Giveaway! 250 Business Cards!

Summer's almost here! How are you feeling about it? I love the time I get to spend with my kids, but hate how my writing time seems to diminish. I just have to keep doing the balance chant and maybe one day it will work.

Until then, I've got some good news...no I don't have an agent yet. The good news is for you!

A GIVEAWAY!

I've been blabbing about doing one since my birthday in March, but a major case of slackeritus got the best of me.

Until PrintRunner came to my rescue offering to give me and a winner 250 business cards each.

This offer came about during the writer's conference I attended a couple of weeks ago. Any writer who has been to a conference knows how great it is to have a handy dandy business card available to pass around.

-Open to US residents only, ages 18 years old and up.

-You don't have to, but it would be nice if you followed PrintRunner on Twitter and liked them on Facebook.

Why I could use some business cards:

Because I ran out much sooner than expected and have several promotional events coming up wherein they would come in GREAT-HANDY, so-to-speak!

I want to enter! I need some writer business cards. I have photog ones, but ugh, I don't even know what should go on a writer one.

I'm Erin.
My email address is one you have.
And that was my reason I need some.

Why could I use some business cards: I ran out of the last ones I had. Made those myself. They were, um, okay but to have some professionally done would be awesome.

Jessie Humphries said...

I just had to leave about 1,000 business cards behind when I quit my lawyer job last week. Those poor cards didnt even do anything wrong!!!

Donna K. Weaver said...

This is a great idea. I have business cards but keep forgetting to give them out. How dumb is that?

Sharon Bayliss said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I don't know if I'd use them, so I'll pass on entering, but I'll spread the word!

Jenny Morris said...

This is a really cool giveaway. I don't think I would use the cards just yet, so I'm not entering. But this is awesome!!

Cassie Mae said...

Oh! I love business cards! They are so fun to whip out when someone asks if you have a piece of paper to write on. "Why, here's my card. My number's right there."

Hehe!

That's my reason for wanting them, but I have no idea what I'd put on it, except for Cassie Mae, Head Harry Potter Nerd and Occasional Writer.

Leslie Rose said...

Very cool and practical giveaway. Count me in.

I am in need of a professional business card intervention. Every time I put the blank do-it-yourself biz card sheet in my printer either 1/3 of the top or the bottom of the design doesn't seem to make it onto the card. Alas.

Jeff Hargett said...

I don't normally enter contests, but seeing as how I'm attending my first ever writing workshop next month (Orson Scott Card's) having business cards on hand would seem prudent, so...

And thanks for the opportunity!

Tara Tyler said...

I could use some b/c I ran out of my last ones and I'd made them myself and can't print any more right now b/c my printer is outta commission:(

Business cards are awesome! Just FYI, Vista Print also offers 250 free business cards as an intro offer, and you don't have to enter a contest. :)

Jessica L. Foster said...

Business cards are essential in this writing world. Good luck to those who enter.

Shallee said...

What a great giveaway! I have business cards already, so I won't enter, but I think this is an awesome idea. Hope you enjoy your summer!

Kim Van Sickler said...

Wonderful and useful idea! I crafted some cheapo business cards through Vista Print when I first decided to write a book (cards are free and you only pay for shipping) and I loved the title I came up with so much and was so convinced that the book would be published that I printed the title on the cards.

Needless to say, as time passed and I became wiser, and edits inevitably occurred, it turned out to be a really bad idea. The story's been reconstructed and the title changed, so those cards are advertising something that never will be.

They have laid out some pretty hefty suspensions and fines in this case, and once this gets in the courtroom the real facts will have to be presented.
