Now onto the twelfth edition of our weekly feature: Lucky Fridays! Each Friday we’ll feature one of our letterpress cards. Then we’ll choose THREE LUCKY WINNERS to get a free card. Post a comment by 12 p.m. PST the following Thursday, and we’ll announce the winners on the following Friday!
The three winners from last week are (drum roll, please):
Melissa, Lisa and Mary!
Heather will contact you early next week to arrange sending your Wallowing Pig card.
Now for this week’s edition, one of our letterpress birthday cards!
Artist: Eunice Moyle
Inspiration: Owl tell you when you’re older.
Who to send it to: The whoo’s whoo on your birthday list—whoo’s on first? Someone wiser than thou, perhaps? Or someone with whoom you can share your wisdom.
Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: We had a designer who sketched out a “HAPPY H-OWL-OWEEN from Owllen Ginsberg” card, with a caricature of Allen Ginsberg as a great horned owl, reading from H-OWL. Ummm… yeah. No. We think she was buzzed on Sharpie fumes at the time.
Our favorite detail: The owl in back looks just a little bit mischievous.
Why Letterpress? With such fine-feathered detail, our pressmen get to show off how talon-ted they are!
Be sure to leave your comment, and don't forget to check back next week to see if you've won!
