One week and counting and the birthday party is still in full swing! In case you missed the announcement, we’ve received so many prize donations that we’re keeping this thing going ’til the very last giveaway has been awarded – so check back all weekend long for more giveaways, pop-quiz prizes, and Facebook flash giveaways! Curious what prizes we have left? Well here’s a sampling for you!

Right now we have an amazing camera bag giveaway from *emera bags!

emera green messenger

One lucky Paperie reader will win an *emera Green Messenger camera bag, valued at $109.00!

There are times when you don’t need to carry a standard sized emera bag. A short trip, say. Or if you’re just toting a smaller camera, an iPad and a little lunch. Enter the Messenger, economic in stature yet generous in stash-ability. Impeccably designed to store and protect all your spendy stuff, it has four flexible padded compartments and a deep inside zip pocket. Wear it across the body courier-style to keep your hands free for a quick cappuccino. Chic, smart and shiny. Green with orange lining.

• Water-resistant PU coated canvas with soft leather straps and trim
• Comfy shoulder pad on the strap
• Top flap whips closed and stays closed thanks to magnetic buttons
• Flap has zipper pocket roomy enough for a small notebook
• Wide back pocket – ideal for your phone
• Interior zip pocket for passport, tickets, and fancy snacks
• Modular Velcro dividers for flexible organizing
• Durable canvas lining
• Small metal feet to help protect the base


You can see more of the Green Messenger, and just what it will hold, in my Professional Photographer Magazine column (and accompanying, expanded Web Exclusives piece) from December 2011.

• Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
• Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
• Nikon SB-800
• Apple iPad2
• Speck iPad2 FitFolio Cover

Happy Halloween! Today we have a treat instead of a trick for you – a giveaway and vendor/guest post by one of our new multi-advertisers Rice Studio Supply!

Good for your prints… Good for the environment!

Rice Studio Supply presents their new Artisan Portrait case.


rice studio supply

While traveling in India, Scott Rice visited a village where the art of paper making has been practiced since 1590. Handmade paper is crafted from 100% recycled cotton fiber. The stock is acid free, archival quality, and simply beautiful. Scott knew this was the answer to your requests for stylish photo packaging that is safe for photos and safe for the environment.

eco chic Rice Studio Supply

The Artisan Portrait Case is an eco-friendly presentation package with natural deckle edges. The paper is handmade one sheet at a time, using natural products, so no two deckle edges are identical. The deep cocoa color is available in 5×7, 8×10, 8×12, 11×14, and 16×20 sizes. Rice Studio Supply will sell these handmade products from eco-friendly paper at the same cost as mass produced wood pulp papers.
