Hand Missal Covers:

The missals above have covers as part of the document. You may elect to not print the first two sheets of the above documents because the 20lb standard paper does not provide a stiff cover that is very durable. Therefore, the following links are provided for two purposes. First, the files below may be printed on 65lb "cardstock" to provide a more durable cover. Consider using "cardstock" - especially if the missals are intended to be reusable parish missalettes. The cardstock will probably require feeding through the "manual" printer feed, one time for each side. Second, they are in .odt format so that they may be edited with any word processor and altered to suit your application. The last one is an example of what can be done with color images.
