A traveler was walking along the road. He had a scythe upon his shoulder and an hourglass in his hand. He walked with measured, exact footsteps. His eyes looked straight in front, and they never moved either to the right or left, but gazed on what was beyond. I said to him,
"What is your name?"
"My name is Time."
"Where are you going?"
"I am going to eternity."
"What is the number of your years?"
He showed me an open book, and on the page just turned over was written the date of the year just begun.
Where he went I followed, but even as I went I felt I could not tell how long I should follow. I saw one person after another stop in the road, and lie down to rise no more. They were left behind, for Time paused not; his course was unstopped.
Yes, my reader, you are walking with Time on the road of life in a new year begun. But you may not go far; you may pass the buds of Spring, but never see the flowers of Summer. Or, you may watch the leaves fall from the Autumn trees, and lie beneath them in the Winter. But whether your days on earth are to be few or many, are you ready for eternity?
You may have begun this year with gray hair and other signs of old age, or you may be facing the future with youthful buoyancy. But whether you are old or young, God would have you number your days, and apply your heart to wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
To begin the year with God is more important than anything else in this world. The Bible says: "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon" (Isaiah 55:6,7).
The dawning of a new year serves to remind us that we are all marching through time, heading for eternity. Awaiting each traveler is either a glad and glorious heaven in the presence of God, or a sad and sorrowful hell, banished from God. The eternal Son of God entered into time as the man Christ Jesus to make a way for sinful man to approach God and enter into life eternal. His death, burial and resurrection have fully accomplished this objective so that Jesus now proclaims, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me" (John 14:6).
To personally "seek the Lord" is to realize that Christ died for your sins, and to trust His shed blood as the full and powerful payment needed to wash your sins away. "The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). On the basis of Christ's atoning sacrifice, God abundantly pardons the repentant sinner and makes him a child of God forever. "Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God" (1 Peter 3:18). See also Romans 5:10; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 3:1,2.
But you must seek Him now, "while He may be found," while there is still time, before you pass into eternity. In view of the uncertainty of life, how important it is to "Prepare to meet thy God" (Amos 4:12), through faith in Christ as your personal Saviour! This alone will enable you to experience a truly "Happy New Year"—and look forward to a glorious eternity with absolute certainty.
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.

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.
