UPrinting Business Card Giveaway

November 23, 2008 Posted by Tyler Cruz

UPrinting.com approached me the other day and wanted to give away some free business cards to you guys. Of course, I’m always up for companies wanting to give me or my readers free stuff so I was quick to accept their offer.

UPrinting is giving away 250 business cards to 4 lucky TylerCruz.com readers. Submitting an entry for the competition is easy, and your chances of winning are probably pretty good since I’m assuming there won’t be many entries.

Any successful businessman will tell you how important it is to network, but what’s worse than getting yourself out there networking, only to have the people you spent telling your company to forget all about you the next day? Business cards are such a reminder and vital for proper networking and branding. If you don’t have any business cards yet, you should strongly consider getting some.

About UPrinting

2

UPrinting.com is a very established (25 years) company which provides online printing for various stationery and printed marketing material. They cover a lot of different types of printed mediums including business cards printing, brochures, calendars, letterheads, and postcards to name a few.

The Prizes

  • 4 winners will each receive 250 business cards.

You can choose from any of their stocks, including the eco-friendly SFI certified cover stock or the the 14 pt. family in Matte, AQ, or UV at any custom size we offer such as square cards, odd sizes or the standard size.

Winners in the United States and Canada qualify for free shipping. Shipping fees will apply to winners outside these areas.

3

Upload your own business card template, choose from a large number of pre-made templates, or create your own from scratch using their U-Design service and add your own logos and custom imagery.

How to Participate

All you need to do is record a video of yourself explaining why I should pick you as one of the 4 winners, and then upload it to the video sharing site of your choice (YouTube, Viddler, Etc.) and leave a comment on this post linking to the video.

Remember, most people are lazy and probably won’t enter, so your chances are most likely very good if you submit a video. I’m looking for creativeness, energy, and humour, so keep that in mind when making your video.

I’ll be posting all of the videos on my blog when I announce the winners in 5 days.

Deadline

9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific) Time  – November 28th, 2008

    Great contest. I would like to enter but don’t need to enter. I don’t have a business yet but want to get one started in ’09. After making a few this year I just hope I don’t get screwed on taxes next year.

  2. Sounds like a pretty cool contest. Dont have a video recording device though so im out of luck pretty much.

  3. You know what Tyler, you’re absolutely right. Most of us are lazy or don’t want to be in front of a camera :P

    Maybe if you only have 3 or so entries you should give multiple to me?
