Booooooom x Design for Mankind “Free Encouragement” Postcards!

The postcards are here and they are beautiful!!! The much anticipated finale to our insanely huge PROJECT # 5 – Free Encouragement. Thank you to all of you who submitted designs to Erin (designformankind) and to the hundreds of you who submitted encouraging words during the first part of the project! You can get these very limited edition postcards at our ETSY SHOP! Better hurry, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The postcards are all beautifully printed, gloss finish, and come in packs of 5 – each individually sealed and then shipped in a stiff cardboard package so they won’t be all bent when you get them.
