Giveaway & Review: 500 Custom Printed Business Cards [CLOSED]

I know I have brought several Uprinting custom print online products to my readers in the past, but I have never shared some of the products I have personally received from this online printing company. One of the products I am most happy with are my two-sided business cards.

These are my cards pictured below. I designed them myself and was very glad to see that the colors stayed true to the original design. Also, the printing is very crisp. I opted for the 14 pt gloss cardstock and am extremely pleased with my choice. My cards look and feel top notch.


My cousin just started her own law firm and asked me whether I think it is better to order business cards online or locally. I recommended Uprinting to her. I did so, not because I have received free custom printed products from this company in the past, but because I have received custom printed products from this company that I have been absolutely thrilled with. This was not the case with another popular online printing company, who made two attempts at my order and still failed to print my business cards centered as shown in the proof they had sent me.

Other products I've received from Uprinting that truly impressed me are a custom vinyl banner with metal grommets for hanging (which turned out beautifully), a poster-size photo enlargement, and a photo reproduced on canvas. Those are only a small minute fraction of the services this website offers. To view the full list of custom printing services, visit Uprinting.com .
