Being a stationery addict and a lover of all things personalised it’s a bit of a no-brainer that I love business cards. Is that a weird thing to say? I’ve been ordering business cards for a long old time; for a photography website I once had, to send with letters to penpals, to use as gift tags for birthday presents, to adorn homemade foodie presents and more recently, for my blog. You might not see yourself as the networking type but if you’re out and about photographing things I find it a useful thing to have in your bag for when a shop or restaurant owner raises an inquisitive eyebrow at you producing your SLR. It gives you a bit of kudos and it’s a great conversation starter, plus they can check out your post featuring their shop/stall/restaurant and spread the word about your little corner of the internet! Plus they’re great for blogger meets or any other social schmoozing you might do!
I was recently contacted by Best British Bloggers on behalf of InstantPrint who kindly wanted to give me a set of 1000 business cards. I jumped at the chance, used some graphics from my blog design to whip up a quick design and they arrived within two days of me sending it over! They are really thick and sturdy with a beautiful matt finish and I’m pleased as punch with them!
The exciting news is you can win one of four sets of 1000 business cards for yourself! They don’t necessarily have to be for your blog, they can be for any project or venture you have, you just have to be able to submit a design and they’ll wing their way to you.
How it works
If you win, you’ll be given a template for design of the cards depending on what program you use (Publisher, Illustrator, Photoshop or In Design).
You’ll also be given contact details of Instantprint where you’ll email your design.
You can pick from matt or gloss finish.
How to enter
You can enter using the Rafflecopter widget below, and you can enter via whatever method you like, none are mandatory. The competition closes at midnight on 31 January and I’ll announce the four winners on Twitter as well as displaying them on this blog post. Good luck!
