Paperwink’s Custom Rubber Stamp Giveaway!

When L.A.-based stationers Tara and Darcey of  The Paperwink emailed me about their new rubber stamp line,  I took one quick look and was instantly smitten.  Their designs, stylized with vintage elements and a modern flair, are right up my alley. It doesn’t help either that the stamps have an old-school style wooden handle.  I WANT them all!!  Okay fine, I’d be happy with one, hehe.


These are a fun, eco-friendly, and cost-effective alternative to printed return addresses or mailing labels.  Just imagine saving time when you don’t want to write out your address on 150 thank you notes!  Forget about etiquette-schmetiquette, your sanity will thank you.  With beauties like these,  I’m sure your guests wouldn’t mind.


Now here’s your chance to win a Paperwink rubber stamp that you can use for your invites, thank-you notes, and ever-after.  Everyone is welcome to join, even if you’re outside the US!  To enter, please comment below and tell us which one is your favorite from their stamp collection.   While you’re there, don’t forget to check out Paperwink’s other fun goodies, like notecards, mailing labels, calling cards, and invitations.  You have until 11:59PM EST, March 4th to enter, and 1 lucky winner will be selected randomly.  Good luck!
