Ides of Trump Protest Postcards

I will be participating in the Ides of Trump postcard protest and you can join the event! 

To make this protest more fun and relieve a little stress, you can color your own postcard. These prints are for regular 300 dpi jpg for 8.5 x 11 inch letter size paper.

Paste the art and the backing onto chipboard (cereal box) with a glue stick, rubber cement or YES! paste and it will be very sturdy. Some Mail Artists that make artist postcards like to use a sewing machine to stitch the edges with colored thread. I made hatch marks to show where to cut through the center; cut the gray areas off the edges. This is because many home printers do not do well for full bleed printing.

If you feel kind and benevolent, PayPal me a $1 to artg33k74 -at- gmail and I shall be most grateful.

Here are the some details on the protest from its Facebook page:

THE IDES OF TRUMP

Just as the Romans did for Julius Caesar, you and I will now do for Donald J. Trump — only with postcards.

On March 15th, each of us will mail the White House a postcard that publicly expresses our vocal opposition to the new president. Each of us — every protester from every march, each congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  1. Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Create your own cards, buy them, share them, it doesn’t matter as long as you write#TheIdesor #TheIdesOfTrump on them somewhere.
  2. Take a picture of your cards and post them on social media (tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump or #TheIdes, please). This will help us verify our numbers.
  3. Spread the word! Everyone on Earth can let Washington know their opinion of the President. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.
  4. Then, on March 15th, mail your cards to:

The President (for now)
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

  1. Get ready for the NEXT postcard campaign, and the next, and the next — because we’re not going away. We will make ourselves heard by joining together. And together, we will wield the kind of political clout that can’t be ignored.

THE ONLY RULE IS NO VIOLENCE, THREATS OF VIOLENCE, OR INSINUATIONS OF VIOLENCE. This is about being heard, via postcards. We understand that the ides of March has a history, but that’s not what we are — in ANY WAY — calling for here.

      People have been using a lot of online print on demand services, too.
