The Number one Inksters Christmas Hat photo won Mark Sinclair not only this superb golden egg but also an Easter Chocolate Selection Box, again by Chococo.

Chococo do not deliver their chocolates to the USA so we sourced an alternative Easter Egg for our three US winners (Richard Prickman, Jordan Rushie and Jennifer Marshall). This was a Dark Chocolate Truffle Egg from Barkeater Chocolates via Chocolate.com.

Thanks must go to everyone who took part in the competition and of course to the wonderful designers at O Street who came up with the design as part of our new branding. We had a great response with the Inksters Christmas Hat being a hot topic well beyond Christmas 2011. Indeed this is set to continue well beyond Easter 2012 with Michelle Hynes taking her hat on Global Travels that should see it make appearances in Mongolia/China in June and the Ice Hotel in Sweden in December. Join Michelle in wearing your Inksters Christmas Hat throughout the year. We will continue to post any photos we receive at:-


In the meantime - Happy Easter!
