    How come the different background color? The print shop was having trouble with it laser color printer when we asked for additional 8"x11" Cards. The greenish ones are the second printing. So the plan was to have the remaining "tan" Cards serviced with just Oshkosh and the greenish Cards serviced as duals. However, the USPS canceled all of them as duals, so a third printing, with close to the original tan background color, was serviced.
