When the folks from Two Paperdolls contacted us a couple of months ago about doing a giveaway (like they’d recently done on one of our favorite wedding sites) we knew it would be the perfect Wedding Week prize for you guys. Two Paperdolls – who are on the brink of launching a new e-commerce website with a whole new look – along with their sister site Louella Press are dishing out over $1000 worth of custom letterpress wedding (or party!) invitations. Amazing, eh? So all of you brides-to-be (or anyone else who just wants to throw a party) can cross one thing off of your to-do list.
If you don’t currently fall into the “engaged” category, go tell your nearest wife-to-be, mother-of-the-bride, or anyone else who is ready to give a killer engagement present about this fab little freebie. Or you yourself can use the prize for any other event or announcement that you’ve got around the corner (birthday party? baby shower? anniversary party? just-won-amazing-free-invitations party?). Louella Press designs gorgeous classic-yet-fresh invitation sets that are pretty much guaranteed to make an incredible first impression to any guest who is lucky enough to receive ‘em.
We’ve chosen a few of our favorites here, but be sure to click over to Louella’s site to browse the full collection. Just note that these images show engraved invitations (raised ink) but the winner will be receiving equally-beautiful letterpress invite sets (which each include an invitation, envelope, rsvp card, and rsvp envelope). And if your event or announcement doesn’t need the RSVP card and envelope, feel free to convert it to a thank you card and envelope instead. Oh, and you’ll all be receiving an exclusive YHL discount on Thursday so stay tuned…
Here are this week’s full details:
- PRIZE: 50 single-color letterpress invitation sets (including 50 invitations, envelopes, rsvp cards, and rsvp envelopes) on your choice of either fluorescent white or pearl 110 pound paper, courtesy of Two Paperdolls and Louella Press
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “INVITE ME!” and…
- BONUS QUESTION: … since we’re talking invitations and guest lists, tell us whether you prefer a large family-and-friend-filled wedding or a smaller more intimate event- or maybe even a destination wedding with just a handful of lucky travel companions.
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Our anniversary! (Wednesday, July 7th at 8pm EST)
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
- PRIZE SHIPS: To the United States of America
- USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!
Thanks for getting into the Father’s Day spirit with us a bit early this week in honor of our big Dad Day giveaway from Lowe’s. It sounds like you all have some wonderful dads in your lives, and Sherry and I will join the chorus by saying Happy Father’s Day to Ken, Tom, Jack, Harry, Emanuel, Theodore and Carmen (our various fathers and grandfathers) for the plethora of skills and values that they passed down along the way.
And we should also extend that “Happy Father’s Day” message to the dad who will be enjoying this week’s pair of prizes courtesy of Lowe’s: the Char-Broil Urban Grill and the Fiskars Momentum Reel Mower. But even if you’re not the big winner this week, Lowe’s can still help you score some last-minute gifts (they’ve even conveniently organized them by price on their web site).
But enough chatter. Let’s get to the big winner. After we wooed random.org with a terribly tacky tie (in the spirit of Father’s Day) it spit out the name of this week’s lucky lady… Jannell (who in some psychic twist predicted that she’d celebrate her father this weekend by giving him a grill and reel mower). Congrats! We hope your dad enjoys his extra special day – along with all of the other poppas that everyone has mentioned.
So go celebrate, honor, and remember your fathers and grandfathers this weekend. And remember to swing back through here on Monday for an awesomely artful giveaway…
