  7. I am just on the brink of getting some new business cards for the record label I work for ‘Baker Street Recordings’.  2012 will see us kicking off our events in a big way so it would be quality to have some wicked cards to hand out at them.

  8. I would be use these as “photo sharing” cards to place on tables during our wedding reception. They would announce to our guests to upload their best photos from our special day to a public flickr or shutterfly account!

  10. I’m a seller on  I’m just starting a business card swap and will need lots of cards to pass out and mail to my swap partners.  I just ordered a quantity but anticipate needing many more…As for my store, I will have lots of new and original items coming up to list that will hopefully attract more buyers to whom I can pass along cards 🙂  Thank you for your consideration.

  11. I just started my own social media marketing company and not having to pay for my first batch of business cards would mean I could spend the little capital I have on customer acquisition.

  12. Really very nice way to get the business cards freely. But i would like to ask you whether the card you provide free are made from the good material ? And the design of the business card will be of chose by us or it will be default by you?
