  • JJ

    Great giveaway! Would like to add new services to the back side of my business cards – this would be a great way to do so!

  • Brad Kolodzaike

    With 500 new business cards I could start to spread the word about my photography around town.

  • Amy

    This would be perfect timing as I recently began updating my logo! If I win the cards I would begin leaving them around town to help drum up business, of course!

  • These cards would be perfect for my freelance web development business! I would leave these cards around town to help bring in business and show off the awesome cards!

    Great giveaway. UPrinting must love all the attention. I’ve just recently crafted a portfolio site worthy of presenting online and a matched pair for business cards would be super! Instead of trading phone numbers with new people, I’ll just hand them a business card. It’s certainly more professional, plus, I get to subtly advertise my website to them (and perhaps their friends/colleagues). I’ll also tack them up at local businesses with hopes of driving customers my way as well. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • diana buidoso

    ill use them for inspiration and creative work… will be a great way for me to learn more about professional working in this field


  • Jason Sargent

    I would use these business cards in my plot to take over the world! Haha… No, really I am a graphic design student at an Ai in southern cali and I would use this opportunity to utilize them for self promotion and put a few in my portfolio.

  • I’d do what all people with business cards do. I’d keep some in my suit jacket and everytime I meet a new person, slip one out and say “here’s my details”. Through word of mouth my freelance web-deisgn may kick off. If not I will still have some pretty nifty business cards.

  • Wow… what a great promotion. I’d use the credit to save a new client some money on a run. He’s trying to get his new business off the ground, and what a better way to spread his name than some free biz cards!

  • Ken

    I would love new business cards because my identity is a ruby red but stupid printrunner printed them black. I now have 500 black cards when I paid for colored cards =(

  • As I am trying to build my freelance business, I would start leaving business cards around the city, and passing them out to people I meet to get more business.

  • Nate

    These would be great to show off my new logo

  • These would be great for us. We are currently pushing out a redesign and have changed our contact info since we last printed cards.

    I’d like to saturate my area with Pay It Forward cards as I get creative and think of ways I can pay things forward – along with the deed done I’ll give them a card that says you have been the recipient of a Pay It Forward random act of kindness.
    In the next week try to think of anything you could do to Pay it forward to another person. (exact text yet to be decided on lol)

  • Holly

    My company was just bought out and I have no idea what will be happening to my job, but this is a great opportunity for my husband and I to start our own business and the cards would help get us going.

  • Hey I’d love some!

  • I would like to get some cards made where the fronts are all blank and the backs all look like playing card backs. Then my friends and I would play an uber-fancy version of 1000 blank white cards with them. That’s my best idea so far…

  • I’d love a new set of 500 business cards, I’m soon to finally rebuild my personal portfolio/blog and these would be a great stepping stone in doing so!

  • I would just print some more of my existing cards… I can always use more, I go to so many local networking events, I give out like a hundred a week!

  • This would be my first round of Business cards.
    What better to get people to know yourself by handing some cards.

    They totally Rock!!!

  • I’d love to win these cards. I’m just about out of the first run from my freelance marketing company, so this would certainly help with the ‘ol budget!

  • I’m rebranding me freelance company and I could certainly use 500 new business cards :)

  • 500 free biz cards? I’d update my look & make use of the 100% recycled stock. Being in a blue-state, local clients might respond better to enviro-friendly paper.

  • Tisa

    I would use them for my new photography company. ~ :) Thanks!

  • Pankaj

    I am a student, so i will promote myself with these cards.

  • I’m transitioning from full-time employment to full-time freelancing. Some fresh new business cards would help me greatly in drumming up new business.


  • I would use them to replace the stack of budget-induced pink post-it notes I carry around with my information.

  • Always need a new look. BCard my Business!

  • I made my previous round of promotional cards with Moo mini cards and they’re all gone now, and I think it would be fun to try the square 2×2 cards to promote the dinner blog. I think that’s a fun and memorable size that will get people’s attention!

  • I’d definitely use them for my blog. I deal with and work for a ton of PR’s. It would be nice to add my business card to my letters at the end of campaigns.

    thanks for the chance!!!!

    Blogfully yours,
    Barb ;)

  • I could most definitely use this for my freelancing graphic design business! I’ve been looking for a good printing company for a while, and this would really help!!

  • I would use the business cards to help spread the word about my web development services. A number of times people have asked for a business card from me and I am never able to please. These cards would finally allow me to fix that problem!

  • Anthony

    I’ve been wanting to try these guys out.
    The last company I ordered from sent cards that were bent and creased!

  • Josh

    I would get these printed for my freelancing company. I can’t afford to buy them right now, because I’m a physically disabled person who is making next to no money. So if I won these, that would really help me with getting myself (and my company) started.


  • I would love to win some free business cards for several reasons! 1. I haven’t had business cards printed in forever, 2. The business cards I have now for my freelancing is grossly outdated, 3. I have been wanting to see the quality of UPrinting business cards for future projects, and 4. I have been wanting to create some awesome personal cards, and this will push me to it!

    I hope I can win some free business cards for my freelancing!
