Giveaway: Business Cards

Summer was here for a few days!  Then it went away again.  But maybe it’ll come back in time for the county fair?

One of my favorite things to do at fairs and exhibit shows is drop business cards into all the fish bowls or buckets or whatever the gift drawing entries are being collected in.  One year I won three very cool exhibitor gifts in one show!

Yes, I am very good at using up business cards.  Inserting them in all the magazines at the laundromat or doctor’s office, passing them out at Halloween along with the candy, just having them available when someone needs a scrap of notepaper, etc.

Seriously, despite all the technology trends, printed business cards remain the most effective way of distributing important contact information.

Even if you don’t have a business to promote, it’s nice to have an easy way to give your contact info, blog address, family photo, motivational quote, maybe even church info, to people you meet.

So of course, I’m needing a good supply of business cards.  And Digital Room has a variety of options available.  If you don’t already have a design, it’s easy to use their online design templates.
I love the die cut business cards – with rounded corners, leaf, or half-circle cards.  You can stick with a standard size (important for people who collect business cards…) and still have something unique.

And Digital Room is sponsoring a giveaway prize for one of you! 

Giveaway Prize:
  • 500 Premium Business Cards   
  • 2 x 3.5”, 2 x 2” (square card) or 1.75 x 3.5” (slim card)   
  • 14 pt gloss cardstock, 14 pt matte cardstock or 13 pt recycled uncoated cardstock   
  • Full Color Both Sides
  • Limited to US residents; 18 years old and above
To Enter:

Just leave a comment on this post telling how you would use these cards.  Make sure I have a way to contact you via email.

Winner will be randomly chosen 6/25.

I have never thought about a family information/business card that is a great idea. So many times I am trying to find a piece of paper to scribble my info on to give to someone I haven't seen in forever... and it either goes undone or it's just sloppy. If I won that is what I would do... keep some of these cards in my wallet to make those moments a whole lot easier.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of just dish out all at once staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to free lay stress and decent deem fro nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've eternally sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most pleased when I found the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Manifest Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the Toys section. It's like a tuneful caddy, a spinning head, and a light show all rolled into one. Which is great entertainment! The gyroscope will concoct for around a minute. The laser slight show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty unequalled bauble that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful eccentric around the laser gyroscope I got from They evermore follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser insight boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but virtuous keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused next to it. Off it's moral to possess entertaining toys around the ancestry so that you can desert the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to fit out scoff or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a gegenschein exposition with red, obscene, and green colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but decorous plenty to consider any supplementary customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look exceedingly cool, and to some masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music flare show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the b & b latitude with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser torchlight register produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a rather mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my oversight shopping site in return all gifts and ideas in support of romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp show gyroscope can maybe be a great Christmas gift looking for the toddler or methodical the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a polite summation to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests hit town in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business still again!
