A product review and a giveaway- BuildASign business cards!



Recently, I received a set of lovely business cards from BuildASign

Founded in 2005, the Austin-based company (which also operates photos on canvas) is a custom printing company which provides customized signs and banners, car magnets, bumper stickers, decals, business cards, licence plates, parking signs and more.

Imagine how thrilled I was when I was offered a set of business cards from BuildASign in exchange for a review. I have always wanted to have my own business cards for my interior decorating business but I couldn't find the right ones. These are perfect because they can be customized exactly the way I wanted. I am so excited to share with you my new business cards! Here it is:



Here is how I customized my business cards: First, I made a slight change to my blog banner. Then, I uploaded the image to the website. Next, I determined my layout and favorite fonts. Finally, I checked the preview. 3 simple steps and voila, here's my new business cards! Easy peasy!


Close-up.

What do you think? Do you like my new business cards? I always knew I wanted my business cards to look like an extension of my blog and I am glad BuildASign made it happen. These cards are high quality and beautifully printed. Best of all, they are affordably priced. To give you an idea, a set of 100 business cards with a 2"x 3.5" size (matte) only costs $14.99 and the glossy version cost slightly more at $17.99. If you have looked or ordered any business cards before, you know the price is pretty unbelievable!

*I received this product to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

The best part? BuildASign has decided to offer one of you lucky Mix And Chic readers a chance to win 100 business cards. Customized or not, glossy or matte, it is your pick! 

If you are a small business owner (think Etsy store owners, designers, web designers, consultants, event planners, etc),  a mom who wants to give out your contact information to other mommies during your child's play date or simply a blogger who wishes to advertise your blog, then these cards are perfect for you!

  5. What a great design! I recently had cards designed to match my blog but I haven't had them printed anywhere? Does BuildASign do printing for already styled cards? Also, what do you think about the quality of the card stock your cards were printed on? They look absolutely fabulous in the photos! For me, I wanted cards just so I could spread the word about my blog (i'm not an interior designer) but I often find that I'm talking about the blog to people and they pull a scrap paper out to write the name down so they won't forget it. ha, I planned to use my cards for those occassions. Great post

  18. I followed Build a sign on twitter. BTW they are a great company. They give free signs away to military families of deployed loved ones. I received a great sign a couple years ago courtesy of them.

  19. I think I would choose glossy, I agree with the previous comment, it catches the eye. But then again a nice brightly colored matte may be the one too. hmmm. Ok glossy, bright and glossy.
