100 Postcards Giveaway!


Since the birth of our new baby, my mind has been in a million different places! Baby Seth is going to be four weeks tomorrow and I’m now slowly getting adjusted to having a newborn again.

One of the things that has been on the back burner for me are  thank you cards. I’m quite behind on sending thank you cards (advanced thanks to those that gave us such wonderful gifts and well wishes – cards will be arriving in your mailbox sometime this year). So I thought, why not combine our thank you card and the birth announcement into a postcard.


The picture above is the birth announcement that I designed for Jude (our eldest) who just turned two this past January.  I can’t believe how time flies!

I’ve been thinking about designing a cute birth announcement postcard for Baby Seth…  So it was exciting when UPrinting offered me some postcards and also offered to sponsor a “100 Postcard Giveaway”!

    I want them!

  • Weyrdkat

    Wow! This giveaway comes at the perfect moment as I’m searching for a way to save money on Save the Date cards for my upcoming wedding. I bet they could be done up do cute! Thanks for the inspirations!

  • dina

    Awesome I’d love some postcards. I used postcards as Christmas cards one year and they were VERY well received. Trying to think of what I can use them for soon, maybe just a “HELLO just because” being that some friends we only “communicate” with once a year via Christmas card

  • Awesome

    Hmm, the possibilities are endless!
    I work at a school right now, so there are endless projects and business opportunities I could use them for…
    Or I could be selfish and use them for my upcoming spring week party…
    Or I could finally get around to sending out those thank you cards from New Year’s (it’s been a busy year)!

    Oh please pick me!
    By the time I finish sending this comment, I am sure I will think of three more uses!
    Ha ha!

    Wow! These postcards really would come in handy for my son and future daughter-in-law as they announce their new address after their wedding, or possibly thank you cards. With so many other things they are spending their money on, it would be great for them to receive this for a gift!

  • Shellybean_200

    What would I do with 100 postcards? I would be able to keep my daughter’s great grandma happy with lots of updates! I would also be able to keep in touch with my nephew who is in the USMC overseas!

  • Cindy

    I would use the 100 postcards to give to announce my son’s engagement and save the date for their wedding!! That would be awesome!

  • Helen

    I would make thank you cards for my 2 year old to use.

  • i would use the postcards to help my sister with her Save the Date mailers, invites for my baby’s first birthday, and put postage on them and put them in PostSecret books so others can send in their secrets!

  • Stockannette

    Oooo, postcards – I’m in heaven! I’d use them as thank you notes to include with my Etsy orders, and maybe just to send a smiling bee to the mailboxes of a few special people!

  • What a great giveaway! I would love to use postcards at an upcoming spring craft market 🙂

    we have neighbors in their 90’s who are not only alive and kicking, but AWESOME!! they head south each winter to avoid the cold, cold weather here in Utah. my two children love these neighbors like grandparents, so all winter long, we communicate via postcards! my children love sending/receiving postcards and it’s a favorite with our neighbors too! I love the connection they have with my children who are generations apart! so…these postcards would totally be put to good use!
