Emergency Contact Wallet Cards

Leave it to me to push the bounds of DIY - but I wanted to share this. I'm in the process of creating Emergency Contact Lists for the fridge (for babysitters, etc.) and for wallets in case of car accident, etc. I started out to do it myself, but found a beautiful template. Unfortunately I haven't loaded Office 07 (but will now) so cannot open it, but for those of you who are lucky enough to have it, you can download, fill in your info, and have a card ready to laminate :)

For those of you who are anti-MS, sorry, I just like this because it is saving me the time of having to start from scratch. I hope someone finds it useful!

I cannot get to it

M$ Office on my work PC is not recent enough and I do not have install permissions.

A Request: Could someone with access to this document open it with OpenOffice and post a converted version ?

Still. Loading. Office.

Resource hog. But that is another story. If it ever gets loaded and installed, I will try to convert and post. Sorry about that.

Bother

I have a limited use version of the new MS Office suite on a new computer, but trying to download the template took me to never, neverland, wanting me to verify, probably purchase. I ran away. There were several interesting templates for emergency info.

Someone must work in an office or has a friend with the new software and can download the templates and try to convert.

Enjoy the holidays.

Sorry about that.

I have managed it now - I downsaved it to Old Office Versions and to an Open Office Version. I'll try to figure out how to upload them now.

I dood it myself

I posted a MS OFfice version under Templates. Unfortunately it looks like crap in Open Office.

I re-dood it

and attached it to this thread.

Looks fine in Open Office to me

Thanks, ygor!!

I appreciate it. And hopefully so will someone else.

Me too.

I also appreciate both the original post, and ygor's efforts to make it into a format I can open in OOo. Nice job folks!

In that case, here's the fridge version

Had to put it under templates, since I cannot link - I did this one from scratch so I was able to convert it myself.

That looks great

and it's up and publicly available

Forgot to mention

For those with smaller kids - I'm also going to print a contact card on diskette (remember those?) labels and stick one on each car seat.

What to print on...

Sorry, I don't really have tips for the template itself, but I have a small wallet contact list that I created for myself that I print on ink jet photo paper. If you don't have a way to laminate, I've found that this holds up pretty well.

There are options for lamination

The "cold lamination" is just a special self-adhesive and then there is always clear Con-Tact paper.

Clear wide packing tape

Clear wide packing tape would be good if the cards are fairly small -- Business card size works with my Scotch brand packing tape. And it's thinner than most laminating plastics, which makes it less bulky, though not as sturdy.

I used some self laminating product on my social security card back in the mid sixties and it's still like new, so those things are durable.
