Are you in debt? According to the statistics, it’s likely that you are. Whether we view debt as a burden or as an investment in our future, most of us have experienced the crushing feeling of living under a burden of debt.
Let me share with you an amazing story about a man who owed more than most of us can imagine, yet had it all forgiven … down to the very last penny! His story is found in the Bible, where Jesus valued the debt at “ten thousand talents” (Matthew 18:24). Because one talent was equal to 6,000 days’ wages, the man would need to work six days a week for 192,000 years to repay what he owed. At today’s minimum wage, the debt calculates to roughly 3.5 BILLION dollars!
Who could ever repay such a debt? And what lender can afford to just forgive it? Jesus used this story to illustrate the greatest act of pardon we can ever encounter: the forgiveness of our sins. Because of our sinfulness, we owe God a debt that we simply cannot repay. Even if we work our hardest—doing good, praying, going to church—our debt far exceeds anything we can earn. The Bible summarizes our condition as: “dead in trespasses and sins … having no hope, and without God” (Ephesians 2:1,12).
Have you ever realized the enormous weight of the burden of sin that you carry? Thinking about our sin can cause many of the same emotions and responses as thinking about our debt—stress, anxiety, depression, frustration, fear, shame, denial, etc. But Jesus has good news for us! We can experience the same abundant forgiveness as the man in the story.
So, how can we be released from our debt of sin? Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth and lived a perfect, sinless life. He was therefore uniquely qualified to pay our sin debt, which He did on the cross: “Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18).
When we turn to God, putting our trust in the payment that Jesus has made through His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, God applies the full worth of His Son to our account. By trusting Jesus, we “receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith” (Acts 26:18).
Will you turn your sin debt over to God today? “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
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.

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."
