  • I know i’m not in US still i’m crazy about bcard. I would just frame one and lock the rest.

  • Hmmm, what would I do with brand spanking new business cards? I would distribute them globally in those fishbowls where you have a chance to win a free lunch. I suppose that I would also use them to try to get more clients. Sure, clients pay you with money, but there is nothing like a free lunch from a cheap diner where the food gives you permanent lower GI problems!

  • I would use these cards to advertise myself to get more business

  • I hope, i winn :)

  • We’ll need marketing :P

  • Would love some business cards to really spread the word about my freelance design services. I primarily design for bands & musicians on a budget, and what way to better reinforce that principle than with some free prints ;)

  • Christina Wolfe

    I would stick them in bathroom stalls at bars, the buttons in an elevator, car door windows, pay phones, anywhere and everywhere people would look at on a regular basis.

    Any leftovers would then be stuck in random mailboxes.

    I think that would do the trick.

  • I would use these cards the same way I use ALL my business cards.

    1. Drop in fishbowls at Chipotle to win more free lunches for 10 people
    2. Drop in fishbowls at ANY restaurant offering free lunch.
    3. promote my business by:
    a. putting them in fishbowls at fine eateries.
    b. pinning them on bulletin boards at book stores and other local establishments
    c. handing them out at meetings.
    4. use them to scoop up dead bugs and deposit said bugs in garbage receptacle.

  • I would use my business cards to (hopefully) kick-start my career. I’m a recent college grad struggling to find a job (like so many) and having some business cards would really help!

  • I would use new cards as a hard-realtime deadline to finally create a good logo for my professional web site and freelance programming services.

  • Business cards are important to leave that lasting impression after a networking opportunity. I want to be able to give out cards that will really represent who I am. I’ve checked out cards made by printrunner and think that their products are able to match my intentions!

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Ann Allen

    No really I would probably forward the gift to my daughter that just graduated from College with a BFA in Graphic Design. It would be a great start for her.

  • I was just browsing for a site to get some cards printed for my brand new business, when i suddenly felt this strong urge to log into facebook that i couldnt resist and there at the top of the page was colourburned saying they were giving away business cards, I decided it was fate!

  • Jason Sargent

    I would use these cards in place of my old cards which were misprinted!

    Hope luck is on my side today!

  • I would use the cards to build temporary housing for homeless people. How’s that for guerrilla marketing?..

  • Taryn

    SWEET giveaway! These would be a gynormous help to my startup!

  • V J Spindler III

    Just moved and new business cards would be WONDERFUL!

  • With brand new business cards I could launch my company into a whole new realm after receiving my degree this fall.

  • I would use these cards to promote my spinoff business painting animal portraits! Woof! * crossing fingers, squeezing eyes shut *

  • KBenford

    I would use the business cards to give out to potential clients and to also network at different events.

  • I would give them away to people for free.

  • Digna Dreibelbis

  • amie

  • I’ll finally start designing my business cards if I get this!

  • Nate Shei

    I would use these business cards to promote my business

  • I’d go stand in the middle of Times Square and hand them out to every passerby, just like the guys handing out strip club postcards/flyers– as a marketing/promo tool, of course.

  • Meghan

    As I enter my senior year of college, I’m really starting to worry about the current job situation. (I know, who isn’t?) I want to do advocacy work in D.C., and receiving complimentary business cards would do wonders for my networking efforts while preparing my bank account to pay for city rent on a non-profit budget!

  • Adrian Skinner

    I would use them to help promote myself with my new rebranding of myself that I recently changed from my previous branding I had.

  • I’d love to win, so I could print business cards for a friend!

  • mary

    I want to use them as mini flyers :)

  • Marc Aplin

    I would use all 1000 business cards to make a tower of cards… did I mention it would be inverted? ;)

  • I have some cards I need to get printed for a card game some time in the near future and this would be perfect. My only problem would be choosing whether or not I want round corners and if I wanted something on the blank side of the card like a border or not.

  • I would use them to promote my biz.

  • I would hand them out.

  • I’d use them to help spread the word about my business ventures, or get my new project launched.

  • w00t! another awesome giveaway from Grant! winning cards would be awesome since i’ve been out for a month. i need to drum up some more business.

  • Gaia

    I would like to have very small (read: sustainable) business cards that have a unique design – in fact, I don’t want people to even think of the term “business card” when they receive one. And what would I do with them? Well, give them out to people I really, really, like! (In the hopes that we may collaborate together on something amazing in the future, or simply so that they have my phone number, or just to have something to write a song lyric on, depending on the situation). :)

  • I would really love to win this, I just graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and it would be a pleasure to hand people something (a little window) into my world of design. Print will live forever!

  • Would love to win this! Thanks.
    .-= Elaine´s last blog ..Sponsor- Tulle =-.

  • I’d use the business cards for good, not evil. To generate new business, not old. To spread the word of good design, creativity, advertising, photography, and visual beauty to all!
    .-= Ravi Vora´s last blog ..1 Bag At a Time =-.

  • Amy

    Thanks for another awesome opportunity! My current cards need an update, as both my Twitter and Facebook fan pages were created after my last batch arrived, so they’re missing this vital info!

  • Online video series could use some publicity. These business cards would be used to promote the channel.
    .-= Mikah Sargent´s last blog ..Mikah-Sargent- -Live4Glitter Why are we up at this hour I woke up about an hour ago and now I cant sleep =-.

  • Darn I missed out :(

  • I would use them to slit my wrists until this economy turns around. jk. but not really. :)
    .-= Amanda´s last blog ..DWG no 076 =-.

  • I would distribute them during my senior art show. It’s something I need and even if it were only 250 cards, winning them would help immensely money wise.

  • I recently got let go from ANOTHER job due to downsizing and I’m beginning to start my own freelance design job!! I’m very excited as this is what I have wanted to do, BUT I have no business cards to advertise myself. That part is in the works but if I could win some free ones that would be amazing! So please pick me it would be an honor!!

  • Ruben

    seeing how UPrinting never contacted me, I’ll give PrintRunners a chance :)

  • I recently slightly tweaked my personal branding and colors and Added a new phone number to the mix of contact information… so with that, I have redesigned my business card and have just been waiting to have some new ones printed. New cards would be handed out to possible new clients, or existing clients, and would reflect my branding and color changes, along with the addition of more current/updated contact information.

  • Francey

    I would use the business cards to promote my business!

  • Matt Christy

    Please pick me. I would use the card to get my freelance web development business going I have been working on. Thanks

  • Dave Cross

    I would use the business cards to promote my Barbershop Harmony Chorus. We’re a non-profit (meaning poor) group and can use all the help we can get.

  • I would use these to promote my blog locally. I am trying to expand that section, and it is so much easier to pass along a card when visiting small local stores. Most are not ready to commit to advertising or features on the spot. This would give them a chance to check things out and get back to me, when they are ready.

  • Oh boy. Free business cards!

    Also, to promote myself.

  • I’d use them to promote a small side business that I have.

  • I will fully cover the inside of my local phone booth then film people’s reaction as a social experiment and post it on my website.

  • I will use them to make a nice company card to introduce our services to a target A+.

  • I would play 52 card pick up 86 times over! (and 28 card pick up once)

  • Egor Kotelnikov

    I would promote my production company Perplexity Pictures.

  • I would love some Business Cards. I’ve been meaning to print some for my freelance graphic/web design business. I’m a student in school right now and these would really help out a lot!
