linda: Should I make the whole thing in Photoshop as a JPEG or create it in MS Word?
Since you know he'll be printing them off on letter size paper, you could create the entire thing in Photoshop (I'm assuming you don't have a page layout program) as a letter size page. Save it as a .tif (or a high quality .jpg).

Then you can place the file in Word (oh gag...'-}})--I'm not sure how Word handles image files as to whether when you place them, they are sized correctly (letter-size in this case) and if not, then I would think that you could resize as needed...that's the way I have to do it in WordPerfect.

That way you don't need to worry about fonts and stuff...

A PDF would be the easiest approach (assuming he has Reader). I'd be happy to create the pdf file for you if you'd like--email me the Photoshop file (.tif, .psd or .jpg) and I'll do the pdf and email it to you...
