Business Card Give-Away: A Must-Have for Moms, Business Owners and Bloggers

Wednesday, October 07, 2009


Prior to becoming a "blogger", I wanted "cards" to hand out when I meet other moms. I thought it would be a great way to keep in touch with the moms I met at the park, playdates or library - rather than searching for a pen and scrap of paper that I would inevitably lose the next time I cleaned out the diaper bag.

As the owner of the Mom Buzz (and a mom blogger), the value in the business card is to introduce other people to my site and network with other site owners.

And for all of you who run small shops on Etsy or your own site, you MUST have a business card to help promote sales and introduce people to your products and yourself.

There are some places that promise cheap or free business cards - but be wary. Google their company name and SCAM and see how many complaints you come across. I know it has made me wary.


I have heard great things from people who have bought business cards printing from the Online Printing Company UPrinting ... and UPrinting wants one lucky Mom Buzz reader to experience the benefits themselves! You can choose from various sizes, even custom. Youc an choose from three card stocks, including matte, glossy or uncoated. You can even to choose to have full color on the front only, full color on front and black back or full color on both sides! Prices start as low as $15.03 for 250 cards.

Designing seems simple. Either choose from a template - great for non tech savvy peeps - or design your own! That's probably the route most bloggers would choose! Either way, I am excited to get my next batch of cards from UPrinting with that Mom Buzz logo! Full color both sides is my choice.


Giveaway Prize:
250 business cards for One  Lucky Winner (Free UPS Ground Shipping in USA)
Sizes:  2 x 3.5”, 2 x 3”, 2 x 2” (square card) or 1.5 x 3.5” (skinny card)
Paper:  14 pt gloss cardstock, 14 pt matte cardstock or 13 pt recycled uncoated cardstock

    I would actually make some business cards promoting the local moms group that I "founded" so that we could reach out to more community moms and have more events for the kids. Thanks for the chance to win!

    You did not mention it, but this company has been providing cards as prizes for some time, and usually requires that the winner pay shipping. Noticed today that only Canadian winners would have to do that in the latest info on another site--is that true through this giveaway as well? Still a very good deal. Would give them to my grandson for his handyman business if I were to win.
