The Graceful Envelope

The Graceful Envelope Contest is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers and administered by the Washington Calligraphers Guild.

This year’s theme was Address the Environment. Entrants were urged to design an envelope that promotes the preservation of our natural world and address it artistically. A trio of judges looked for skill in lettering, effective use of color and design, and creative interpretation of the theme.

This year, close to 150 entries were received; 12 were selected as “Winners” and 18 were given the distinction “Honorable Mention” in the contest’s adult division. The judges also selected student winners from 250 entries in the junior and children’s divisions.
