Hello all you lucky folks out there! This is the 61st edition of our Lucky Friday Giveaway.  Each Friday we feature one of our letterpress greeting cards. 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): Morgan, Ellie and Sarah! We’ll contact you next week to arrange sending your Dad, You Rock card.

Design: Champ
Artist: Eunice Moyle
Inspiration: We’re continually inspired by the feats of style and deeds of design-derring-do we see here at Hello!Lucky every day.
Who to send it to: A grad with mad skills, a daring doctoral darling with a fully fledged dissertation, or anyone harder, better, faster, stronger.
Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: The Daft Punk draft didn’t quite come across on paper, sans laser show and strobes.
Favorite detail: We’re feelin’ the satisfied expression on the strongman.
Why letterpress? Such typographical strength demands a bold and beautiful printing method.

Don’t forget to post your comment and tune in next week, same time, different stationery, to see if you’ve won!

Now for this week’s edition:

Design: Wallowing Pig

Artist: Eunice Moyle

Inspiration: When it comes to making cute, punny cards about pigs, the sty’s the limit!

Who to send it to: Someone who’s happy as a hog in humus, and who’s out there bringin’ home the bacon!

Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: Once we penned this little piggy, we felt the other ideas were a little too hammy, salty, or boorish.

Our favorite detail:  Love the slightly sloppy pink watercolor effect on the pig, and the concentric swirls of swill in his swine sty.

Why Letterpress? Flat printing would be such a boar.

Don’t forget to post your comment and tune in next week to see if you’ve won!
