So I've been making alternative collage valentines on and off since moving to London 5 years ago (wow, really? 5 years?)
After a few years of this I compiled my favourites into a mini-zine which I have been selling online and at various real life venues ever since. I also did a limited edition entirely pink version of this
to use up the excess ink in my broken printer, as something special for you guys.
I've made 7 new designs this week, but I want to step up this little corner of my 'practice' you know. As well as offering the originals for sale and making a second issue of the Love mini-zine, I want to print 100 Valentines cards to sell using some of the best designs from all 5 years, and sell them at a much cheaper price point (£1.70). I want to send these to print this Sunday in order to have a few weeks of optimal Valentines selling time,
but this is where I NEED YOUR HELP.
I'm not sure which designs are the best to print.
So I thought I'd ask for some help, and throw in a cheeky little competition to make it worth your while. I'll run this here and facebook too, to make it super easy.
WHAT YOU COULD WIN:
one randomly selected entrant will win: a copy of both old and new Love zines, and a printed Valentines card of their choice. And a two finger KitKat.
Two additional entrants will win their chosen printed Valentine card.
WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO:
In order to be in with a chance of winning, please tell me which designs (up to 6) you think I should print,
be sure to say which design you would want to be sent to you if you win.
you can do this in a comment on this blog post, or on the corresponding facebook photo album.
Deadline is Saturday 18th January
HERE ARE THE CARDS
I've narrowed it down to the 23 designs below - go click through them and see what you think
I advise you to make sure you read all of the words on the card before deciding you like it, because some of them have a bit of a kick in the tail. If that's the expression that makes sense.
