Typewriter with text gratitude

It’s super simple, here are the rules:

1. Design a Thanksgiving Card made to fold to 5″ x 7″ designed to print four-color process front (and back if you like). It can be hip and funky or cool and edgy, funny or serious, classic or modern, seasonal or season-neutral. Copy is purely optional – include your own (card interior is black ink only) or leave it blank (or Greeked) and the Guru’s copywriter will be pleased to serve as the other half of your creative team once you’ve crushed a visual that screams gratitude.

2. Send the pdf file to by midnight Friday, September 19. Be sure to include all of your social media handles in your email. The sooner you send your entry, the sooner we can post it, with credit to you, on all of our social media pages to our audience of CEO’s, CMO’s and creative types like you!

3. By entering, you release the rights to your design to highresolution printing to print on limited edition cards that will be sent one time for Thanksgiving 2014. By entering, you warrant and represent that the rights to the content of your card are yours and are not copyrighted by any other person or entity. By entering you authorize us to use your name for purposes of crediting your particular genius.

4. Winning entries will be judged by a panel of marketing and advertising experts to be announced shortly. Winning entries will be announced by October 15, 2014.
