How to Customize EPA's HABs Infographic Files:
Instructions for Federal, State, Territorial, Tribal and Local

EPA's harmful algal blooms (HABs) infographic files—both a detailed version (easily printable on
14" x 8.5" paper) and an abbreviated "handout" version (easily printable on 11" x 8.5" paper)
can be downloaded from EPA's website. Federal, state, territorial, tribal and local partners may
customize the bottom of the infographics by adding local information such as a logo, website
address, email address and/or telephone number.
