graceful envelope

This was Best in Show last year.
Below is the post with details about how to enter. I've had 8-10 envelopes accepted over the years. I probably don'thave time to enter this year. But, I like to remind others to enter. The link below is also a great place to troll for ideas.

Ssssssssss.. . that's the sound of time slipping away as the deadline
approaches for your entries in the 2014 Graceful Envelope Contest.

This year's theme -- The Superlative Letter "S" -- allows you to show your
style and spirit by symbolizing some sentiment starting with S. So set
aside some time, since all envelopes must be postmarked by March 24, 2014.

Winners will be chosen based on artistic hand lettering, creative
interpretation of the theme and effective use of color and design,
including incorporation of postage stamp(s). There is no entry fee.

For rules and galleries of winning envelopes from past years, visit

The Graceful Envelope Contest is conducted by the Washington (DC)
Calligraphers Guild and the National Association of Letter Carriers. The
contest is open to all ages, with separate categories for children.
