To mark the launch of The Stick Chair Journal (coming in August 2022), we’re giving freely 400 Stick Chair Benefit Badges to readers who’ve constructed a stick chair and may comply with directions.
This promotion ends after we run out of the benefit badges or on Dec. 31, 2022, whichever comes first. (When the time comes, I’ll announce the tip of the promotion on the weblog and delete this weblog entry.)
Right here’s find out how to get your benefit badge – one to a buyer. Please learn rigorously.
- Construct a stick chair with your personal palms. (Not a body chair, ladderback chair, Windsor/Forest chair, IKEA chair, folding chair and so on.) A real, vernacular stick chair.
- Take an image and print it out on any paper.
- Ship a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) to us with the image of your stick chair. Right here’s find out how to deal with the envelope:
Stick Chair Benefit Badge
Misplaced Artwork Press
837 Willard St.
Covington, KY 41011
Once we obtain your envelope, we’ll add your photograph to a cool collage I’m creating. Then we’ll slide a benefit badge into your SASE, seal it and put it within the mailbox at Greer and ninth streets.
That is the *solely* option to get a benefit badge. You’ll be able to’t purchase one. You can’t twist our arms to simply accept an emailed photograph. Worldwide readers are welcome to take part, however they’ll in all probability must put a U.S. International stamp on the SASE.
We’re DIY individuals, proper? You’ll be able to determine this out with out asking us to bend the principles, can’t you? After all you’ll be able to!
Please don’t ship images of 10 stick chairs and ask for 10 benefit badges. They’re one per buyer. Please don’t ask our customer support individuals to do you a favor and mail you one. They will’t. Please don’t pester Megan to sneak you one. She received’t.
So put in your big-person britches, construct a stick chair and earn your benefit badge.
