Perhaps the most replicated component of the NCVRW Resource
Guide is the camera-ready artwork. The artwork can be utilized in many
ways during NCVRW and throughout the year. Various pieces can be used
as stand alone documents or incorporated into publications
such as brochures, annual reports, and fact sheets. They can also be copied
onto overhead transparencies for use in training programs.
The 2001 Resource Guide camera-ready artwork reflects
the theme of NCVRW, along with other salient issues relevant to crime
and victimization. When appropriate, the artwork can be personalized with
local victim service providers' contact information. Local printers and/or
correctional agencies may be willing to donate printing services and/or
paper, or provide these services at a reduced cost.
The ten categories of artwork include:
Public Awareness Poster, Buttons, Bookmarks, Logos, Bumper
Sticker, NCVRW Letterhead, Cover/Title Page, Certificate of Appreciation,
Crime Victim Resources Brochure & National Toll-free Information and
Referral Telephone Numbers
- An 11 x 17 inch poster, presenting the NCVRW theme,
is included in the Resource Guide. The poster can be enlarged and/or
reduced for use in newsletters, brochures, and even as billboards. Victim
service providers should insert their organizations contact information
prior to duplicating the poster artwork.
- The artwork for buttons can be printed in one or more
colors to add dimension to the message.
- Each of the bookmarks should be printed on two sides,
and print best on paper that is at least 80 pound stock.
- Sample letterhead and logos can be used to encourage
coalitions and/or NCVRW planning committees to show a united effort
under one banner: 2001 National Crime Victims Rights Week. Victim
service providers may wish to incorporate a listing of NCVRW Planning
Committee members onto the letterhead prior to reproducing it.
- Logos can be used on brochures, programs, invitations,
centerpieces, etc. Also, color can be easily incorporated to add more
depth to the designs.
- A bumper sticker is included for reproduction and distribution
to local constituencies.
- Also included is a cover or title page for your Victims'
Rights Week material. Space has been left so you can incorporate the
logo or name of your agency/organization.
- A certificate of appreciation is included in the Resource
Guide, honoring victim service providers and others for their contributions
to victim assistance. The certificate can be reproduced on attractive
card stock, with the recipient's name written in calligraphy. Spaces
are provided for the date of the award and the signature of the Director
of the organization giving the award. You may also wish to modify the
certificate to honor volunteers who assist crime victims and advocates,
tying the event into National Volunteer Week, which will also be commemorated
during the week of April 22-28, 2001.
- The list of national toll-free information and referral
telephone numbers can be reprinted as a stand alone document
or incorporated into other victim service organizations' publications.
This list can also be utilized for training and technical assistance,
especially for criminal and juvenile justice and allied professionals
who are in need of good referral programs for the victims with whom
they have contact.
- A crime victim resources brochure is provided as a
double-sided, camera-ready, tri-fold brochure. It includes basic information
about victims' rights and services nationwide, as well as a listing
of national referral numbers. Space is provided for local contact information.
