Jesus is born!
"Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2:11) "When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy." (Matthew 2:10)
"Thou shalt call His Name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21) "God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) "Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross." (Hebrews 12:2)
Jesus is risen!
"Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead…. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy." (Matthew 28:5-8)
"While He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshipped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy." (Luke 24:51,52) "Rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father." (John 14:28) "God … set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion." (Ephesians 1:17-21)
Jesus is coming again!
"For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout … and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17) "In Thy presence is fulness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:11)
Jesus gives great joy!
Do you want to have this great joy? God's Word promises eternal joy in heaven if you, as a guilty sinner, put your faith and trust in Jesus as your Saviour. (Revelation 21:1-4; John 3:16) He also promises joy in this life for the believer who follows the Saviour, making Him Lord of his life. "These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." (John 15:11)
No joy without Jesus!
If you do not have Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, you cannot have true peace and joy, either in this life or in the life to come. When the Lord comes, you will be left behind and the door to heaven will be forever shut. (Matthew 25:10-13) Instead of great joy, you will experience "weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Luke 13:25-28) in hell "where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched." (Mark 9:43-48)
Trust Christ today as your Saviour, submit your life to His leading, and know great joy both now and forever.

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.
