    Do they have any restrictions on entering? If it’s not stated, then why wouldn’t you be able to enter?

  • Because once before Grafix contacted me and asked me to fill in a survey on drafting film, for which they said they would then send me some samples of their drafting film, so I was more than happy to oblige. On completion of the survey, they informed me that they hadn’t realised that I resided outside of the States and therefore I wouldn’t be eligible for the samples. I saw red, though and jumped up and down and sent an email of complaint, and in the end they sent some samples to me, which happily I was able to use for this contest. I also tried to buy some drafting film direct from their site, only to find out that they don’t ship internationally. So, I am wondering if perhaps I am on their mailing list, but really the contest is for US residents only – as you say, I can’t see that written anywhere Barb, so fingers crossed :)
