Blonde Designs — Giveaway-A-Day 11/28

November 28, 2006


Find the winner for yesterday’s Giveaway at the bottom of this post.
____________

Up for grabs today is a custom and high-style and super-special prize. The winner of today’s Giveaway will receive A SET OF 25 CUSTOM NOTECARDS — WINNERS CHOICE — FROM BLONDE DESIGNS!!!



These notecards are terrific. Fab design after fab design — and each with colorful coordinating envelopes. Angie Gubler and Kristin Rees, both former art directors at Martha Stewart Magazines, teamed up in 2002 and made a little stationery magic in Brooklyn when they founded Blonde Designs. Featuring the beautiful typography, clean design and soothing colors you’d expect from Martha-kind-of-gals, the designs are totally now and chic.

Blonde Designs offers custom, custom, custom. In quantities as little as 25 you can have totally custom stationery at your fingertips. Can I stress how lovely it is to have a box of stationery featuring your very own name? Or maybe your child’s name — for notes to Grandpa? So much cooler than the box of generic thank you cards you picked up at the grocery store.

In addition to chic notecards, take a look at some of my other Blonde favorites:



Super-cute bookplates that coordinate with their other stationery offerings.




Too sweet for words baby announcements.


Clever and friendly party invitations.


Clean and subtle and designy holiday cards.

I have seen a set of their fab custom notecards in person and they are absolutely smile-bringing. You want these, so comment already!

Thank you, Blonde Designs
