Publications

Not Putting on a Shirt collaborates with other organizations to provide printable resources that patients can use at their surgical consult or to spread the word in their local community, and that providers can use in their practice. You can also request brochures shipped for your practice, for leafleting, or for use at a public or private event.

We now have nine international translations of International FLAT Day’s “Flat is Beautiful” brochure available (also available on the IFD webpage) – Spanish, French, German, Arabic, Swahili, Russian, Chinese (simplified), Hindi, and Portuguese – thanks to a generous donation by Global Wordsmiths!

Technical Tip: if your publication doesn’t quite look right when you print it, try checking your print settings – uncheck “fit to page,” check the margins settings, etc.
