Win A Photo Printer and $100 Gift Certificate from Red River Paper

ImageWin a Canon Premium Inkjet Photo Printer, an awesome plugin for Photoshop, and $100.00 worth of top quality inkjet cards and envelopes from Red River Paper!

What a great giveaway! We’re so excited to be able to offer this to Everything Etsy readers. Red River paper makes, hands down, the best inkjet paper we’ve ever tried and this is your chance to find out first-hand.

First – The Paper

Last week, Tim designed a pretty greeting card for spring. We wanted to try out the sample Red River sent for us to tell you about. He made it very bright and colorful so we’d really be able to get an idea of the quality. The results were simply stunning.


I wish we could just pass these around the room right now so you can all touch and feel this paper while getting a first-hand look at the incredible bright white background and the way it makes the colors pop! When Tim first handed me the card, it was a “Wow!” moment for sure!

Three things are immediately apparent when you look at this card, which is printed on the 60lb River Linen greeting card paper.

  1. The colors! – The brilliant and flawless white background makes the colors jump off the paper. If I sound dramatic, it’s because it really is dramatic. You have to see it to understand just how beautiful it looks.
  2. The texture! – This particular Red River product has a textured surface that is very faint, it may not even be visible in the pictures, but is very classy. When you hold it in your hands you immediately register the fine texture, which makes the next point surprising.
  3. The clean and sharp lines! – We didn’t realize how much detail we were losing with lesser quality paper. There is zero fade on the edges of these lines. They are ultra-sharp and the colors don’t bleed together at all. There is a place under that little bug’s smile where a line of blue is clearly visible and it can’t be thicker than the point of a pin.


Red River offers a complete assortment of papers and the prices are much less than you’ll see at retail outlets. No matter what kind of paper you use, they should be your source. If you follow the ad in our sidebar, you’ll see a special coupon code for Everything Etsy readers that will get you a free sampler kit (you just pay shipping). It’s a great deal and you’ll be hooked from then on!

Now – The Giveaway!

The winner receives all three of the following!

What a great giveaway! Any one of the three things this package includes would be a very nice win indeed, but all three makes for a really happy day for the winner!

    For my art prints, I recently switched from Epson’s 4 and 5-star line of Matte Presentation Papers to Red River’s 100% PCW recycled GreenPix photo paper and love, Love, LOVE IT. It would be wonderful to try out their pre-scored notecards on the GreenPix paper as well.

  42. Jenna says

    Paper – I would start off with the GreenPix to make personalized notecards to send off to family and friends. Then the post cards, make em up and send em off when I’m away – so much better than what you find in the tourist shops. The 60lb river linen is gorgeous and would definitely be reserved for a special occasion!

  43. says

    Definately could use the postcards for business promotion. But the 100% cotton cards sound good also. Hard to choose!

  49. says

    This would be so awesome to own. I need a good quality printer to print pictures. With all my family living over 800 miles away I send them lots of pictures. So this would be perfect. If I won I would spend my 100 on some 62lb. GreenPix™ Matte paper, as well as some of their post cards. Don’t forget some envelops as well 100% Recycled Content Envelopes love how they are made with 100% recycled content.
