Lithuanian postcards + giveaway
You know when sometimes you just can't find a single postcard that you like...?
It happens now and then, in some places more than others, and it used to happen to a group of Lithuanian postcrossers - they were frustrated by the fact that they had a beautiful country, but no way to showcase it to the world properly through postcards!
Can you guess where this is going? Of course, they decided to make their own postcards! They searched for photos on their own archives, and looked for professional photographers or illustrators who wanted to share their art pieces with the world.
A couple of months and a few hundred pictures later, they took a vote on a Lithuanian forum to choose which pictures should be turned into postcards. Sixteen postcards were chosen for this special set, and sent to a professional print shop. Six thousand postcards were then printed and distributed between the participants of the project.
The Lithuanian postcrossers who undertook this challenge told us it wasn't an easy process, but it was very rewarding to finally have an assortment of postcards they were proud to send out!
They're so happy with them in fact, that they're looking forward to sharing them with you! :) They have 16 postcards set aside to 16 members. To receive one of them (sent from Lithuania, naturally!), all you need to do is leave a comment below, telling us something you know about Lithuania. You have a week to participate, and the 16 lucky users will be picked by the Lithuanian group themselves.
Have fun discovering this lovely country by the Baltic sea!
