i definately agree with you diana! marketing and advertising is vital to promote anything! and it works! that's how I would use my postcards!

Carla Burke said...

Dear Diana,
How would I use my 250 postcards? Well, I would send a postcard to 250 friends, relatives, neighbors, schools and librarians that our next book is coming out with the release date, and that it is not to be missed.

Hi Diana, Love your blog! I would use the 250 postcards to keep in touch with my family. I am the only one left in Missouri - everyone else has moved to California, Massachusetts, Maine, Texas and Washington. So I haven't seen any of my family in years. Anyway, thanks for the contest! Nina

Teri C said...

You are always doing such fun and generous stuff Diana.

I honestly don't know what I would do with that many postcards but it would sure keep me in touch with family and friends.

Diana, could you email me please. I am having a problem ordering your book and I want to get it from you. Thanks

Indigene said...

Diana, what a great thing to do! I'm not surprised, you're always creating in some way, shape or form!
I would use my 250 cards to send a thank you to everyone who has uttered any word of kindness to me. I would create a special piece of work for that postcard to show my gratitude.

Good luck and blessings to all who enter!

Sharon said...

Wow, I am impressed. I was actually in bed seeing that it is 12:08 AM. But an angel awakened me and said: "Lo! wake up you sleepy head! There's a postcard giveaway at Diana's. Better leave you silly comment so she can choose you." ...and I awakened and dragged my big behind to the corner chair where I typed this eloquent message and I declare: "Yes I want 250 postcards to promote my work" Then a voice said. You don't have many friends. You just need five." and my heart sulked...Bwah hu hu hu?


What a generous giveaway Diana....I suppose I would use my postcards as a thank you for those who purchased my art and to also promote my workshops :)

Lisa M Griffin said...

Good Morning. You are amazing... always on the "creative ball". I haven't heard of this printer and will certainly check them out. In the past, depending on the project and quantity I would either use a local printer or Vistaprint. But you are right about marketing and I REALLY need to finish up my spring promo and get that out. Thanks for sharing.

Fannie said...

hi, diana. your postcard is fantastic! how would i use 250 postcards . . . hmmm, i would probably create an image that would symbolize possibilities and potential and add inspiring text with words of gratitude. On the front, i would include a collage of thumbnail images of my newest items in my shop--my boutique handbags, totes and clutches. I would also include them in my sales packages, project submissions, and add them in my holiday mailing.

Thanks for your generosity and continued inspiration. You make blogging fun.


Melissa and Emmitt said...

:) melissa

Carli said...

I would send my postcards to publishers, editors, and art directors. I would also take some to conferences for promotional pieces. what a great giveaway Diana

Chickengirl said...

Oh everyone loves a giveaway!!!!!

I'll probably make a card where I can cross promote for licensing and children's illustration. I'm also moving in a few months, so maybe I can also use it as a change of address card!

And thank you for your kind words and wishes on my blog..I appreciate you always stopping by.

Candace Trew Camling said...

I would use them to do my summer promotional mailer! I just finished my spring one, but I am already thinking about it!

secret cake said...

The postcards are great! I would send one or two with each shipment, and keep them in my purse to hand out to everyone I come into contact with : )

Such a great giveaway; thanks for hosting!

Dot said...

I would send them all out to promote my work, OR, I would give the whole deal to my friend who is a wonderful photographer and recently lost his job, to promote HIS work!

marianne said...

Wow 250! That is a lot!
I know a few people but maybe I would dare to send them to companies as well and try to sell the idea I had years agao.
They are also nice to send around inviting them for a workshop.....

Lynn said...

How generous of you Diana, and a great idea for a giveaway :)

I would use the postcards to help promote my two Etsy shops.

mim said...

Hi Diana!

I would use these postcards to keep in touch with friends and family! What a great idea for sending a quick note to let someone know you're thinking about them!

Glen (GARsticksandstring) said...

this is Garsticksandstring. I thought I would do any entry for our group blog. We are a group of etsy teens forming a group uniting and I am the moderator for the group! We would use the post cards to help spread the word that teens can make a change and a difference and we arn't just kids that can't do anything! Hopefully we can change the owrld and do us justice!

paru's_circle said...

Amanda Litz said...

Hi Diana,
Thank you for this opportunity to win the postcards. I would use the post cards in my school presentation as a way to promote my new book series The Traveler's Trunk. I would give a postcard to each kid and have them write a note to a friend they think would enjoy the book describing their favorite scene. Then suggest they deliver the postcard by hand or through the mail.
Best Wishes,
Amanda Litz
