On the left side the phrase, "Help the big bird," is printed in a pale red with the words stacked one over the other starting with "Help" at the bottom and then an upside down and backwards "the" topped by "Big" and finally the word "bird" is again upside down and backwards and crosses over onto the right side changing the color pale red to a pale purple and white. On the right side, the phrase "fall in love," fills the space with "love" and "in" running vertically down the page and printed in white. Both words run into the word "fall" printed in purple at the bottom right side. Finally, in black text, small print running vertically against the white background and the red-lettered phrase is another phrase, "Somebody up there likes us."
