    Excellent! I would use the business cards to promote myself and my business in web design, and/or as an artist. Having business cards is just not something I’ve done yet. Thanks Selene! :D

  • Brian Foltz

    Awesome little contest you’re having. Being graduated from college I haven’t had time to put together anything for a business card. So, this would be a great start to get my freelancing move going.

  • http://ertw.com/blog/ Sean

    I would use them to promote my site/service that I’m going to launch.

    Will you throw in a free design by you? :D I’d use the free business cards for my online business when I send mail or I’m out networking. Thanks, Selene!

    No doubt, having a business card, is to promote my business. However, other than that, I will also use this eco-friendly business card to promote and encourage my client to use eco-friendly material for their future printing. Actually, I myself is also serving a few clients who is doing eco-friendly business, like http://www.linkskin.com. Their eyewear is 100% using recycle material, and they even have their own full cycle recycling system. Thus, I hope that we can start being friendly to the earth start by ourself.

    I love the idea of eco-friendly anything. With my art I try to encourage composting, reusing, consideration of non-disposable products…an eco friendly business card would help me to carry forth this message.

    Thanks

    We have a terrific student employee on staff here where I work in instructional technology. She’s done some amazing work helping to setup our university-wide WPMU blog pilot. Specifically, she’s been writing a comprehensive tutorial for our faculty on getting started with Web 2.0 technologies like WP, Facebook, Twitter, et al.

    For awhile, we’ve been calling her our “Emerging Professional Blogger” given her enthusiasm and creative ideas. One day, I joked that I should have business cards made for her with “[her name], Professional Blogger” on the front, and her various networks and contact info on the back. Lately, I’ve been seriously considering getting her some cards, so I was excited when I saw this posting for eco-friendly cards. She’d be thrilled to not only have some rock-star biz cards, but also that they were reflective of her environmental consciousness.

    Thanks!

    My fiancée and I are about to start a new business with services that include brand identity, website and print creation, as well as soft- and hard-cover wedding invitations.

    And having an eco-friendly business card is a great way to stand out in this green-minded city of Montreal.

    Hello,

    I would definitely use them to promote my business, since I just started freelancing. Thanks again for the giveaway! Fingers crossed…

  • Mihla

    What great timing! I am preparing to launch a new business and decided to go green. I just signed up with a green Web host and BizCard’s eco-friendly printing services are just what I need.

  • dragyn

    I would use these business cards to promote myself as an eco-friendly person that is into using green products for designs. There are so many companies going green these days and I would like to show employers that I am on board the green train.

    I would love to use some new cards to promote the free content at my site.

    I really need some cards,honey.

  • http://www.chenjidesigns.com suresh chenji

    I would use the card for my Freelance graphic design biz which I am planning to start in couple of months

  • http://vladgeorgescu.com Vlad Georgescu

    What would I use them for? For shameless self promotion, of course! :D

  • http://seocontentsolutions.com Tara Geissinger

    I follow you on Twitter and saw this promotion. My business partner and I were just talking about attending some trade shows and conferences this year and realized we do not have any printed business cards! Just one of the perils of running a business entirely online! :-)

    If we happen to win the 500 cards, we will have them printed for ourselves. The fact that they are eco-friendly is a BIG PLUS!!!

    I’m working on a site redesign. A bc to match the new site would be great. Thanks for your postoings. Very informative :)

    Nothing new here. Self Promotion. I have a small biz that’s been running for a couple years, and I am really trying to drum up some new business, getting some new updated cards would be great.

  • http://variedthoughts.com Brian Okken

    Many intended uses: self promotion, bookmarks, teaching rectangle shapes to toddlers, dropping in fishbowls at restaurants to win free lunches, having something to hand back when someone hands me their business card, making my wallet thicker, small shim for wobbly table, …

    Hello Selene!
    Thanks for the giveaway…..and what great timing, too! My wife and I are in the process of launching our own small business, after being laid off from the real estate services industry over a year ago. We’re taking the plunge into self employment and could definitely make good use of the biz cards as we begin marketing ourselves and our services (concierge type support services to realtors, i.e. marketing, transactional and technology support). Keep up the great posts!!
    Cheers ~

  • Sheila

    Awesomeness! I need some business cards to promote myself. I usually print the business cards myself and the results aren’t so good.

  • http://www.myitwins.com Jocelyn French

    Oh what a fabulous giveaway! I was actually just business card printing/shopping tonight. I’m a Mommy Blogger who is attending a few conferences in the next few months and need these to to hand out/network with. This contest comes at a perfect time!

  • http://www.6435studios.com Michael Evans

    I need some new cards printed for my design services and some guilt free green cards sure sound nice!

  • http://kelliebrown.blogspot.com Kellie

    I have a green blog and a green business and desperately need business cards. Since they tend not to be the greenest thing ever, I’ve been putting this off for quite some time. I’d LOVE the opportunity to sample some green cards and practice what I preach! ;)

  • Eric

    Usual for me too. Self promotion. Custom cards would be great to separate me from the pack when looking for law internships and summer associate positions.

    Thanks for the great contest.

  • Mary Yeager

    I live in a very rural community that is just starting to see an uprising in computer use and the web as older generations are being replaced by tech savvy generations. Still tho, competition in my town is very word of mouth. Having business cards would be a great way to get my name out there as there is little actual web development companies in my area. There are so many places I could go with these business cards and truly launch my business. The cards being eco-friendly is just an added bonus to ice the cake.

  • http://lastwebdesigner.com Antonio

    I will use for my own business… ok .. better say : I would win this for use on my personal business.
    :D

  • http://iheartgreatdesign.blogspot.com Donna Vitan

    I’m definitely looking forward to putting my own identity package together finally and business cards are a very important part of that package! And what a bonus to have it be eco-friendly. Good luck all.

  • Dan Leatherman

    I want to use it to whore my web design skills!

    Hope I make it in time! Thanks for the giveaway, I’ll put them to good use if I win
