    Just about to ‘go it alone’ in the scarey world of freelance website design . . . business cards would start me off with a bang ! =0)

    Business cards would be the perfect or right way for me to market my self with the people around me or I meet.

    Need > Want. I NEED the cards. My current cards have not been updated since 2004. Let’s just say it’s on my list of Things To Do When I Find Time.

    Oh … I NEED the canvas as well. I have several marketing events planned this year, which makes this a necessity as well.

    Remember, Need > Want.

    Business cards because my old ones matched the branding of my old blog design. I need to get new ones made up! Blog business cards are a much nicer touch than writing things down or typing it in your phone.

    I am a stay at home dad with my two year old son. I am starting a health supplements business and woud use the business cards for direct mail campaigns and getting my name out into the open.

    I’ve never had business cards before, and since I’ve finally picked a name to represent myself, it would be an opportune time. With a company that can print almost any design, I’d be able to use the Japanese characters and the colors that represent who I am and the fantastic work that I’ll be doing in the near future. It’s just the kick someone starting off needs; and since I’ll be moving soon (in the fall), I’ll be prepared to move my name around.

  12. 12

    I would print one of my best photos and hang it on my wall.
    It would be the first one ever!

  13. 13

    That’s a tough one. I’d take the business cards to promote my startup some more. They go pretty fast at events and just making small talk with someone.

    But the canvas…hmmm that would be awesome to have hanging in my apartment.

    Oh the decisions we have to make.

    I’m crossing my fingers 😉

  14. 14

    I really need new business cards – mine haven’t been updated in 5 years and a lot has changed since then. I’d print a family photo on the large canvas for my grandmother who can’t see things unless they’re huge.

  15. 15

    I would use the business cards for our online magazine that is just getting off the ground! it would be wonderful to have business cards to hand out!
    Great giveaway!

    I’d use the business cards for letting everyone know that yes, it is business time. Why do you think they call them business socks?

  17. 17

    Well, having just left my job in web development to pursue my dream of being a freelance designer (all in the middle of an economic crisis!) I need all the help I can get!

    No one knows who I am yet and people ask all the time for business cards and I shamefully say I don’t have any.

    I do a lot of artwork on the computer than print it on canvas, stretch it and sell it, so a free 18×24 would help immensely.

  18. 18

    I would use the cards for our creative arts ministry and community, the canvas would be used at our events t highlight the ministry website 🙂

  19. 19

    I have just opened a counseling and play therapy practice. I have a real office and everything! But, alas, I have nothing on the walls. Worse yet, I had to print my first round of business cards myself. How lame is that?? I would put both of these gifts to good use.

    Think of the children!

  20. 20

    I would use the business cards to print “you are beautiful”, with email and web address to give out to people to help them feel good… I would also do something similar with a canvas using gandhi’s words :…be change you wish to see in the world with a sunflower image (as supplied)

    loely idea, thanks

    PS I realsie being from O/S that postage would apply.

  21. 21

    I’d probably use the free business cards and canvas print to celebrate the birth of my new baby niece. A baby photo would look awesome on the canvas for her nursery and the cards could be personalized as little birth announcements. Please pick me!

  22. 22

    I have a new blog and I would love to have some business cards to use to promote it!

    I would also love to win the canvas print. I’d get a print made of my sister’s maple sugar house

    Thanks for the giveaways!

  23. 23

    I would use the business cards to give to other moms I meet, to spread my brand, and the canvas I would use to liven up my little excuse for a home office! LOL

  24. 24

    New designer stepping into the world, I need these business cards 🙂

    The canvas print would be use for auction with one of my design and donate the profit to a charity organization.

  25. 25

    I would LOVE to win one of these
    making a “business cards winning dance” right now!

  26. 26

    I’d love to win the business cards because my current cards are more formal and for hiring me, whereas I would like some with my social networking information on them to hand out to people I meet and would like to work with or just talk to.

    The canvas print would be nice such that I could have something interesting in my apartment, but I wouldn’t know what to put on it.

  28. 28

    This is a totally awesome give away! Thanks a gazillion. I would use the business cards/calling cards as a great conversations starter with local hotties..yeah!

    I would use the canvas to print an awesome piece of my 2 beautiful nieces. I really want to get hooked up on this one.

    I would pass my cards out to all the humans I meet at trail rides, campouts, and clinics. Wow… If they were impressed with my being on Twitter (@RainyTheHorse) and having a blog, imagine how blown away they’d be when I hand them my card!
    And the canvas print, of course, would be of my big, beautiful self. I’d let my human keep it in the house.

  31. 31

    This actually would be a GOD sent to win these cards! I am graduating from college on March 28th and have a portfolio review on March 26th where all the graduates get together and have tables set up to display their work and hand out their business cards/resumes. Even though this event is a month away I still haven’t had my business cards printed and really need to! So obviously, if I won these business cards I would use them for my portfolio review and continue to hand them out to prospective employers! I am just getting into freelance, so… PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pick me!

  32. 32

    I’d use the cards to stuff my wallet which has gotten pretty thin with the crisis and all. I’d also use them to promote my business and show my partner that I don’t need to wait for months until he decides to order them.

    Hey Andy! I would use cards to promote free music! I’d give them out to promote my music project, Ask You In Gray, which is an electronic-indie band! I’d LOVE to have a canvas print for printing some sweet illustrations that I do. So sweeeet!

    Oooo a contest I LOVE contests..never win ’em…but I still believe and hold out hope 😉

    Lost the 14 year+ job in Oct because of an economic layoff. The shock has worn off and I realize this is an opportunity to really grow the home business. So now that I am settled into my new home office I need both business cards AND art for my home office walls. So either prize would be perfect for me.

    OoOoOO pick me, pick me! 🙂

  36. 36

    Ooh, I could do with both of those!!

    Well I need business cards, cos I’ve never had any, and am handed about 20 every time I left my flat in Hong Kong. I look like a pleb. Help me.

    Am living in my Dad’s apartment so I really want the canvas print so I can take down the baby pictures of me, and put up something worth looking at!
    Fingers crossed!

  37. 37

    I would use the cards to promote the new blog I am launching if all goes well on Monday.

    I just started my own business in January and would love to have the business cards to promote the business. The business is just new that I am unable to afford the price of business cards right now.

    Thanks for considering me in this contest!

    Business Cards!

    We are hurtin’ in the recession with two layoffs (husband and I) and two housing payments (his new job came with a move and we have one unsold home).

    I am starting a business to help laid off people become self-employed. People are hungry for good advice in this area because there are so few jobs (yet many opportunities to start a microbusiness or be a consultant). I have a professional background in entrepreneurship as well as 13 years running my own business.

    I would use the business cards to get out there and network my ### off! Right now I am putting off that expense. Not willing to use the quickprint junky cards at the local staples but can’t afford nice ones.

    Thanks for considering me in this contest!

    You never said these would be new, customized business cards so for all we know they could be a box of leftovers ; ) Assuming in this “down economy” these were already printed on, I would get my green on, crossing out the existing contact info and write in my own! Then I would spread the recycled love all over LA at networking events.

  43. 43

    I would LOVE to win one of these

    I can’t say as my usage is too out-there original, but it’s pretty darned important to me. I’m looking into opening a photography and graphic design gallery in my town soon with my girlfriend. If it works out, it will be just barely on the financial side. To be able to do an extra large print of one of my pieces, or just to print up some AWESOME business cards for the gallery would be amazing. And I can guarantee the prints would look awesome — I’m a ninja at photoshop 🙂

    Thanks for sponsoring the contest, ANDY! You rock dude.

    I could always use both of course. Being a designer I like to change up my business cards pretty frequently. But I’d really love to get a canvas print of my Pat Buchanan artwork. Been wanting some witty commentary-like work over my fireplace for a while now. 🙂

  45. 45

    I already have a stack of business cards, so I’d got for the canvas.
    I think it will look pretty professional if I have a canvas on the wall of my office with my company logo on it. I’ll add a little tag with the text “brought to you by @andysowards”, like they have in art galleries.. but without a price 🙂

  46. 46

    having worked at a printshop that printed both Business Cards and large format inkjet prints on canvas i have had many opportunities but never got around to printing my own photography! i’m currently unemployed and looking for work, so printing business cards would be a GREAT asset!

    i’m starting to run out!

  47. 47

    I can use both, so I’ll try for both!

    I’d unsurprisingly print business-related information on the cards and hand them out to everyone who crosses my path. This is part of my post-apocalyptic master plan: who do you think people will remember when they need a website in the wasteland? ‘Zackly.

    As for the canvas, I have an art show coming up and, uh, no printed art. The coordinator is completely unstable and will no doubt kill me if I don’t get this and this in some physical form. If you hook me up, you’d be a literal life-saver.

    Business card shmizzzness cards!

    18×24 canvas print! That just made me all tingly. I always design personal digital artwork large enough so I can print it out on canvas, stretch it, and hang it up. I have only done this once with 11×17. I’d love to hang up some of my own work at a decent size in my home!

  49. 49

    I would use the business cards to expand the reach of my start-up business to try to grow it into a sustainable machine for me and the family.

    The print would hang above my computer and inspire me to keep working hard and that there is a good chance, with hard work, that I can make this company into more than just a start-up.

  50. 50

    Sure I’ll sign up, doesn’t hurt my chances.

    If I won I’d use the biz cards to help promote myself in finding a job for after college graduation. Economy is tough right now and you need to make a name for yourself especially in a competitive market.

    I have been meaning to make some cards but I never have enough time with class work, freelance, and my p/t job. My portfolio is just now finally going to be released (which I am very excited about).

    Every little bit helps, thanks Andy!

  51. 51

    Thanks for such a generous offer. If I were to win I’d use the cards to enhance marketing efforts at my small business and I think a new design enhances employee moral. Anything helps in tough times, thanks again!

  52. 52

    I just moved into a new apartment in Belgium and have zero artwork on my walls. Zero! A canvas print of something designy would be absolutely perfect to make me feel more at home 🙂

  53. 53

    Well I would be using the business cards, main reason – I have never had mine printed yet! *shock horror* so I need some 😀 I could have said my dog ate them, but that would be a lie – and I could never lie to you Andy 😉
