to all NATIVE SONS AND DAUGHTERS PROGRAMS® longhouses!
National longhouse is proud to announce the arrival of its
new 2010-11 program flyer. Now available to all NS&D longhouses at no cost! This double-sided, full color flyer is perfect for
drumming up new membership when your longhouse participates in recruitment events, parades, school distribution, grocery
store postings, etc.
How is a free flyer possible?
It’s possible for three main reasons: through a subsidy generated from the annual dues that your longhouse pays
to National Longhouse, Ltd.; through the combined buying power of our longhouses; and through the generosity of our vendor
who provides us with a color printing rate that is much lower than any big-box store would charge for black and white copying!
No home-generated flyer here! This flyer is professional grade. Printed in full color ink, on heavy-weight, gloss paper. It has the look
and feel that will command respect for a program that is serious in the way that it markets its product.
Why should our longhouse use this flyer?
The best reason . . . it’s free! Its use allows longhouses to reallocate budgeted printing funds to other areas of their program.
A comparable flyer of the same printing quality would cost a single longhouse substantially more, since it would not have the
collective volume or buying power that National Longhouse has with its affiliates as a group.
The flyer is designed to be applicable to as many situations as possible. Its copyright attribution contains the disclaimer
"Not affiliated with any school district." which allows it to comply with most school district requirements for
Finally, using the flyer unifies your longhouse’s advertising message with other programs in the country. No matter which state
your program is located in, the message will be consistent. No conflicting advertising messages with other NS&D programs.
No confused readers. This produces clarity through consistency which is so important in building brand recognition with those
potential members your longhouse has yet to find.
Can it be customized to our local needs?
Yes, but only a portion of the flyer. Your longhouse will be provided with a flyer template containing a customizable text box
(7 ¼” x 2 ½”). Color logos, contact information, event dates, and such can then be added to the text box and sent directly
to the vendor for pre-press integration. Your customization will be printed with the same high quality ink used on the
remaining portions of the flyer. Your longhouse may change its customizable text box throughout the year for different events, however,
ordering minimum and aggregate maximum as specified below, still applies. If desired, the text box can be left blank, making it
useful for those situations where contact information or event dates change frequently. The information can then be added at a
later time by reprinting the text box area with an inkjet or laser printer.
What are the ordering details and restrictions?
Flyers are only available to local longhouses charted by, and affiliated to, National Longhouse, Ltd. They cannot be ordered
directly by tribes or the general membership. (However, tribes and individuals may redistribute those flyers once they receive the
distribution from their local longhouse).
Orders are limited to a minimum of 500 and a maximum total aggregate of 5,000 sheets per longhouse per program year. All longhouses must order directly from the vendor. Turnaround time
is approximately 3-7 days and orders will be shipped directly to the address provided by the longhouse.
Longhouses are responsible for designing their own customization of the text box and for providing the vendor with that design.
A flyer template with the customizable text box will be provided.
The vendor and National Longhouse will NOT allow customization in any other area of the flyer other than the text box! SO PLEASE DON’T ASK!
This includes adding or deleting pictures, graphics, text, white space, etc. You may however, submit suggestions to
National Longhouse for future revisions. National Longhouse will provide the vendor with a revised flyer on an annual or
need be basis.
