    Hmm, I think I’ll use the cards to showcase the popular destinations that my travel company can take clients to. So they’d be like business cards slash post cards. 🙂

  2. Go Harry Go says:

    Happy New Year, Lakeshore Branding!!!

    I have tons of social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. So if I win the cards I’ll use ’em to share all my online/social URLs to people I meet offline. (If I do manage to get off the chaise lounge.)

  3. B.Logan says:

    Ooh… a contest… Might give away the cards whenever I attend summits and conferences. Best way to spread the word about my work… 🙂

  4. Nikki Stewart says:

    If I win, I will distribute the cards in various reading events, book fairs, art exhibits, festivals, and other in-store events — to promote Bookmans and get more people to visit our used book store. 🙂

  5. Andi Luther-Philippe says:

    I would love to give UPrinting’s business cards a spin! In the last two weeks I have started my own handmade, artisan soap company. I would use the business cards at my craft shows, and pack them into people’s packages who order online.

  6. SmallBiz Sue says:

    I will give away the cards to all potential customers I meet, and hopefully that’ll generate some buzz about my new small business on arts and crafts. Happy New Year, Lakeshore Branding guys!

  8. Courtney @centsablelady says:

    I would use these business cards for my blog as part of my networking plan for the New Year! I think I should win so that I can tell my readers about them. I would use this as an opportunity to use my affiliate link 🙂 I would of course link back to you and thank you for the giveaway!

    I would promote my fiber works and upcycled items with a personal unique business card. It will make me look more professional and clever. Many a time I could have given one out when talking about my art work. Thanks for the giveaway chance!!
