    What a fantastic idea, I would love to win 1000 business cards! I’ve been working as a freelancer for quite some time now and have no had the chance to get business cards. Each time I go out for meetings, I usually have to write down my name and number for various people and let’s face it, that’s just not how things should be done now is it?!

    This would give me a lovely way to springboard myself in the second half of the year with a lovely identity.

    PS. this is still not wrapping gents :)

    It would be a great idea to have a card which makes me distinctive, different from other people’s. I would like to make use of this card to increase my social network, so it may provide for what I would require as an entrepreneur in the future.

    Hey! I love this blog, and love this contest!

    I’m a self-taught amateur photographer that loves fashion, design, and architexture.

    This prize would amazing, as I’ve been shopping online for the past 2 or 3 weeks trying to find a quality place to order new cards from. Perhaps UPrinting will become my new online printer of choice.

    I only do photography part-time, and it’s an expensive hobby to turn into a business, free business cards would be an amazing gift, especially since a card can be the first face of a business that a client has to look at.

    Love the blog, and I’ll keep reading, even if I don’t win. hehe

    Hi!
    I was just thinking about getting business cards printed and
    I have been working on a few design concepts.
    Looks like this giveaway might be an opportunity to get some :).

    I’d love free business cards. I’ve recently started selling AVON, and I would love an opportunity ot reach more customers in a convenient manner. Selling AVON is my way of saving up for college in our lackluster economy.

    Wow! Definitely I love this blog since it’s the first page i surf on upon switching my PC!
    Well, I would use those cards to fuel my computer parts business which I have started at the begining of this year.
    The company is still at it’s early stage yet growing at a fast pace. The next marketing strategy I wanna use is taking up contracts for providing computers and peripherals to larger companies, which would definitely motivate me in implementing this new project if I win the business cards.
    Firstly, it would help me cut down the costs of business cards for during meetings and demos for larger firms.
    Secondly, after visiting uprinting’s website, I found that the cards are real worthy since the designs, style and colors and so much attractive which would have made the BEST BUSINESS CARDS for me!
    If there is a wish, there is a will!
    P.S: I love the “Worldwide Reach” & “Access to the World” designs since it would feature the communication parts of the company and the import of computer parts.
    Well, that’s it!
    As for me, I would continue checking this web everyday, but these types of contest might attract more readers often! Thanks Michael.

    Hi – I’m in the early stages of opening a high-quality child care center. I don’t want to use the cards from my other job, since it’ll be own business, so having my own business cards would be great. I’d design them to be just as special as my company will be. Thanks!

    design im a bodygaurd/driver for a CEO and I constantly get asked about what
    kind of services i offer and i dont have a card to hand potential clients.

    Hey… this is truly fantastic!! Almost unbelievable in the current market scenario.. which I guess is what make it so surreal!!

    Myself and my partner are, after lots of effort and hard-work, ready to setup our new business. We used to work elsewhere before, but after having saved up a bit, we’re going to concentrate our energies on being entrepreneurs! As its a new venture, even basic frills wll be a little tight to begin with, so this is something that we could really use!! We can front the shipping costs..

    Thumbs up for the promotional campaign.. hope we’re lucky! :)

    I’m entering this on behalf of my boyfriend James.

    James is an amazing painter, awesome artist, and loving boyfriend.

    If James won this, he could produce some amazing cards that could really help him establish himself and spread the word about his art. I would love to have this opportunity to be made available to him.

    Thanks!

    I am an interior designer and I would like to redesign my world
    and to take life in my own hands.
    For that I decided to make what I like most : design walls.
    Therefore I and a good friend of mine would make an online shop
    with decorating things for walls: stickers,digital paintings,
    hand made paintings.So,the business cards would be one of the
    fundamental things to build the wall.
    Thank you,Bianca
