Cue Card 14 1/2" x 23"

CODE: ex-006

The original use of a cue card was to tell people on television what to say without it being completely obvious to the television audience that they were being prompted. (On radio, it made no difference if you had a script in front of you as long as you could consult it without being obvious. The description "cue card" has spread to many other situations to describe a portable written reminder of information. A lot of cue-cards these days are tear-out pages printed on thick card stock and found in reference books, or pre-laminated cards sold to give you the highlights of some procedure.
