Designing a Memorable Business Card + Giveaway

I know you love custom business cards and clearly, so do I! Which is why I am excited to share a little biz card project I’ve been working on with online printing resource, UPrinting (plus a giveaway for you – but I’ll get to that in a minute)…

I already have a stack of standard business cards that I use for conferences and events, but I wanted an alternative design that I could include with freebies and packages that are a little more fun and memorable. That’s the whole point of business cards anyway, right?

So I worked with UPrinting and designed a custom die-cut circle card that could pull double duty. I am really happy with how they turned out and the print quality is perfect, even with me at the helm (I am not the best designer and have been known to mess up formats and pixel dimensions in the past when it comes to business cards).

Here’s how they turned out…

And here’s how I plan to use them at networking events and craft shows, etc…

Kind of fun, huh? And speaking of fun, it’s time for a giveaway!

UPrinting is generously giving away a set of custom die-cut business cards (which come in lots of different shapes, not just circles) to three very lucky winners. Yay!

Here are the giveaway details…

I’m graduating with my bfa in photography in a few weeks and it would be amazing to have new business cards to go along with the postcards i had printed for my senior bfa exhibition. Much of my work falls away from traditional photography so it would be really amazing to have a non-traditional business card to fit with my work.


I’m in the final stages of starting my new business (handmade
Home goods!) and have yet to order business cards. These would be PERFECT!!

It’s just time for me to get new cards. I work as a freelancer, so having cards on me all the time help the business. You never know when someone is going to ask me what I do…


I’m going to need business cards now that I’m going to be a fresh graduate! Thanks for sharing!

I recently purchased my very own website name ( and completed the design for a landing page. I can’t wait to get new cards to show it off!


I hope to use these business cards to distinguish myself from my ginormous business class in a unique, but professional way!


Your circle cards are so cute! I have a handful of business cards I print myself but for these cut die-cut ones I think adding something extra with orders and giveaways is an excellent idea!


So hope I win because I just started my own photography business and would LOVE to have some proffesional looking business cards! Thanks for sharing

I’m building a new website under my own domain instead of blogger. So I need updated business cards. Yours look great!

I would love to win some fun, new business cards! I could use some that would work for both my blog and etsy shop!


I am planning on starting a new business!


I would love to win some of these adorable business cards! I have never had business cards and have recently decided that I need them! These would be perfect!

I’m looking for new business cards to change up what I already have. I’d love make mine a little more special.


I adore all sorts of custom cards. I love your posts you do about them occasionally. I’d love some eye catching, fun cards to promote my social media biz 🙂

Just getting my Scottish shortbread company up & running. Getting busier by the day. I would LOVE to have some really creative cards made for an upcoming Food & Wine Festival we were invited to participate in!

I made the mistake of ordering 1000 business cards last time and I’m SO TIRED of them! I would love to have an excuse to redesign them!


I need new business cards because I’ll be attending Art is You… this fall and I’d like to give out something more artistic than my usual cards.
