Hi fishermanrob,

Yes, that will work as the Swiss Half Fare Card is valid for one month (until August 8 in your case). You can print the Swiss Half Fare Card at home via www.swisstravelsystem. or en (slightly cheaper at the moment). It takes 1-3 working days to receive it through e-mail.

You will need a half fare card for each traveler.

Yes indeed, one card for each adult. The mentioned websites will ask for the number of travelers so you can't go wrong there.
