This is a follow up to my post about offline blog promotion ideas. In that post, I told you to make some business cards because it’s a great promotional tool and helps to legitimize your blog and build your brand. I get my business cards from Unico Print Media. They charge $85 for 1,000 double sided full color cards (it’s also waterproof).
Recently, Greg Morgan pointed me to a deal from VistaPrint. They are offering 250 free full color business cards (you just have to pay shipping). The service allows you to design, proof and order you business cards online. I would imagine somewhere during the process there will be an upsell attempt. For example, the free cards offer has 42 background designs to choose from. If you don’t like any of them, you have to pay $14.99 to see hundreds more. This is what I came up with using the completely free service.
I think I will stick with my Unico business cards for now. However, the VistaPrint offer is great if you’re looking for some free business cards to promote your blog. If you don’t need business cards, VisitaPrint also offers a free rubber stamp, personalized notepad or 100 postcards.
