What is better than candy, more beautiful than a butterfly, and full of more love than you have ever known? No, I'm not talking about fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, I'm talking about Heaven! Heaven is much better than anything we have ever seen or known.
What is Heaven?
Heaven is a wonderful place that God has made for people who love Him.1 The Bible describes it as a place where everyone is always happy, a place with no tears or crying or pain.2 It is a very beautiful place, and those who have seen it use words like "glory" and "pure" and "gold" to describe it.3 It is a place where nobody will ever need to be hungry, or tired, or poor.4
That's great! How do I get there?
You can't get to Heaven in a car or bus, or even an airplane or spaceship. You can't buy a ticket to Heaven, and you can't sneak in when nobody is looking. There is only one way to get to Heaven, and Jesus is that way.5 Without Jesus, nobody can go to Heaven.6
Heaven is one of the two places God will put people after they die. The other place is called Hell, and is the worst place you could ever think of.7 How does God decide who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell? The Bible says that God has books where he keeps track of the things people do.8 Have you ever told a lie, even a tiny one? We all do bad things like lying or even worse. God calls these bad things "sin" and writes them down in His books.
The problem is, sin cannot be in Heaven where God is.9 Because we have all sinned, we are all on the road to Hell.10 But God loves us so much, and doesn't want anybody to go to Hell.11 That is why He sent His Son Jesus to take our place and die for our sins.12 Because of what Jesus did when He died on the cross and rose again, God will forgive the sins of people who turn to Jesus for help.
Will I be there?
Heaven is a great place, but do you know for sure that you will be there? The Bible makes it very clear that if we realize that we are sinners, turn to Jesus for help, and trust Him completely, we will be saved from our sins.13 At the moment you ask Jesus to save you, God will wash away your sins and write your name in His "book of life."14 You will be on your way to Heaven!
Some people won't make it to Heaven because they don't believe what God has said in the Bible.15 Others will miss Heaven because they think they can do enough good things to get there.16 Others will have to suffer an eternity in Hell because they won't turn to Jesus for help.17 Don't be like them! Believe God's Word. Admit to God that you are a sinner, and thank Him for sending Jesus to take away your sins by dying on the cross.
Trust Jesus as your Savior today, and you will have something much better than candy. Your sins will all be forgiven, your name will be written in the book of life, and you will be on your way to Heaven!

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.
How Do I Order Imprinted Tracts? When ordering a tract, select the "Add Imprinting" option and fill in the fields that appear. A live preview will be generated so you can see what your imprint will look like. Please note that due to differences in devices and browsers, your finished tracts may not look exactly like the preview. All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.
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. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before." All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you.
