When this opportunity popped up, I sat back and wondered what the hell I would do with 250 greeting cards. I have a history of being really bad at the greeting card thing. I think that the last time I gave out anything like holiday cards was back in elementary school, and they were those cheap, perforated ones that came in sheets.
Was I the right person for this giveaway?
And then it hit me. These greeting cards could be used for just about anything. I could use them for invites to an event, like an art opening or a flash mob or something. I'm not likely to organize a flash mob, but you might want to, and why not add a formal touch to the whole affair? Or, I could create a bunch of thank you cards specifically targeted to people in the service industry. Instead of just throwing cash on the table as a tip, I could stick it in one of those thank you cards with a note about good they are at their job. I used to serve specialty coffees, and something like that would have made my entire week sometimes. Or, you could join the hope revolution and use these cards to spread some goodness around.
Me? I have a top secret mission planned for my cards, and I'm keeping mum about it. If my super top secret mission pans out, I just might move ahead and order more custom postcards. I'll let you know if my mission yields fruit.
The 250 greeting cards are 7" x 5" half-fold with a matte or gloss coated 10 pt cover. They will be printed with a full color outside and a blank inside. The only part of this giveaway that isn't free is the shipping, which must be paid by the winner, and shipping is only available within the United States. Sorry my Canadian fellows.
