Meet our Spread the Joy Greeting Card competition entries

To celebrate the festive season, we offered one lucky customer the opportunity to design our Printed.com official 2019 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 also offered £500’s worth of Printed Points to gift to the winner’s chosen charity.

We received over 70 amazing entries so it was incredibly tough to choose to a winner, but after much deliberation, we eventually came to a decision- Kirsten from Fawn and Thistle and her fantastic Here Come Santa Claws Greeting Card Design.

Fawn and Thistle

Inspired by her love of all things punderful and furry, our winning design was created in aid of Happy Endings Rescue, Kirstens’ local charity that takes in neglected animals and rehomes them.

But, with so many great entries, we obviously aren’t going to just stop there. We also had four amazing runners up who all received £100s worth of Printed Points for their chosen charity

Let’s meet them.

Anna Candy Illustration

Another of our runners up, we absolutely fell in love with Amy Collins’ whale of a winter design created, fittingly, for the Marine Conservation Society.

And the runners up keep on rolling! Simple but striking, this charming wooded design by the lovely Wendy Malkin was made for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

Penny Dread

The last of our runners up, this cool, minimal design by Penny Dread was made for Re-engage, a charity committed to helping tackle loneliness some older people face, by giving them a lifeline of friendship and help, something even more important over the festive period.

And now, just a few of our other favourite entries!

Whoever said Christmas celebrations had to be limited to Earth? Inspired by the anniversary of the moon landing this year, Nicola’s galactic Greeting Card was designed for the Miscarriage Association.

What’s more festive, a Christmas tree or a gingerbread man? Why not have both at the same time? Well, this sweetly warm design by Becky Hampson certainly delivers. It was made for Home Start UK, a charity created to help families with young children through tough times.

 V&Me Paperie
