Business Card Giveaway $60 value {closed}


Do you have business cards to promote yourself with? If the answer is no, you should enter my giveaway for a chance to win 250 lovely photo business cards (you supply the photo). 

If you already have business cards, do they represent your artwork well? (do they show your work at all??) Are they high-quality, like your work, or thin and flimsy, unlike your work? If you're not satisfied with what you have, you should also enter the giveaway!

You might not think much about your cards, but you should - after all, it's the first impression a gallery or potential customer will have of the type of work you make. If you have a lovely card with a photo (so you can show instead of just tell) you'll be a lot more memorable.

Here's how to win:

1. Visit my online shop OR my etsy store and tell me which item is your favorite by commenting below. (1 entry)

Bonus Entries:

1. Spread the word about this giveaway via Facebook*, Twitter**, blog post or Pinterest pin (+1 extra entry each)
2. Follow Concertina Press on Facebook, Twitter or subscribe to (follow) my blog (+1 extra entry each)
3. Add ConcertinaPress to your Etsy circle (+1)


*on facebook, tag me by typing "@Concertina Press" so I know that you've shared my link
**on twitter, tag me by typing "@RuthBleakley" in your tweet

The WINNER is Marija, from Minnesota!
