deanpennandpaper Giveaway - You'll Simply Love Bill!

deanpennandpaper is an absolutely fabulous Etsy Shop, blog sponsor, and giveaway host!


Bill is simply wonderful and here's why:


1) Communication is a gift for Bill - he's such a joy to work with.

2) His product is simply lovely, high quality and well designed.

3) He gives 10% of his profits from deanpennandpaper to St. Jude's.

4) He is giving away $25 to his shop, enough for you to select a set of personalized note-cards & matching labels!! (Ok, so they don't have to be personalized, but I go crazy for stuff like that, so mine would probably be personalized...)

Get to know a little bit more about Bill and then enter to win some of his work...

Subtle yet beautiful - love this one Bill!

How did you discover your knack for Graphic Design?
"I basically just fell into graphic design. I'm a teacher by education....to save on our wedding budget, my wife and I, started creating our own wedding invites and it sort of took off from there.
"

This would be a great set of anytime cards - love that bright envelope!

What inspires you?
"I'm inspired by my customer's ideas. I work with my customers on customizing their ideas....we can fully customize anything design/color to fit the customer's needs. I absolutely love the fact that I get to work with people all around the world. I've been fortunate enough to have done weddings for people in Hong Kong, Ukraine, Italy and the UK. We do a lot of business in Australia as well."

Such adorable family stationary!

Do you have any tips to offer for Etsy success?
"From my experience, I would say that success on Etsy is obtainable by continuously working hard to create a quality product, constantly work on new ideas and try to have good photographs that best represents your product. I think the main thing is to have fun with what you're doing. I think it will show in the work!"

Love this "Our Front Door" card set.
