Unto all who may read this message, Greetings from Dorcas Gold Falcon. I hope this message finds you well
In the beginning of August, I announced a trial of accepting electronically colored submissions of devices in addition to those colored with Crayola markers. Brigida Saker has reported that in the months since that announcement, there have only been a couple of items that weren’t acceptable.
Since the trial has been a success, the Saker office will permanently accept electronically colored device and badge submissions. However, Saker still has the flexibility to return items that are difficult to read, mis-colored, don’t upload to OSCAR accurately, or have other problems caused by the fact that they came from a color printer or copier. Of course, Saker will continue to accept submissions that are hand colored, using Crayola “Classic” markers, or their equivalent. Saker will still NOT accept forms colored with crayons, colored pencil, or paint.
As a side note, the required number of copies of a badge or device form changed last fall. A complete submission must include 1 color and 1 uncolored line drawing copies, plus 1 copy of supporting documentation.
I hope this “technology upgrade” makes it easier to create your heraldic submissions.
Dorcas, Gold Falcon
