Fall Envelope Contest Winners

Thanks to everyone who entered our fall envelope contest! This one had the most entries of all so far, and we are excited to share the results with you! Because all of the entries were in the category of Calligraphy and Hand Lettering, we picked three to award. All three winners will receive an 8 piece Zig Calligraphy marker set of their choice.

Here are the winners:


This lovely envelope was created by Maxine Gaither of TN. We loved the design and all of the wonderful lettering. The matching stamps also complemented the design so well.  Maxine used the Zig Calligraphy markers to create the horizontal lines, the Zig Brushables on the background lettering, and the Zig Cocoiro for the address. Thanks for submitting an entry, Maxine!


Theresa Varela created this stunning envelope using Zig Calligraphy markers, and well as a Zig Brushable. We loved the lettering and eye-catching color. She, too, had a stamp that matched her fabulous design! Thanks for entering, Theresa!


This creative design was done by Hattie Bazemore of NC. We loved the idea of the Basket of Blessings, and her use of Zig Writers really brought the design to life. The blessings included are a wonderful reminder to be thankful of things we so often take for granted. Thanks for sharing, Hattie!

One last design we wanted to share was sent to us as a non-entry because we don’t carry some of the markers used to create it. However, it was so wonderful that we just had to share!


This was created by Julie Gray of NC. The creativity, superb letting and splendid use of color all speak for themselves. Thanks for sending it, Julie!

We hope you enjoy these ladies’ envelopes as much as we do!
