Next Day Flyers Giveaway

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this giveaway! The winner is Shannon from Peace Love & Poop, and she's going to put the postcards to very good use:
I am on the Committee to bring a Dream Park to my city and we need all the help with promotion we can get! This would be one less thing we need to spend money on!
Congratulations, Shannon, and good luck with your fundraising!

With summer officially over I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and getting started with the seasonal baking. I seriously love this time of year because there are plenty of excuses to make yummy stuff. I have my standard recipes I always whip up, but I also like to throw in a few new ones to try. These are usually recipes I find in books or online that I scribble on sheets of scrap paper, and they often have a way of migrating to random places in my kitchen. I really should be more organized and have my recipes on cards or something.

I was thinking about this the other day when, low and behold, a representative from Next Day Flyers contacted me about hosting a giveaway for a set of 100 4x6 standard postcards. Now, postcard printing isn't something I know a great deal about, but these would be great for keeping track of recipes! Of course, you can also use them to send notes via snail mail, as postcards are cheaper to send than letters.

These are quality postcards, too. Made from thick 14 pt card stock, the front of the postcards will be printed in full color and the back will be in black and white. Winner can choose either a UV or matte coating. But here's the best bit! These postcards are customized with either a print-ready file that the winner can upload, or the winner can use the company's Online Design Center to create their card layout. The Online Design Center allows for uploading photos, adding text, and other design elements, and there are helpful video tutorials that show you how to use it on the NextDayFlyers YouTube channel. So many possibilities! If you're one to give out homemade baking mixes as gifts for the holidays, these cards would make ideal gift/recipe tags.

To enter the giveaway, first take a look at the website, and then let me know how you'd use the postcards if you win. I'm sure there are more creative ways to use postcards than the few I mentioned above. This is the mandatory entry and must be done in order for the bonus entries to count, but I've set up a handy Rafflecopter widget to make this as easy as possible.

Once you've completed the mandatory entry above, then feel free to do any or all of the bonus entries below.
