Design Team Call – Become an INKgirl

ARTFUL INKABLES is looking for new design team members! We need your help and enthusiasm promoting our products through your personal blog and online galleries. We are looking for team members who are excited about stamping, and would love being a part of a fun and friendly design environment. No prior design team experience is necessary. If you’ve never been published… Don't worry! We want to encourage you to show us your best, even if you have not been widely recognized as a designer. This call is open to everyone - if you aren't in the US or Canada you are more than welcome to apply!!**

Application Process

All submissions must be received by 12:00am MST, Feb 27, 2010. New design team members will be contacted by March 4, 2009.
