Laurel requires two color copies; Golden Dolphin requires one color and
one B+W *outline*. Atlantian forms being what they are you also need to
send two "name" sheets with your cover information, even if you aren't
submitting a name.

I always suggest that both the submitter and the local herald who handles
the submission keep at least the name sheet and a B+W outline, in order to
reproduce the stuff if needed (and sometimes it is; !@#% happens). So my

# What               Subm. Local Kingdom Laurel
- ----               --------------------------
4 name/cover sheets    1     1      1      1
3 B+W outlines         1     1      1      -
3 color copies         -     -      1      2

As for computer generated stuff: I have seen submisisons come in on
totally computer-generated forms that closely resemble the standard
Atlantian forms, and they are no problem at all. Anything straight from
the printer would, however, have to have the pertinent information on it
to be acceptable.

Anyone out there have electronic templates?
