Calligraphers everywhere are invited to enter the 20th annual Graceful Envelope Contest, conducted by the Washington Calligraphers Guild and the National Association of Letter Carriers. This year's theme, The Superlative Letter S, looks for envelopes designed around anything beginning with the letter S.
Winners will be chosen based on artistic hand lettering, creative interpretation of the theme and effective use of color and design, including the incorporation of postage stamp(s). There is no entry fee.
