Knock Knock Giveaway!

post signature






If you have not yet checked out Knock Knock, I highly recommend a visit. The website abounds with humorous stationery and office supplies. Practical, funny and beautiful... sounds like a winning combination to me! See the end of this post for instructions on how to enter for a chance to win the Personal Library Kit or another item of your choice from Knock Knock.

The Personal Library Kit caught my eye because I am always lending out books and not always getting them back. Let me just insert here that I am guilty of the same thing so this library kit seemed like a great idea.

I decided to create a bookmark in a similar design style that the borrower could keep potentially making the return of the book a bit less painful. :)

For this project, you will need the following:
  • Rounded rectangle shape
  • Pattern of your choice (I created my own in Photoshop)
  • Sans-serif block type font in a medium weight
  • Quotation of your choice. I chose a quote about reading. Strange, I know.

Create a new document in your photo editing software. I chose to create a 2.5x8 inch bookmark.

Fill your background layer with your chosen pattern.

Add the rounded rectangle on top of the pattern, center it on the document and fill it with color.

Type the words 'keep this' in a large size using your sans-serif block style font and type 'return the book' in brackets just below it.

About half way down the bookmark, add the dotted line, center it in the horizontal space and fill it with color.

Below the dotted line, type your quote in a smaller point size using the same font as above.

There you have it, a fun bookmark to send along when you lend out your books. A nice reminder at the top and a great quote at the bottom! Print out a stack of bookmarks and have them ready to tuck in the next book for a friend. Don't forget to add your personal library card so you can get that book back!

You can win the Personal Library Kit or another item of your choice from Knock Knock. Follow the instructions below to enter.

  13. I've always loved this company's stuff! And I love your idea for designing a bookmark for your friends/personal-library patrons :) Personally, I designed my own bookplate (it's very large, hard to cover up!) and stuck it in all my books. :)
