Build A Sign Review & Giveaway

Have you heard of  They are the really neat company that allows you to customize your own signs, banners and stickers.  I was contacted by BuildASign to try out their site and customize a few products of my own.   They have a banner maker, sign maker, and a business card maker, all dedicated for making your designing experience easier.  You can check out this video to learn more about the company, or visit their facts page to read about their vision and all of the wonderful ways they give back to the community. If you are a member of the Military (like we are) then you will definitely want to check out their Troops Program. 

I knew exactly what I wanted to customize for myself – new business cards of course!  We all know how important business cards are to your personal branding, especially for the purpose of promoting yourself in your online market.  I just ordered new business cards (from another vendor) for my Pretty Shiny Object site but didn't really care for the way they turned out, so I was very excited to get another chance to do it right
this time.
The site is pretty easy to navigate through, and once you are in the business card section you have a multitude of pre-made templates available to choose from, or the option of uploading a pre-made
design.  I decided to use a pre-made template and it was fun adding all of the elements available in the editor along with my own logo.  I was able to manipulate and move all the elements around with full control, which made my design possibilities endless.  I ended up designing a set of business cards for this blog, along with my Pretty Shiny Object website.  I have included a video of the process so you can see how easy it was using their business card maker.

Here are my new cards!

What do you think?  I really like my new business cards and I’m happy that BuildASign made it happen. These cards are high quality and beautifully printed. Best of all, they are affordably priced. To give you an idea, one set of 100 business cards with a 2"x 3.5" size (matte) would only have cost me $11.99 each, and if you have ordered business cards before, you know that price is pretty great! The best part is that BuildASign has offered to giveaway one of the following great prizes to one lucky reader: 
- 25 Bumper Magnets
- 50 Bumper Stickers 
- 250 Business Cards 
- A 3' x 6' Vinyl Banners
We have provided you ways to enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter below. The giveaway begins on 06/29/2013 at 12:00 AM (Eastern Time) and ends on 07/06/2013 at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) .  The winner will be notified by email - good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

I received these product free from BuildASign. I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own. I only recommend products or services I use personally
and believe will be good for my readers.

    We used their website to make a sign for my Dad when he came home from deployment. It was very easy to use and the sign was great! We were very happy!

    I really like Moo cards but they are very expensive and the design options are still limited. These sound like an alternative worth checking out.
