UPrinting.com Can't Stop Giving Stuff Away!

UPrinting.com has another excellent giveaway for you! I say it's excellent, because I used Uprinting.com to create my business cards for the BlogHer '09 conference in Chicago, and they turned out beautifully. Because the card stock was quite thick and I had opted for a matte coating, they looked professional and received some fairly positive reviews when I was at the conference. When I do eventually order a new set of cards, though, I think I'm going to spring for the die cut business cards, because it's such a pleasing little design feature.

Here's the front of my business card:

And here's the back:

I have two sets of 500 business cards to give away to you, and you're going to like them, because you've actually got options. I know! A giveaway with options! If you are lucky enough to win, you can choose from the following options to create your cards:

business card sizes

can be 2x3.5", 2x3", or 2x2".

the paper can be either 14pt matte- or gloss-coated cardstock or 13 pt uncoated cardstock.

colour can be (4/4) colour on both sides, (4/1) colour on one side / black and white on the backside, or (4/0) colour on one side / black on the backside.

I've been thinking of having a second set made up to use as tags for the items I sell in my Etsy shop. What will you use them for?

UPDATE:Sue and megscreations are the two winners, each receiving a set of 500 business cards! I have my own set from UPrinting.com, and they do good work. Congratulations!
