Congratulations to the winners of the 2012 Graceful Envelope Contest, and sincere
thanks to everyone who entered. The theme, D-liver D-letter D-sooner D-better,
encouraged calligraphers to create a Graceful Envelope around anything beginning
with the letter D and address it artistically. Judges looked for skill in lettering,
effective use of color and design, and creative interpretation of the theme. Designs
that incorporated postage stamp(s) into the theme were encouraged.
The Graceful Envelope Contest is conducted by the Washington (DC) Calligraphers Guild and the National Association of Letter Carriers. The winning envelopes will
be exhibited at the NALC building in Washington, DC and are posted on Flickr.
