Have you ever wondered how to make boring information paper leaflets more interesting? Have you ever wanted to create an interesting seminar invitation card in order to catch an academician´s attention? Would you like to know how to solve the problem with sending of PF in case the librarians are too self-critical and lacking self-confidence to publish their group photo? We have tried to approach this challenge with help of short comic drawings made by the Stripgenerator application. Stripgenerator.com is a website where after registering, you can create not only strips (short comic strips mostly black and white) but also fully valued comics. There is nothing easier; for making such strips it is necessary to use your imagination only. The rest is just a matter of a good idea.
