I was a little hesitant at first but this was actually super easy to create. I turned my welcome letter and info packet into a PDF, which I then uploaded into dropbox.

After triple checking from various devices, I printed on pink cardstock and stapled it outside my door.
I'm not sure how many parents have downloaded the welcome letter but it's a good strategy for those with smart devices!
