April 2011 :: Giveaway winners and much more

I will go ahead and start with the "more" part, of this post.

Many of you experienced getting locked out during the commenting process for this giveaway.

I had one of you emailing me and letting me know about the issue, and multiple notes and comments on the EW Couture FB page let me know that most likely everybody entering the giveaway experienced this.

After talking to tech support I learned that repeated comment attempts from the same IP can now cause a temporary lock-out to prevent repeat, or spam comments.

While it is for the best, this change took me by surprise so I had no idea that it will affect the commenting process in the giveaway.

Along with my apologies for the inconvenience, here is a free EW Couture template download for everyone who entered the giveaway, or tried to :){Victoriana Custom Case and Custom DVD/CD label set download link valid 4/30/11 through 5/2/11 only}

If you have already purchased the Victoriana Custom Case and Custom DVD/CD label set, please email me with a proof of purchase, to receive a $16 EW Couture store credit, towards a different product.

While, not having all comments clustered together might've raised the chances for some to have an entry picked in the random drawing, I imagine it must've been quite frustraiting to be kicked out with no explanation while trying to add your comments.

I figured this would be a nice gesture. I hope you enjoy the template! Besides, tomorrow is my birthday and I haven't planned any big bash giveaway this year to celebrate it. Had the best intentions to do something like that, but sometimes you just have to pick your battles ;)

All EW Couture products on ewcouture.com will be retired this next week, as I am going to start designing print templates exclusively for Miller's Lab Design Market, so you can most likely expect to see last year's Marketing Sets on photodealoftheday.com, for their last goodbye.

For all of you who have a gift card or store credit on ewcouture.com and haven't used it yet, now is the time. Please feel free to email me, if you have any questions.



I  would say this download makes everyone a winner. Now here are the other winners! :)

Congratulations to you all! Please make sure to contact me in the next few days to claim your prize.(A general email did go out to all winners to let them know they are one of the twelve lucky ones :)
