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…

Oh my goodness, this would be PERFECT! I’ve been shopping around for business/calling cards for months, still waiting to settle on my favorite and the BEST design for me. I’ve always been a blogger, but have just recently really upgraded to a new blog design, weekly intense networking online, and that kinda stuff. So I would LOVE cards to be able to get my blog out there even more, to advertise, that sort of a thing. I would love this!! Thanks! xoxo

I NEED NEW BUSINESS CARDS! Okay, trying to calm down now. I just redesigned my blog and I have a bunch of old business cards left over that I don’t want to use anymore. I’d love to win a new set!


I would LOVE to have new business cards, as mine are outdated (with an old website listed) and I could truly use a design pick-me-up!! Marketing for music therapy is incredibly important, as many have not heard of my profession. Having brand spanking new business cards would help immensely!!


Great giveaway! I’d love cards for my blog!


My sister is starting a job search now that she’s done student teaching! I would have these made for her!

My current business cards are so plain and boring. I would love something unique and fun that showcases my personality, but I just don’t know where to start! I would love to win new creative cards so that in addition to making a good impression, I could leave one behind as well.


I just started an arts blog last month and am about to start school for a degree in graphic design, I would love to use these to gain more readership for my blog and highlight my jewelry business!

Ohhh, I would LOVE new die cut business cards. I am in the process of launching my freelance graphic design website so this would be perfect timing! Thanks!
