UPrinting Business Cards Giveaway

Update 09/30/11:
Contest Closed
Click here for winner.

When I posted about business card holders, a few of you expressed that you wanted to make business cards for you blog. I thought it'd be fun to have a giveaway so I contacted UPrinting to ask them to sponsor a giveaway of their business cards and they agreed!

UPrinting is an online printing company that provides good quality business card printing and business card design services.

I used UPrinting for my promotional and public relation blog cards. I love that UPrinting gives me the option to print in the front and in the back of the cards.

I wanted the back of this card to look like the back of a polaroid shot. To insure that this effect was achieved without any bleeds or cut-offs, I ordered a free proof. After receiving the proof, via e-mail, I called the UPrinting team to discuss technical details and adjustments I wanted done to the card. They were so helpful in noting exactly what I wanted so the folks from preprinting would get it just right.

The cards I ordered are 14pt, card stock, gloss giving them a nice thickness and appearance. 

For the back of the PR cards, I used a photo of the beach I took while we went to Ft. Myers Beach this summer. I used Photoshop to layer a photograph of the heart-shaped rock (which I found in Miami Beach a couple of summers ago) that I use in my header. 

Don't have a blog or business to promote? How about calling cards or mommy cards?

These look so cute! The last two shots are the card right? What are the first 2 shots? I'm confusing myself again :)

Your cards are excellent. :)

I do need to get some more cards! I either gave mine all away or misplaced them. Heh.

I love that you found a heart-shaped rock. I have found little shells with holes in them, around the state, that are perfect for making necklaces with for a surfy look.

I have wanted blog cards for ages now and keep missing out on entering the giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity! I love your card design. It's awesome!
Thanks for the tips on how to work with the company to design a card. I would never have thought of that.
