Remember how good it feels to write and receive letters.To make new friends at summer camp and stay pen pals through out the year? Nothing beats the feeling of finding a handwritten letter in the mailbox. To celebrate our new partnership with Egg Press and remind everyone how awesome it is to send and receive mail we decided to throw a fun little giveaway that revolves around one of our favorite things — snail mail! We’ve been sending letters back and forth all summer with Egg Press and it has been such a treat to find sweet packages alongside our bills and junk mail.
Here’s how it works! To enter to win simply comment on this blog post or Egg Press’s blog post about this contest and tell us your dream pen pal. It can be anyone, living or dead. Jack Kérouac, your Grandma, a Buddhist monk. For an additional entry, post a mail-themed photo on Instagram tagging us at @helloluckycards and @eggpress and using hashtag #LetterpressMailLove.
We’ll have three lucky winners for this giveaway, below is what they’ll receive.
Hello!Lucky and Egg Press will be your pen pal for a year. You’ll receive fun mail every other month which might include things like cards (big surprise, right?), recipes, chocolates, pens, seeds and more! There’s no obligation to write back, but we would love to get to know you better.
A years worth of cards from Egg Press and Hello!Lucky, 24 cards total!

Last week Refinery29 came by our new studio and took some photos of Eunice and Sabrina for a feature on San Francisco siblings. They were thrilled to be included along side some of the city’s coolest siblings. The piece includes a pretty fun q&a with Eunice and Sabrina about each other — including Eunice’s favorite memory of the two of them growing up. You can check out the full Refinery29 feature right here.
Thanks for including us Refinery29!
You have no idea how much we enjoyed reading your comments and suggestions for this card. You all are a witty, clever group of people. Thank you SO much for your feedback, it really helps us in this process when we are stuck on a design. In the end we settled on Are You For Real? And the final version is above. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t mock up a bunch of versions with your genius ideas before we settled on the final. Below are versions of the card with your words. They are all great, but we liked the silliness of Are You For Real? And thought the message could be interpreted more broadly.
We promised one lucky commenter a years worth of cards (totaling 12 letterpress cards). The winner of our caption contest is….. Tracy! Thanks for so many great suggestions Tracy, look out for an email from us so we can get your address and ship those cards to you.
Thanks to everyone else as well — that was fun!
We need your help! We’re in the process of designing some new cards and we can’t settle on a caption for this one. We’re planning to release it for Valentine’s Day so we’re looking for something with a sweet sentiment.
Ideas we had include: Are You for Real?, You Amaze Me, You Dazzle Me. Would you vote for one of those or do you have a brilliant suggestion that would pair perfectly with this design?
If we chose your words for the card we’ll send you a years worth of cards (12 total). If we don’t chose any new suggestions we’ll pick one winner at random who will win 12 letterpress cards from us.
So have at it and tell us what you think! We’ll pick a winner this Friday 7/19.
You all are amazing! Thanks for all the comments and kind words about our newest vintage circus cards. It was so much fun reading through your comments and we love hearing which designs you like best. We can’t wait to add these to the site and make them available to everyone.
The person who will be winning all five cards is…. Tasha!
We love doing giveaways so be sure to check here often and follow us on Facebook and Twitter! Thanks again for playing everyone.
We’re gearing up for the National Stationery Show in May which means our printer is busy at work cranking out all of our new letterpress card designs. We’ll be launching around 50 new cards this May and we haven’t been this excited for a new release in a long time. One of the things that makes this release so special is the fact that we’re now able to incorporate gold foil in our cards. We can’t wait for that sparkly release.
This year we also expanded some of our favorite existing lines. Expect to finally see more sock monkeys! Another line we’ve been itching to grow is our vintage circus series. You can see the first card hand drawn by Eunice here.
We’re adding 5 more cards to the circus series and you’re the very first to see all 5 of the new designs. One of the things that makes these cards so special is that each one is hand drawn by our founder and creative director Eunice Moyle. We had so much fun coming up with the ideas you see illustrated on these cards. And our printer did an amazing job letterpressing these beauties.
We hope they’re as well received in the rest of the world as they are in our studio.
Do you have a favorite? Leave a comment telling us which one and one lucky commenter will win all 5 – before anyone else can get their hands on them!
Look for these cards in stores and on our site in mid-May.
Winner picked and announced here!
We are so very excited to launch our new greeting card line and have loved sharing glimpses of what it looks like with you here on the blog, on Facebook and instagram. Well today one lucky commenter will receive one of our brand new cards, long before it’s available in stores or anywhere else!
To enter to win just leave a comment and tell us who you would send this ‘Thanks A Ton’ card to. We’ll pick a winner today and announce it here!
Update! We were so thrilled with the awesome response from you all that we picked 5 winners! Congratulations to Tasha, Tammy, Rebecca, Natasha, & Mary! You’ll be receiving emails from us shortly so be on the look out!
Have a great day and a relaxing weekend everyone!
One of the most fun things we do around the studio is brain storm ideas for new cards. We usually have a meeting, throw out all of our silly ideas, and then whittle the list down to something manageable since Eunice usually ends up designing the bulk of our greeting cards. One of the most lively conversations we tend to have is when we come up with card ideas that center around anthropomorphic food. The idea for a ‘Wokin’ Birthday’ card came from a dinner Eunice and Sabrina had at a Chinese restaurant.
As you can see Eunice is still in the midst of sketching but we had to share these shots of her sketch book from this morning. She said it’s not easy conveying veggies and pieces of tofu dancing so she tries to imagine Wil.i.am as a piece of tofu. These veggies definitely look like they are getting down so her method seems to be working. We can’t wait to see the final design for this hysterical birthday card and will be sure to show you as soon as it’s on press.
In the mean time have a Wokin’ Thursday!
