Because Kris Allen is the sweetest thing and has some of the best fans in the universe…

Look what Kris did after hearing about the postcards!

Thank you, Kris, you are so sweet! I really look forward to meeting you in person one day soon…you better be touring to Asia soon after your album drops…preferably to Hong Kong… :)

And thank you, @kradamantium! Not only did you give us one of the hottest Kris Allen videos of all time, you also told Kris about the postcards and took this adorable picture of him–um, trying to re-enact the pose on the postcard…lol…I love it!

You’re awesome, thank you! <3

Look for these Kris Allen postcards at The Mint LA!

[Updated with photos of postcards at the venue, also, look what Kris did after hearing about the postcards! :D]

Because I’m really excited about Kris’ new show and his new music, and I really wish his management would do more to promote him, I’m paying out of my own pocket to have 250 Kris Allen postcards printed and shipped to The Mint, which should be available starting from Tuesday or Wednesday. (I’ll update this post once the postcards have been shipped.) and you can see the postcards in action in the photos embedded below!

Since it’s the first time I work with this particular printing company in LA, the colors could be a bit off from the original design, and I had to change the layout a bit to fit everything into a 6″ x 4″ postcard, but I hope they won’t look too bad.

Why postcards, you ask? Well, they’re small and easy to carry around; people who already know Kris can get him to autograph on them at the show; people who don’t know who he is can grab a card and look him up later although not much is updated or available at his official web site.

So, grab a few of them if you’re going to the show; ask your friends to mail you a couple if you can’t make it…do whatever you want. The Mint might throw the rest away so take as many as you want before the night is over!

So…here is the other design that I entered into the contest. I really prefer this one over the winner, but I knew it wouldn’t get chosen because it would give people who are not familiar with Kris the wrong idea about the kind of music to be expected at the show.

Having said that, I really do love this picture of Kris by FourThirteen Photography, so I made a couple of prints for my own enjoyment :) It’s also been the wallpaper of my iPhone and 2 Macs ever since the design was born. To be honest, I never truly appreciated the beauty of my iPhone’s Retina display until I was viewing this poster with it.

A high resolution Kris Allen on my iPhone 4S = the best thing ever.
