I have put together a pictorial that should help those that are new to "Feising" or FeisWeb understand how to prepare and use the dancer number cards.
Number cards can be printed directly from the website Feis entry page. When the number cards become available will vary from Feis to Feis. Normally they will be available the Wednesday evening before the Feis. There will be a Twitter announcement when they are available.
The dancers that pickup their cards at the registrar table is now a small minority. However, if you don't pre-print your card, the Feis has a full set of printed dancer cards for the Feis to distribute on Feis day.
This is how the number card looks printed in portrait mode.
Just cut the right side and bottom like this
This is how the number card should look when printed in landscape mode. If the number in the lower left hand corner is missing or on a second page, than you will have to reduce the margins. How that is done varies from browser to browser.
To make the card the correct size, just fold it in half and cut along the folded line.
When cut your dancer card should look like the picture above.
After the card is cut to size, fold it like this.
If you don't have a number holder, you can use a safety pin or a ribbon to attach the card to your dancer. To use a ribbon just puch two holes and thread a ribbon through the holes. Tie the ribbon around the dancer. Note: If you punch the holes down from the top a little bit, the card will be less likely to "flip up" during the competition.
