Giveaway: Cards to Pimp Yo-Self!

OK, peeps - DON'T click away because you saw this is a giveaway, because I only chose it with you in mind.
I know there are a few of you out there like me:  trying to get a design or other small business off the ground.  Trouble is, it can get pricey to get started, and get yourself out there.  One thing you need is business cards - DUH!
Even if you're not starting a fledgling business, there's good reason to have calling cards/Mommy cards, whatever you wanna call them on hand with your important contact info.

Needing Cards + Saving Cash = This Giveaway

123Print has offered $500 worth of Office Supplies to one lucky MLHP reader.  The choices range from business cards to address labels to magnetic save the date cards (hello, Brides-to-Be!)

Here's a few I would consider: 

For the chevron luvahs out there....the cards are customizable - I'd lose the fleur de lis (just sayin')
A clean, modern look...

Sweet Mommy calling card...
Pretty Save the Date magnet...
You get the idea - TONS of designs to choose from.  (I could've played around with this all day!)

To register, leave a comment saying what you'd use the supplies for.  Be even cooler and say what design you'd pick! If you're really awesome, tweet about it, mention in a post, etc.  Comments will be open until midnight next Thursday, April 26th.
I'll pick a winner based on the best idea/planned use on Friday, April 27thBe sure to leave an email where I can contact you, and Good Luck!

Wow!!! $500???? That's kinda crazy big, exciting!!! Completely. :) I could totally use some magnetic business cards to get my lil photography business going. AND...some stationary to write thank you notes to my new clients. I love that you can upload your own design to the business cards and I would use a picture of my stunning red headed daugher. Thanks for this awesome opportunity. Have a blessed day!!!!

Love, Meli

Of course! Sign me up, they are so pretty. I'd take any of the ones you put up!

I know EXACTLY what I want! For years and years (since I was actually quite young) I wanted my own stationary! I used to draw my own logo when playing "office" at my parents disk.. later on I went on to designing a royal-looking monogram for both me and my boyfriend (want to call him my man since we've been together for 11years now ha ha)! I even designed a beautiful wedding invitation with a personalized monogram for my best friends wedding last year (fun fact; the invites were printed in Vietnam, and just last month a friend of the bride saw that my design was being sold to other couples-to-be with THEIR monogram "C&L" on it ha ha)! I waaaant my own stationary now - need it like really bad!! It would be off-white, thick paper with a dark grey monogram on top in the center; simple and b.e.a.u.tiful!

Best,
Sandra

So timely...As I have been looking through cards lately...I work with moms...lots of moms...As a Lactation Consultant a Midwives Assistant, A Doula and a Childbirth Educator. I work with many that I donate my work to...Frankly, most. I am lucky to have grants that sponsor my work, but funding is thin. So...HAPPY to have my name in the pot!

I have always dreamed of having personalized calling cards but always struggled with deciding on just the right design. I love the options that 123Print offers and I think I just might know the perfect one I'd choose!
Fingers crossed to win! Thanks so much!

Whoa! $500??? That's crazy! I'd go for the chevron cards... but, obvs, the fleur de lis would have to go.

ruthie said...

I'll give it a shot! $500 is a huge amount.

carrie2 said...

Wow these are beautiful, and I really need some new thank you cards as well as calling cards.

My Crafty Home Life said...

Oh, I just LOVE a giveaway! This is easy, I would choose the magnets " save the date", only I would let my 14 year old design Babysitting/Tutoring magnets on the Cherry Blossom design. That way, I could get her to start saving for her college.

Megan said...

What an amazing giveaway! These would be so useful, I am considering starting my own business and these would go so far in looking professional. Thank you for the chance to win!

jenn said...

Wow really!?! This is such a great giveaway and I'm so excited about it! I really love the business card you featured above with the small orange circles on it. I am working in early intervention to help families with infants and toddlers that are behind in their development. This giveaway would jumpstart my dream to start a business with my sister-in-law. Thanks for putting my name in the hat!

Heather Spears Kallus said...

Ooooh!! (rubs hands together excitedly) Five-hundred daaah-luhs!! Really?! I don't make that in a whole year (well, being a stay-at-home mom and all...) I would love to enter your giveaway - count me in! One, because it's just fantabulous and two, because my daughters keep taking any and all cute cards, stationery, envelopes and anything resembling paper and using it to play school, office and do artwork on. Soooo.....I would possibly use the moo-lah to do little cards to share my new blog OR to finally have a secret stash of personalized notecards that WILL be under lock and key in a super duper ooper secret location. Thanks for the opportunity, Alison!

Oh my goodness. Seriously would love this. I'm trying to get things moving with a few design ideas of my own.

Megan said...

I would use the notecards for 'thank yous' for my baby shower gifts.

Melissa said...

I would love to have some modern business cards!

caroline ittner said...

i love the save the date option!

Michelle said...

I could use QUITE a few things with that money :)

JenniferAStreet said...

Wow.. I could do so much. I first off would get the invites/save the dates and thank yous for my sister's upcoming wedding. And I think we'd use the Peacock Plume design.. If there was anything left I'd make some blog contact cards for myself in one of those abstract looking prints.. or I'd upload my blog graphic. how much fun!

i know i already left a comment and it is after midnight (but not where i live hahaha) but i figured some business card would not cost $500 so with the rest of the money i would get my sister and i matching memo pads. She is serving a mission for our church and i dont get to see or talk to her for 18 months :( all we get to do is write. she is my only sister and we are best friends i think we need matching secret sister memo pads!!!

My 13 year old daughter has started a little business of sewing greeting cards. She's sold them to family and friends, but it'd be so great to give her the means to learn how to promote her own business through designing/ordering/using business cards. And of course, I'd let her do the choosing... :) Thanks for this opportunity!
