Personalized Pens Giveaway!!!

Recently, it struck me how very rarely I write anything by hand these days. (Sometimes it seems that the only time I pick up a pen is to sign a check!) I used to be a big letter-writer back in the day (remember "pen pals?" ;), but as the years went by and I got busier and busier, old fashioned correspondence fell by the wayside, something I still regret.

One of my newest "resolutions" has been to take more time to write hand-written notes. It can be tricky to find the time... when email, Facebook, or texting is just so much quicker (and for the record, I don't even do much of those :P) - but so worth it.

Is this true for you, as well? How would you like to get inspired with some personalized pens, just to make your "snail mail" correspondence a little bit sweeter?


You came to the right place, because Amsterdam Printing is letting me give away 50 of their personalized Inspire pens!!! You could win these beauties, worth $149.95, personalize them pretty much anyway you want, and use them for your business, organization, personal correspondence and more. How awesome is that??? :D

How to Enter:
  • Comment on this post and tell me how you would use these pens if you win! You must leave an email address or some other way to contact you in the event that you are the winner. This 1st entry is mandatory.

For additional entries, you can...

  • Follow AmandaBeth through Blogger/Google/other feed, AmandaBFly on Twitter (I follow back!), Amanda Flynn on Pinterest, or become a fan of AmandaBeth on Facebook - 1 entry for each
  • Post about the giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, et cetera. (You must include the link to your post in your comment!) - 2 entries for each


The giveaway will run until midnight (EST) on October 12, 2011. The winner will be chosen through Random.org, announced the next day and contacted via email. Only U.S. residents are eligible for the giveaway, due to legal restrictions.

Be sure to check out Amsterdamprinting.com - to whom I owe this fun giveaway! Besides promotional pens, they offer lots of other goodies. :)

Have a good night! I'll be posting birthday-ish things over the next few days. Stay tuned... ;)

-Amanda

Katrina said...

Hmm, I think I would personalize them by putting a small reminder/encouragement for me to write to my Compassion child overseas. I would only use a few, and the rest I could pass out to other friends who sponsor children so they would be reminded too!

I use pens all the time, when I can actually find them that is - they are hard to come by in a full household. If I were to win these, I would use them for snail writing to my two pen pals (a friend away at collage and a blogger buddy) and my journaling(not a word but i'll pretend for a minute), writing adventures and would decorate with inspirational verses that I could give away as gifts =)

I adore pens, a wee bit more than paper and a tad less than typewriters.

Hmmm, if I won I don't know what I would do with such an abundance! I am always loosing my pens though, so I would probably personalize them with something encouraging and pass some along to others and keep refills for me!

How lovely!

I write all the time with pens. I go to Staples all the time to buy MORE pens. I simply love them.

I'd probably keep at least a handful for me, and give the rest to my family. I think some sort of inspiring book quote from the Lord of The Rings might go on the custom message spot. :-)

Hey Amanda! Thanks for a great give-away again. I would use these pens a number of ways...either by putting some kind of cheery or inspirational message on them and handing them out to friends, or using them to write letters and scribble down ideas.

You can contact me through commenting on my blog, ourspareoom.wordpress.com.
Blessings,

Wonderful!

There are at least three different things I would put on them. I would have a hard time making up my mind!

1) My blog's name. Chipmunk's Corner.
2) My Sister's Photography Business - Missy's Photography.
3) The music studio I am now teaching for - Able To Play Studio.

I love collecting quotes, so a few of those would go on the pens....I would probably give some pens away, and keep the rest to use for schoolwork, letter writing, etc. ;D

Really love your blog, BTW! Thanks for doing the giveaway!

I write letters to my cousins and my grandparents and several pen-pals, a personaized pen would make it all the more exciting :)

Elizabeth O. McBride said...

I still write to many people, mostly older family members. I would use the pens to raise ocular melanoma awareness. These pens are good quality pens.
