some modules for the site were not free but they, and the hosting of the site are being provided by members of the Foundation.
AND IT'S RESPONSIVE:
The site also responds automatically to smart phones, Ipad's and smaller browser windows to fit the width of your screen with no need for a horizontal scroll bar even when you scale down your browser window.
There are many modules available for this system and we will be trying many more out. You will see design and color changes as we continue to develop and get support from our Art Director.
As we work on the site, you may see us fall back on our previous system at various times.
Joomla is used by many large corporations including You can learn all about Joomla at this link. http://www.joomla.org/
