Wolf & Ink Christmas card giveaway

I mentioned on Friday that I’ve been working with my sister recently for her wonderful Letterpress stationery company, Wolf & Ink.

I somehow completely forgot to mention that we’re running a giveaway, starting this week, to win a box of Christmas cards. And wouldn’t it be nice if one of my lovely readers here was one of the winners?!

Five people will win a box of hand printed Christmas cards, all designed and printed by Julia on Gertrude, her vintage Letterpress machine.

You can enter on any of the Wolf & Ink social media accounts (or all three, if you want to make three entries), by following the account, sharing the comp with someone else and letting us know which cards you’d like to win!

The deadline is midnight on Friday November 27th (aka Black Friday); we’ll select five winners at random the following Monday and ship your cards out poste haste so you’re ready to send them out in December…

If you fancy joining in (and, really, why wouldn’t you, ha ha?) then just head directly to the competition posts here:

5 lovely Letterpress Christmas cards

5 Letterpress Christmas cards | Wolves in London

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might remember that my sister set up her own Letterpress card business a year or so ago.

She’s super talented (and I don’t say that just because I’m her big sister) and her wedding invitations and cards are always beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that one of her Christmas cards was just featured in Elle Deco magazine. She’s going places that one…

Anyway, it got me thinking how nice it is to receive (and send) really special, unique, original, handmade cards. So I’ve done a little research and come up with five of my favourite Letterpress Christmas cards, and here they are, my lovely readers, just for you.

I’m a big fan of supporting independent makers, so this year I’m doing my best to avoid Amazon and to shop, instead with the likes of Etsy, Folksy, Not on the High Street, et al. And the cards are the perfect place to start, no?!

1. Penguins by Wolf & Ink

Of course, sis must have number one spot. She’s got a great selection of cards (and wedding invitations if you’re getting hitched and feeling classy!), but this amazing penguin tree is my personal favourite.

Available from Not on the High Street.

 2. Tree by SteelPetalPress

I love trees, you know that, right? I’d put a tree on every card if I could, so this Christmas one is hugely appealing.

 3. White Christmas card from dittodittoworks

I love this gorgeous reflection of a row of trees (oh goodness, I just realised the first three I’ve selected are all some form of tree!) with the stamped forms above and the green shadows below…

4. Happy Holidays by Artcadia

It doesn’t get more jolly than red stockings and snowflakes. I’m a sucker for the red-and-white Christmas colour combo (brings out the green of the tree, y’know) so this is close to my ideal card for the mantelpiece.

Available from Not on the High Street

5. Father Christmas by Rococo Rose

What’s that, you say? I’m ever predictable? Well, yes, I know, but I just can’t resist a good old vintage image at any time of year and at Christmas those old fashioned pictures just call to me even more strongly. This wonderful Father Christmas is from Rococo Rose made from a vintage engraving.
