postcard giveaway

Wild Olive cards, tags, etc...

A few years ago, I had 3000 of these little cards/tags printed. Yes, really. The reason was that I had different plans for my shop then than I do now, and the cost of printing this many was so low. Fast forward to now, and I probably still have 2700 of these, and am looking for creative ways to use them. (I am determined that they will not go to waste!)

But that's not the point of this. The point is that I bought 3000 of these, the quality was excellent, and the cost was amazing. Because of this, UPrinting.com is my favorite place to refer folks to, and I was completely delighted to receive an email from them offering to do a giveaway for my readers!

This is the first time that I've accepted the offer from a large company to do a giveaway. And it's because I really want someone to get a chance to try their wonderful services!


UPrinting.com is giving away some of their postcards today. These would make excellent prints, handouts at a craft show, or I even sent out postcards last year for Christmas! Here are the details of the prize:

100 Postcards for One (1) Winner
5" x 7"
14pt Cardstock Gloss
No Folding
Front Only Printing
2 Business Days Print Turnaround Time

This is a short giveaway, so quick! Leave a comment telling what you'd use the postcards for, and make sure I have a way to contact you. I'll choose a random winner at NOON CST on Tuesday, August 23, and will need to hear from the winner within 24 hours.

This giveaway is sponsored by UPrinting, an online printing company, no monetary compensation was given and I will receive postcards for hosting. See more information about postcard design and other postcard templates on UPrinting.com.

    Blessings,

    P.S. I had an idea for how you could use some of those business cards! You could paint and stencil/stamp them to turn them into gift tags! All you would need is a hole-punch, a bit of yarn or ribbon, paint, pencils, maybe an ink pad, rubber stamps, and a mind full of creative ideas. Once decorated you could have a life-time supply of gift tags or they could be a great gift to any hosts who host parties/gatherings in their home. (They could even be sold or given simply as "just because" gifts!) Just a few ideas. =)

  43. What a great giveaway! I would use the postcards to announce an upcoming change in our lives--we're adding a member to our family! Our extended family live all over the place so a nice high quality postcard is a way to draw all of them into what God is doing in our lives. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  46. As a teacher, one of my goals this year is to make more positive contacts with parents. Just the other day, at the conclusion of a summer book study, I commented on how postcards could be the way to go so, after a small investment in post card stamps, I would use them to send positive notes home to my students. I should have about 100 students this year, so it would be perfect!

This would really give me the gigantic push that I need! =D
