Tea & Crayons Promotional Packages - and GIVEAWAY!

So we've been busy the past few months getting our Self Promotion organised (not a small feat when we all live in different parts of the country!) and now they are being sent out as we speak to Art Directors across the country, in hope of drumming up some interest about our collective and ourselves as individual illustrators.

Each package has 6 postcards in, one from each of us. We did 12 designs in total, 2 each, so that we can mix and match depending on the recipient. For example, this one is going to a publishing company, so I chose ones that I thought fitted that particular companies' style already. There's also a hand-written cover letter explaining who we are!

 Then the postcards are bundled up, with string in my case, and a teabag, crayon and badge is added. There's also a sticker which I'm using to seal the packages with, so they know who it's from before they open it.
Et Voila! I am pinning the button to the edge of the teabag so that it doesn't get lost in the depths of the jiffy bag.

 Then the sticker is stuck on the back, and it's ready to go!

Here's my first batch of packages ready to go - we've each got about 75 contacts to send to, and this is my first 20. In a few weeks all will be sent out!

So the next step is to contact these people to see if they've received our lovely present and if they are interested in what we do. Of course, if you are reading this and are a commissioner of illustration, do let us know and we'll send you one in the post!

So now I can reveal that we are launching our first giveaway - one of our lucky followers will receive one of these packs, with maybe a few more surprises inside too ;) All you have to do is follow us on twitter - simples. When we get to 1000 followers (dizzy heights we know) then we will draw a follower at random and you'll get a lovely T&C package in the post. Good luck!!

I love this! This is such a good pack to send out to companies, they would be mad to not go for your collective quirky styles.
I'm a creative myself and getting people to stop and look at your work is the hardest thing. I wish you luck with your packs! xxx

I came across your blog this morning and think it is brilliant. Although I am not an artist I like to play around with being creative. Plus I love the idea of a collective - people working together to achieve something they couldn't on their own, it is the way of the future. Just started following you on twitter and excited to see where you go.
