Giveaway! 100 customized postcards

Custom printed postcards have many uses. You can print photos of your family or a trip to send to friends and family. You can use them to market your business by sending them out to past customers to advertise a promotion or simply to say "thank you". They're also great for writing to pen pals all over the world to give them a view of real life in your area instead of just tourist attractions.

Because they are such a great marketing tool, many printing companies now offer postcard printing in addition to their usual business card and stationery printing.

If you want to try custom postcard printing and marketing for yourself but aren't sure if they're a good investment - or if you've already tried them and just want some freebies - you've come to the right place. I'm hosting a giveaway for 100 4x6 custom printed post cards. They will be on 14pt glossy cardstock with four colors (that's full color in the printing world) on both sides.

To enter, simply comment on this post and tell me what you would use the postcards for (or just give me a new usage idea, I love new ideas). The best answers will be entered into a draw on August 23rd because I'd never be able to just pick one.

Unfortunately, this giveaway is only available to U.S. residents 18 years or older. Sorry to my fellow Canadians, I'll try to make up for it soon!

Oh, and if you enter you might want to follow my blog. Otherwise you might miss the winners being announced.

  3. As I am a makeup artist, the postcards would make great comp(osition) cards.

  4. Usually I create my custom postcards at
    Why not be creative? I would make postcards that I need to match (not identically)some philatelic stamps. The result is a maximum card. See my websites for images/examples/comments.
    Anybody could and should express themselves, even amateurishly, thru some custom postcards, of various types. :)

  5. I would definitely use the cards for my new Macaroni Kid business... why? Because I'm a college freshman and honestly, I can't afford them on my own. :P

  6. I could use cards to promote my Etsy site..! Lots of cute kids decor items.. all handmade! Found you on Facebook.. I'll follow you.. please follow me back on my crazy crafting adventure.

  7. I would use the cards as teaching material for my sister. . .

    or put a little game like a labyrinth :)

  8. I would like to share my cards, so I would be creative.

    I would like to have them for swaps or to give to friends, just because I love them.

    What I would have printed, would be something my imagination would make up and go from there.

    It could be a deer/fawn and and/or some of my favorite hobbies.

    What I have in mind is one of my favorite fawn photos with 'fabric and embroidery and crochet, like a crazy quilt.

    With the words along the lines of "I love you" or "For my friend".

    I do have an etsy store and an ebay selling ID, but I would not like to advertise with this, To me this give away seems along the lines of giving something back to others, and that is what I would do.
