Business Cards from BuildASign - Plus $25 Gift Card Giveaway (ENDED)

As many of you know, I recently launched my blog, "Mommy's Castle," and I've been working hard to promote the page. I decided that promoting the blog via the internet wasn't enough. I wanted to enhance my image as a blogger and promote the site with something that people can physically hold in their hands: Business cards.

I received one of the following products for free in exchange for a review. Regardless, the views and opinions are my own, and I only recommend products or services that I use or believe will be good for my readers. Results may vary. I was not compensated in any other way for this review.

I created business cards for my blog at BuildASign. The process was incredibly easy and the templates were 100% customizable. Being that I'm quite picky, I appreciated the various options available for personalization. Not only was I able to upload my photos to use, there were also hundreds of different clipart images to choose from. I was highly impressed with the options available and even more impressed with the design I was able to create.

To get a better idea of what other business card designers were like in comparison to BuildASign's, I went to a few other personalization websites. There were very few that were as easy to use as BuildASign's interface, and none had as many design options as BuildASign.

I received my cards about a week and a half after placing my order. They came packed in a durable box, and were all perfectly crisp when I received them--no bent edges, no creases. They are printed on a durable cardstock so I needn't worry about them wearing down quickly in the wallets of potential clients. The printing was high quality, and they looked far more impressive in person.

However, if you notice beneath my photograph, there is a blank space. I had actually placed a QR code there, but it did not print. I contacted customer service and received the following response in a timely manner:
Greetings Emily,
Good afternoon & thank you for your inquiry!

Thank you for giving us an opportunity to fix this for you, which we definitely want to do!

Occasionally we have issues with QR codes and the way that they read, which ultimately ends up printing your code incorrectly. I'm sorry we didn't catch that this time!

I just checked the proof and this is what caused the error in printing so I've got a request in to my art team to update this right away. Once this is complete, I will get these cards reprinted for you, of course at no charge. This process will take 2-3 business days or so for the new cards to be shipped. You will get another ship confirmation email when they leave our doors with the new tracking details.

My apologies again for any inconvenience this may have caused, Emily! Let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Have a great day & week!

Thanks for choosing us for your printing needs, we know you have many options for printing and we are glad you have chosen us.
I am currently waiting on the shipment of the revised cards, and will update with a new photograph as soon as I receive them.

*Update* I received the revised business cards. The picture is below with the QR code below my photo.

Even with the previous error in printing, I am satisfied with BuildASign. Shipping was rather quick, the cards were high-quality, and I also was able to get a taste of BuildASign's customer service. They were quick to resolve the issue, and the customer service representative was as kind and helpful as could be. Excellent customer service is hard to come by these days, but it is clear that BuildASign lives up to their 100% satisfaction guarantee.

I would recommend BuildASign and I would definitely do business with them again.

If you're looking for more than just business cards, BuildASign also offers customizable license plates, street signs, vinyl banners, bumper stickers, flags, and so much more. Advertising your business, celebrating a birthday, or promoting an event is incredibly easy with BuildASign.

Today, you have a chance to win a $25 gift card from BuildASign. The giveaway will run for two weeks (DATE START to DATE END) and the winner will be chosen at random using RaffleCopter. The winner will be notified via e-mail and after accepting the win, will receive their promotional code in a second e-mail. If the winner does not claim his/her gift within a week, a new winner will be chosen.
