UPrinting Business Card Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED


Even though I'm a 20 year old chronically ill woman, I've managed to do quite a lot with what has been given to me in the past 6 years I've been sick-This includes creating a whole jewelry design business, opening up not one, but TWO stores on Etsy, starting and maintaining a successful blog and much more (not to brag our anything...)!

On a somewhat on-but-off topic, it's amazing what you can do with 24 hours of free time 7 days a week for 40 weeks O.O


But I digress.

Being a business owner, there are many things you have to take into consideration-For one, your merchandise. For two, your customers. For two to be completely satisfied, you have to give your absolute best with number one; When you've done your absolute best, go a step above and beyond. This is what gets you noticed from the rest of the 'pack,' and what also brings people back- Maybe even referring you to their family and friends ;)

What above-and-beyond step is up to you, but there is always something you must remember when it comes to owning and maintaining a business...

Business cards are a MUST!

Hence, today's featured company, UPrinting.com; You may have heard about them around here before (their badge is currently on my left hand sidebar), but I would love to bring them to attention yet again.

Here is a little about UPrinting.com from their website:

"For over 25 years, UPrinting has been a trusted leader in online printing, featuring its signature easy-to-use website and the famous Free File Review, a complimentary proofing service which requires no upfront payment. UPrinting offers convenient marketing support services such as design, lists, and direct mailing to help grow small and medium-size businesses nationwide."

Recently, UPrinting has come out with a program that is geared toward helping different bloggers in the blogging community-The UPrinting Sponsorship Program helps bloggers by providing them with unique feature, review and giveaway opportunities, as well as other much appreciated things like their monthly badge draw and much more!

Go ahead and check out their Business Card Page-You can learn and preview anything you need to know before purchasing your cards :)

I have a ceramic studio in which I'm creating my inventory and taking personal orders to start my business. But word of mouth and E-mails just aren't enough and I don't have a penny to spare right now. This would me a great launch pad for me to hopefully become an independent career artist!

I just opened a little shop in my small home town, and I'd give them to my customers - even the ones who don't buy anything! :)

tesashel said...

At their web site I learned you can get a free proof before you pay

tesashel said...

I also learned at their web site that they have operators that you can call LIVE to talk to if you have a problem.

I'd get the slimline card, and I'd put all my personal contact information (email, URL, facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc.) on one side, and all hubby's info on the other. It sure beats writing my personal email on my business card or scribbling it on a napkin.

Auriette said...

Another item I'd like to order from Uprinting is a vinyl banner. My mom lives just off a major street, and she wants to start having some craft sales. One of those banners on the fence facing the road would make sure that hundreds, if not thousands of people know that she's open for business.
