Twice Remembered Cottage 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway

The Twice Remembered Cottage is holding their 3rd Annual Cottage Charm giveaway, and I'm participating this year!



My giveaway is one set of 50 custom letterpress printed flat note cards with matching envelopes, printed in your choice of font, ink color, and style. If you're not familiar with letterpress, it's a process of printing that originated around 1450 with the invention of movable type. Today, I use antique printing presses and print each card individually to achieve a crisp impression in the paper that can be seen with the eye and felt with the hand.




To sign up to win the set of custom note cards, just leave me a comment on this post and let me know the name of your blog, if you have one. If you don't have a blog, just leave me a comment with your thoughts on letterpress printing.

For a second chance to win, mention my Cottage Charm giveaway in a post on your blog, and make sure to link back to this post and ALSO to the Cottage Charm giveaway post. Post a second comment back here once you've posted the link on your blog.

Good luck to everyone who enters!

The winner will be announced here on May 30. Update: Oops! I didn't put a closing time for the giveaway in the original post. So, let's say that all entries must be received by noon EST on May 30, and I'll announce the winner that evening. Thanks for all the entries so far!

And if you want to contribute something to the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway, find out how to be a hostess here.
