November 29th, 2010 · 29 Comments

This contest is now CLOSED!!! Congratulations to Liz, Brianna, and Amber who will be sending stylish holiday greetings to all of their friends and families!!!

Up For Grabs From Design des Troy

1 set of Happiest of Holidays cards and 1 set of Holiday Triangle Pattern cards (six cards in each set).

Samantha and Owen Troy met while studying graphic design at RISD. After the requisite courtship, an engagement and wedding followed, which is when Design des Troy was born. As they were planning their wedding, the couple decided to collaborate and design their own wedding invitations, and the next thing they knew, they were collaborating on other people’s wedding invites, album covers, and greeting cards! Samantha and Owen are based in San Francisco and also co-edit The Experts Agree.

Up For Grabs From Gold Teeth Brooklyn

Five Gold Teeth Brooklyn cards wrapped in bakers twine

Jesse and Emily are two Brooklynites who run Gold Teeth Brooklyn out of Jesse’s apartment. The design duo create quirky greeting cards and prints of illustrations that remind of how objects might look like through a child’s eye. Additionally, the pair have added a line of jewelry to their repertoire — brass and sterling silver necklaces cast from real objects like erasers, peanuts, and teeth! Be sure to visit Gold Teeth’s Etsy shop to check out all of the designs.
