#ProudlyPrinted, Inspiration

#ProudlyPrinted – the #PrintedGoodwill Edition

To celebrate the festive season we offered one lucky customer the opportunity to design our Printed.com official 2018 seasonal Card, Envelope and Sticker. Not only will the winning design get into the hands of Printed.com customers and printing partners, but as this is the season of giving, we’re offered £1,000 worth of Printed.com points to gift to our winner’s chosen charity.

After receiving an abundance of entries, and much deliberation, we chose our winner – Clo’s Line, with her adorable ‘Where’s Jolly’ Greeting Card Design and LittleBird Weddings as our runner up. But, with so many great entries, we couldn’t stop there. So, we’ve rounded them all up right here for you! If you’re not already feeling festive, you will be after taking a leisurely scroll through these gorgeous designs!

It was created by Squaires in aid of Alzheimer’s Society.
