I was thinking about mailing some entries in the newly posted DIY Network - Ultimate Retreat sweeps. The official rules state the following:


"Entrants using US mail may enter as often as they wish. Mail-in entries must be postmarked by September 26, 2018 and received by October 3, 2018. Limit one (1) entry per stamped envelope. Mechanically reproduced or pre-printed mailing labels or entries generated by script, macro or other automated or mechanical means and entries by any means which subvert the entry process will not be accepted. Mechanical stamping machines are acceptable."


Does "mechanical stamping machines are acceptable" mean that it's okay to fill out an entry form as well as the addresses on the mailing envelope with a typewriter?


Mr. Sweepy if you are reading this, please give us some insight.

I would ask on their facebook page but would think typing would be ok.  What they don't want is someone getting postcards printed at the copy center, etc.

I think they're referring to those self-inking stamps you can buy to stamp on your address?

I would say they are asking for, but saying directly, to hand print the envelops. They don't want someone using preprinted return labels or sending labels.
