I've decided to run a little contest to promote my new CafePress store because, well, the only person who's bought anything so far is my mom. So I need to promote the thing.
Besides, who doesn't love a good contest? (Hopefully, this is a good one.)
Prize: 10 notecards from the shop, your choice of image.
How to Enter: Leave a comment to this post. Suggestions on how to promote the store would be appreciated. If you think that they'd sell better if I printed them out myself and sold them as sets with assorted images on etsy, say so (keep in mind that they'd be more expensive, then). If you want me to put an image on a different item so you can buy that, let me know. If these pictures aren't your thing, but you'd buy notecards with artistic photos of yarn, let me know.
To get 2 entries, mention my little store and contest on your blog and leave a comment to this post letting me know you did it.
You can get 3 entries by buying something from the store and leaving me a comment to this post letting me know about it.
Be sure to leave me your e-mail address (formatted like: jenumlas at gmail dot com to stave off the internet evildoers) so I can contact the winner. I'll have His Awesomeness pick a name from a hat, bowl or other suitable vessel. Possibly while blindfolded.
Deadline: Noon, EST on Saturday, January 26. Winner will be selected on Sunday, January 27 and announced once I've contacted the winner so they can select their prize.
What's so great about notecards and postcards? Well, they're less expensive and more original than greeting cards with pre-printed messages. I haven't bought a birthday card in years. I just go to my collection of blank cards whenever I need to send one. They're pretty, they're unique, you can hang them on the wall to look at, or give them away and send them out into the world. They make it easy to send Thank You notes, or a quick hello to a friend who could stand to get something in the mail that isn't a bill. A set of them makes a good gift. (The Holidays are past, but end of school year teacher gifts are coming up sooner than you think. And if you're anything like me, people's birthdays are always sneaking up on you.)
So, let's get commenting and spreading the word and stuff!
