Our hearts reach out to you with sympathy for your recent loss. We know how difficult this time can be, and want to assure you that you are not alone. God has allowed a loved one to be taken from you, but God has not left you. The Bible reminds us that God is the “God of all comfort” who sustains us through these difficult times so we can bring His comfort to others who are hurting (2 Corinthians 1:2-4).
God Knows Your Pain
Because God created us, He knows intimately the depth of sorrow which the human heart can feel. Jesus, the Son of God, experienced this sorrow for Himself when His dear friend Lazarus died. The Bible records His heart-felt reaction in the Bible’s shortest verse: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). God knows your pain.
Now try to picture Jesus, a perfectly innocent young Man, suffering and dying on the shameful cross. Because of that dreadful day, we can be assured that God knows—really knows—the sorrow of seeing a loved one suffer, the tragedy of an “untimely” passing, and the painful separation brought about by death.
God Loves You
During a time of loss, some people begin to wonder if God really cares. Oh, dear reader, let us assure you that God not only cares about you; He loves you tremendously! Consider the reason why God allowed His precious Son to go to Calvary’s cross: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
The Bible teaches that sin is the underlying cause of death. Beginning with Adam, the very first man, we have all sinned; we have all gone against God’s holy standard and fallen short of His glory (Romans 3:23; 5:12). The result of sin is death (Romans 6:23). This is where God stepped in and demonstrated His boundless love by sending Jesus Christ, who willingly laid down His life to gain the ultimate victory over sin and death (Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:57).
God Wants You to Turn to Him
It is our prayer that God will use this time to draw you closer to Him. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, we encourage you to look to Him for strength and comfort. Seek out fellowship with other believers who can show you God’s love.
If you have not trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, we plead with you today to look in faith to the One who died for you and rose again. Turn to Him, repent of your sins, and place your faith in Jesus Christ. Then, when your time comes to leave this world, you will go to be with God forever in Heaven where sickness, sorrow, and death shall never enter.
We send you these words in love, hoping they will bring comfort to your soul as you come to the full assurance of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. Take Him as your Saviour today.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24).
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.

Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others.
