Due to a few problems with our previous post, we have created a new one with a much better offer. Lateral Code is willing to provide 5 lucky people with a royalty free PSD (Photoshop Display File) to WordPress (or HTML) conversion. All you need to do is send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org OR leave a comment here so we can get in touch.
