Yes, we are planning to print this on a durable business card and make them available like the old Quick Tips cards. Also, we are planning to put it on an updated "WAI flyer". However, these won't be available for at least a few weeks.

In the meantime, we're going to provide a nice printable version (for A4 and letter-sized paper) that others can print. We expect to announce that in August.
