A few days ago, I woke up to find out I’d somehow hit 3000 followers on my IG account. WHAT?!
Three thousand may not seem like a lot compared to accounts that have tens or even hundreds of thousands of followers, but this is after all a very random personal account of nobody famous. So to me, knowing that my photos are interesting (or at least not visually traumatising) to three thousand of you peeps out there is kind of amazing and humbling. Thank you guys so much.
If I could hug every one of you, I would. But that’s creepy, so I’m gonna do a…
If you haven’t already seen this on Instagram, here’s how to enter:
1. Follow me on Instagram
2. Take a photo that celebrates the beauty of snail mail (Maybe a handwritten note? Or an old postcard perhaps?)
3. Post the photo to your Instagram, and tag it with #ptpsnailmail and @paper_tigress
The winner gets to pick their initial from between two beautiful styles of letterpress alphabets. First up, Kensington is a flourished drop-cap monogram based on the intricate illuminated letters you’d see in antique books and royal manuscripts.
Kensington notecards come letterpress printed in a matte gold, and are paired with antique gold envelopes to match. Just gorgeous, if you ask me.
But if you prefer a more minimalist approach, we’ve got you covered too. College is a chic sans-serif monogram that’s all clean lines and white space, with a thin circle around your initial give it the look of a cool personal logo.
College notecards come letterpress printed in a medium grey, and are paired with matte grey envelopes to match.
Contest closes on Friday August 22nd, and the winner will be chosen and announced on Saturday August 23rd. This giveaway is open internationally, and you can enter as many times as you want. Please be sure to take your account off private to participate, or else the photos won’t show up on the hashtag page.
Good luck my dears!
