Giveaway: Win a Pack of 250 Recycled Business Cards from UPrinting

This is a giveaway from our partners at UPrinting. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the trickiest parts of running a crafty business is finding eco-friendly promotional materials that are within your budget. That’s why I was super excited when UPrinting – the sponsors of this giveaway – approached us about their eco-friendlier business cards printing by UPrinting. UPrinting uses soy-based inks and 55 percent recycled paper in their business cards, and they’re offering up a pack of 250 cards with free shipping to one lucky Crafting a Green World reader!

Ready to enter? Here are the giveaway deets!

How to Enter

Remember to leave a separate comment for each entry, so that we can count them all!!

  • Leave a comment here letting us know what you’d use the business cards for.
  • Follow us on Facebook or on Twitter and let us know with a comment here. If you already follow us, that counts, too!
  • Follow UPrinting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+, and let us know with a comment here.

You can do one or multiple entries, and each one gets you your name in the hat. Just leave a separate comment here on the giveaway post for each entry to make sure they all get counted.

Prize Details

One winner will receive 250 die-cut business cards. There is a 6 business day turnaround on these cards, and they’re asking that we limit entries to U.S. residents only. Check out the options to choose from below!

Sizes and Design Options:

  • 2 x 3.5″ Rounded Corners, 2×2″ Rounded Corners, 1.75×3.5″ Rounded Corners, 2×3.5″ Leaf, 2×3.5
  • Rounded one corner, 2×3.5″ Half Circle Side, 2×3.5″ Oval, 2.5″ Circle

Paper Options:

  • 14pt Cardstock Gloss / Matte / High Gloss (UV), or 13pt Cardstock Uncoated
  • Front and Back Printing

As far as the paper options go, the uncoated cardstock is probably your greenest option, since when paper is coated, generally the shiny coating is plastic.

Thanks so much to UPrinting for sponsoring this giveaway! We will choose and announce a winner this coming Wednesday, September 12th.

  • Mary West

    Just beginning my upcycled crafts business and I only want to use recycled cards. What’s the point of asking folks to buy your recycled/upcyled crafts and then waste paper on glossy, looks-like-everyone-else’s cards? Live the change you want to see.

  • Suzanne

    I would use the cards to put a face to my crafty bits so they can be marketed to be sold. It would be a huge step forward towards making my creations into a business.

  • carrie

    I’d use the cards to promote my etsy store!

  • Sarah McAfoose

    Hey there!

    I have followed both you and UPrinting on Facebook. :)

    I would use the business cards for networking. I am a brand-spankin’ new professional (degree LITERALLY hot off the presses) and I’m currently trying to find that first full-time position in the Library Science field. Having cards that can both represent me well as as an upcycler and a crafter will be a conversation starter with colleagues, and perhaps give me that litttttttttle bit of edge I need to break through!

  • Lisa

    Being a natural wellness~healing arts practitioner I focus on eco-conscious business materials. I would use the cards for my personal business and they would also be attached to the herbal products that are created from local, ethically wildcrafted plants.

    I am running out of business cards; I just made a new design AND I am looking for a green company! Fabulous timing, I could use them for my markets and shows :)
    That way I could “test” Uprinting first and then later order more from them, I am going through 250 pretty quick!

    I liked you on facebook and twitter a while ago and just liked / followed UPrinting on FB and twitter.

    Thanks for the giveaway,

    I would use the cards for my blog. I used to have a home-based business (with business cards) but closed it last summer and haven’t gotten around to doing real (not home printed) cards for my blog yet.
