  • I would continue the re-branding of my business.

  • Um, yes please. : ) I’d like to get some cards printed for my Design business. I love my photography (which already has cards) but would just love to do some design on the side. I really miss that type of work from my old job.

  • awesome contest. count me in.

  • We are about to finish a complete design makeover for our branding for our photography business. I would love to launch it with some new Biz cards!!

  • As a baby designer myself, since I’m just starting out I’d use the cards in unique ways to market myself and my art. Rather than have them sit in a pile on a counter, or in a wallet, I’d leave them in unique places. Like on the mirror in a ladies room or in the napkin holder at a restaurant. Places you would not usually find them. Since they are die-cut which to me is unique, why not put them in unique places? I think it would be tons of fun. Thank you!

  • J Jones

    I’m a graduating student, and some new business cards would get me off to a great start in my career search.

  • Hey I’m running out of mine!
    I could use some more and being a poor college student this would help out a lot!

  • I would give them to everyone…my dentist, my doctor, the girl at the bank…I would mail them with my rent check and utility bills. Somebody somewhere would be so delighted to have received a little work of art. I know it would inspire them to remember me and call or email me. And I love getting emails and calls…and work!

  • I would LOVE to have new business cards! I would put them to good use by using them as an aid to help spread the word of my freelancing. As a graduating senior in college, this would help me get some work to help pay off all of my loans :)

  • I could definitely use some new business cards. Just finished a redesign of them and can’t really afford a reprint. This would be a life-saver. <3

  • Travis Taggart

    I would take the wicked cool die-cut cards and fling them into the hearts minds of my acquaintances.

    They will forever be taken-aback by the sheer power and persuasiveness of the brilliance that is my business cards.

    Some if not all of the recipients will wake up weeks later in a cold sweat only to be satiated as they pick my card up off their desk and relish the awesomeness therein.

  • Edward

    .-= Charlene´s last blog ..Social Media and Animal Shelters? =-.

  • Jaclyn Eichelberger

    As a newbie designer in my senior year of college, I would use my new business cards to get my name out in the design world. As of now I am just starting out and really feel the need to be creative in ways to be noticed. So these business cards would jump start my designing!

  • I’m gonna use them for promoting my recently launched design company.
    .-= Metin´s last blog ..How to create pressed letter effect in Photoshop =-.

  • Rich Hemsley

    I ran out of the last batch I ordered so winning these would be awesome. Plus, they’re die cut and there’s nothing better than die cut cards.

  • Starting upp my business. I need some cards. Packaging here I come!

  • Micah

    Just about to graduate from Design school – would love some free cards to get me started!

  • I have decided that 2010 is the year for me… I am turning up the heat on my design business. In order to attract new clients, I need new business cards…

    So in short by winning these business cards I think that it would help my freelancing and networking ability tremendously!

  • I recently just got their paper sample in the mail. Very cool!

    Oh, the things I’d do.
    With 500 business cards,
    I would rule the world!

    No, seriously,

    One site at a time.

  • I got the card from Moo for myself, wanna try it from Uprinting so this way I can have options.

  • Lisa

    I’d use them to promote my Etsy shop.

  • Fnkymnky

    What about outside the U.S and Canada? :(

  • I’d make a hat out of them, and wear them to my next trade show. It would be more fulfilling knowing that the cards were actually used instead of thrown away. Trying my best to reduce the carbon footprint as it is. I went to the trashcan at the last trade show i attended and ruffled through just to see how many papers were picked up and thrown away, its kind of a shame. No doubt there is a need for business cards, and having them die-cut is awesome.

  • Hi, Please do count me in. I would like to win free business card because few of my client had dont through UPrinting and they loved it so i also just wanted to give a try as i am a web designer and have to test every designs. :)

    Thanks

    Dear cool kids at Uprinting and Colorburned.
    I would create cards to pour out to the masses that are so fresh, people would feel cool simply holding them. Not only will they help you getting a date, but also bring warmth that lonely pocket in your wallet and a little extra cushion to your seat.
    Thank you for considering me in the generous giveaway (and all those kids you are helping get dates.)
    Sincerely,
    Kayla

  • My wife is just getting started with her Web development business and hopes to make a career out of it. She has been making baby steps and she is coming back from abroad after 4 months this weekend. Her own business cards would be absolutely terrific to get her dream business off the ground!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    As a marketing student, I’d use these business cards to promote myself.

  • I would accept these free cards and then turn around and hand them out for free, albeit at a slower pace, over time. I’d take the opportunity to update my brand design as well as win as many free lunches as possible by putting them in the fishbowls of various eating establishments!

  • BigTorsk

    I’d use the cards to spread word about the Kentucky Seminole club.

  • I would use them to promote, promote, promote ~ myself and my genealogical and family historian services.

  • Alysha

    I just designed my first business card and would love to get it professionally printed to give to potential employers.

  • Jenn Tsang

    My sister and I are starting up an amateur (but projected to be awesome) event planning business. With us both being broke college students, and business cards being essential for a word of mouth business, these cards would definitely help us kick start our entrepreneurial business.

    I want in. What would I do with them? Hand them out as quickly as humanly possible. Free die-cut business cards … bonus!

  • Mary M

    I could use some business cards for myself.

  • Sue Densmore

    I would love some new cards to give out to parents and colleagues at school, and when I am at various meetings with other teachers.

  • Let’s be more selfless. Why not use the cards for advertising Haiti relief charities, such as Save the Children and The Red Cross? Come up with a clever and informative design. Leave the cards everywhere you go – restaurants, fuel stations, banks, coffee shops, bulletin boards, etc.

    Act out and help the cause for supplying help to the tens of thousands of folks without food, water, and a roof over their head. Sure, we all need self-growth and support, but there seems to be others that need it much more.

  • Desi Munda

    I sure could use some business cards, considering I just got started and have nothing yet to offer to potential customers!! Count me in!

  • Tami Qualls

    I’d use the free business cards to put my blog and contact info to include in any mailings I send out.

  • Danielle

    giving it one more try…

  • Jamie Myong

    i would love free business cards! i meet so many people every week but it’s such a hassle having to write down my contact every time i talk to someone… i work for a nonprofit organization and they don’t supply any business cards.. ^^;

  • Free Business cards? That’s something every fresh college grad looking to go build their network could use, right? That’s what I’d do with them- maybe even save a few for the next Front-End Design Conf in Tampa.

    Just got laud off so I’m going through a rebrand. New business cards are on the “to-do” list.
