  • Aaron, February 9, 2010

    I would love to have a chance to win free business cards to boot my work out into the world more.

  • Steve Ritchie, February 9, 2010

    Well, having bought some from VistaPrint I need a good printer. Delivery was delayed, but got express delivery refund. Then when cards arrive they had not been printed properly.
    Half guide marks on bottom of cards, and reverse calendar not aligned correctly.
    Got refund again.
    They have no QA – all printed, cut and boxed automatically.
    What is uPrintings view of QA?
    Do they check anything before it goes out?!

  • Adam, February 9, 2010

    We are all about die cut business cards…. each business card we produce is considered and carefully considered, so production processes such as Die Cuts, Perforations, Metallics and UVs (which some call embellishments) are just part of the communication.

  • Ryan, March 7, 2010

    I got some business cards from Vistaprint and they promised me a $10 rebate that would be sent to me in 4-6 weeks. It’s been 6 months and still no voucher. I think I’ll take advantage of a deal like this next time I need business cards.

  • Tom Dempsey, March 10, 2010

    I never received the information on ordering (or the cards) after winning the last time. Now I noticed Design Daily is doing the same contest.

  • Vandelay Website Design, March 10, 2010

    If you never heard from UPrinting why didn’t you email me? I sent you and initial email on February 12th and said if you had any problems to email me.

  • Tom Dempsey, March 10, 2010

    I looked back and found the email from UPrinting – my apologies. I do not believe the business card order can use their templates but I am waiting for an email back for some direction.

  • Randy, March 31, 2011

    I’m broke, I could use some free business cards. They seem to make them thinner. Guess if I beg, I can’t choose. Someone, told me UPrinting, Vista,, and some new printer. All put their logos on the back of the free cards. I’m not sure, if I like that :(
