Pet Bloggers Need Business Cards Too! | BuildASign.com Review & Giveaway

I haven't been a pet blogger for a very long time, but I feel like I've really been able to learn a lot and take Pawsitively Pets to the next level in a short amount of time. This August, I hope to attend my first event - the Austin Pet Expo in Austin, TX. That's why when I was asked to review a product from BuildASign I jumped at the opportunity.

BuildASign offers a large variety of products to help businesses get their name out there. They have a banner maker, sign maker, car magnets, bumper stickers, business card maker, flyers, and more to help grow your business.

My very first pet blogging business cards! The blurred out spot is my phone number. 

I thought that business cards would be the perfect thing to take along with me to the Austin Pet Expo, so that's the product I chose to review. I've never really had my own business cards before, so when I opened the box and saw my cards I felt all special inside! :)

I received 250 free business cards from BuildASign for this honest review and I must say that I am very pleased with them! They turned out better than what I had hoped for. Although my business cards were free, they would have been very inexpensive if I had purchased them. It costs $13.99 for a set of 250 business cards from BuildASign which I think is a great price. They also arrived much faster than I was expecting.

I got to design the cards myself, which was super easy. If you're not the design type, BuildASign offers a couple of nice pre-made design templates which you can use and customize. They even have several "Animal Care" style business cards to chose from.

Here's a little more about BuildASign from their website:
"Our signs are printed on high quality materials with some of the most advanced printing equipment available. Our design tool lets you design your own custom signs, even upload your own images. You can get your signs delivered as soon as tomorrow."

I can't wait to hand out my first business cards to others when I attend the Austin Pet Expo in August. I hope these cards help to give me that professional edge I need to advance my blog further. Also, if you're planning to attend, I'd love to say hello! Let me know!

  7. Your cards look great but we aren't entering because we have featured Build A Sign on both blogs (on Cat Chat quite some time ago, as in at least 2 yrs ago) and I bought a sign from them for my step daughter's wedding. I also have their link housed on Cat Chat. Good luck to all who enter.
