Instructables Halloween Postcards 2013 Answered

Thanks to everyone who commented! We're officially not taking any more names, and here are the winners of our special Halloween Prize Pack:


Happy Halloween, everyone!

Trick or treat!

We love celebrating Halloween here at Instructables and are already starting to prep our own costumes. Every year we send out postcards to all of you to mark our favorite holiday, and we're doing it again this year! 

If you'd like to receive a postcard, please leave a comment here by Friday October 11th, and we'll send you an address request through our normal prize claiming system. We're also sending a special prize pack with a limited-edition teeshirt and book to 10 randomly-selected people from the comments below. 

Happy Halloween, and we're looking forward to seeing all of your creations!


Wow, the pictures is very cute, and is funny.
The topic you choose is really unique!

thanks for the postcard and stickers! I recently moved, and fortunately it was forwarded to me. I would like to make sure that I get any future postcards--how can I change my mailing address with you?

Addresses are not kept on file. You will have to give your address every time something is mailed to you. :-)

i got two this year, one from my current address and one forwarded from two address ago.

Hmmm.... That's a little strange. AFAIK, they don't keep addresses. Not sure what to say. (You could pm Kazamataz).

We don't keep addresses. It's a nightmare to maintain, and people move all time.

Au contraire - I am the holder of the massive spreadsheet of addresses for these postcards. We do our best to update, but can only go off of the information you give us. And to thematthatter's point, unless the move is an obvious one, we usually hedge our bets and mail letters to both addresses... just in case there's someone with the same name in a different place.

Oh? I thought you deleted them every year?

a shame I would have won, but let's see next yearuma
"pena gostaria de ter ganho, mas vejamos o ano que vem"

First one I missed in the years I've been here. Having two jobs, school and no free time sucks.

Sorry, I always use the app.. My daughters would love to get some mail...

Hi We would love to get some snail mail please. It is going to be my 34th wedding anniversary On October 31. Sure would be nice to get a postcard on our special day.

I am already going to receive a Halloween postcard, because I think my work/contribution to instructables.com (I reported a couple of bugs) was considered maybe... But, I would really like to get the special prize pack with T-shirt and book that you are giving to randomly-selected people from the comments here, so, I am commenting here...!!!

Thank you very much for the postcard, and for the special prizes that you are giving to the randomly-selected people here!! And, A very Happy festival to all of you at instructables.com and to others here, also!!!
