My BlogHer Sponsor {Giveaway}

*Update* Congrats to The Halbert Home! You won! 


I'm going to Chicago!

In July.

For BlogHer (the blogging conference).

I'm Going to BlogHer '09

We'll talk about my nerves and fears and ohmygosh Ican'tbelieve I'mdoingthis feelings later.

But first, I'd like you to meet the people making it possible.

I owe all my fear and excitement to UPrinting, my BlogHer sponsor!

This company has really impressed me. (They also flatter me since I'm their first blogger to sponsor for a conference).

They have set themselves apart by becoming a friend to Mom blogs. They understand the needs of bloggers and are reaching out to them in an unprecedented way!

You can apply for their blog sponsorship program they recently created! There's free products (have you seen what they made me?), giveaways, discounts, conference sponsorships and advertising for your blog.


They also sent me 500 custom business cards I created from scratch on their website (There are hundreds of templates or you can create your own). 

And today, they are offering one of you 1000 business cards too! Click over and look at the vast choices and tell me what you like!

You can make Mommy cards, blog cards, or create something really unique (ya know that helps get your laundry done).

Thanks UPrinting for supporting Mom blogs!

This giveaway will close on Thursday.

Congratulations! That's awesome. I'm SO in need of new business cards. I redesigned my blog and now my cards don't match. :-(

And I'd love to see you at BlogHer. I would need a generous sponsor though... ;-)

Alli Worthington {@alliworthington} said...

YAY!

I can not wait to see you again.

I was the only person at BlissDom without cards. :)

See you very soon! {SQUEE}

I'm going to Blogher too. Can't wait and hope to meet you IRL. I will be looking into Blog Cards, winning them would be so much better for my wallet.

Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam said...

How wonderful - do they know how fortunate they are to have you as their "sponsoree?" :)

RLR said...

Oh, I could use some new 'mom cards' - my kids are starting at a new school in the fall. Add to that my considerably confusing double first name and relatively unusual last name, and mom cards are an excellent solution!

I looked at several designs, and it's hard to pick! I do like Wrap It Up and Perennial Blooms, but that's just a start!

The Un-Organized Mom said...

I would love to design my own to match my blog..

How exciting to have a sponsor for BlogHer!!! Have a great time!!

chickadee@afamiliarpath said...

Susan (5 Minutes For Mom) said...

Awesome! What a great company to have as a sponsor.

See you there!!!

Lee of MWOB said...

I have the same feelings you do about BlogHer - the Ican'tbelieveI'mdoingthis stuff you are talking about - BUT business will SURELY solve all of my anxiety problems. I need me some business cards so consider me in....cool?

I love the "Conservative/Clean" designs - perfect for when I change my info and haven't had time to design new cards!

Dana said...

I would love some more cards. I only have 5 left. I'm sure I am commenting right next to the person who will win through. I rarely win. But maybe this is my turn!

Faith said...

oh cool...i would LOVE to win since I'm getting so tired of hand writing my blog address on little scraps of paper...that would be much easier. LOL. what a cool giveaway!

Maddy said...

Very impressive! Both the business cards and the sponsorship. I didn't even know that kind of think that kind of thing was possible. Obviously I need to widen my horizons.
Cheers

Rebekah Sanders said...

Jealous that you're going to BlogHer! Especially since it's in my very favoritest city - Chicago! I love Chicago! Have a slice of Lou Malnati's pizza for me!

I need new cards. I'm out and was tired of my design anyway. Loving this website and all it has to offer. The only trouble would be picking just one!

Loral said...

I really liked the Green Patch style, but if I won I'd probably design something to match the logo on my labels :) Cool contest!

Team Pipkin said...

Thats's great!!!
I like the Garden Bouquet business cards.

Heatherp101@yahoo.com said...

I would love to win these and design my own, if possible. I'm always caught drooling over my friends' cards. ;-)

I've always wanted a mommy calling card, so this would be awesome! Thanks and have fun! Can't wait to hear about it. :)

Sam said...

I too would LOVE some mommy cards! I can't wait to check out their site. Thanks Kristen!

Alyson said...

What a fun giveaway! Lucky you, but your sponsor is luckier. ;) Can't decide which card, so maybe design my own mommy card? Or maybe gift tags for my children's presents? Hmmmm. Like the 2x2, as well. Have FUN in Chi-town!

Jessica Morris said...

I like the WORN OUT BC look :)

Dolphin Girl said...

I like the 2x2 cards. I would use them as mommy calling cards! Thanks!

I think I'd get the Standout design with the little pencils, or else I might design my own.

Thanks! :)

Jennifer A. said...

Can't wait to meet you atBlogHer

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

I would definitly love these cards. Of course making the most of them by having them be blog/Mommy cards in gender netural since I have a little Chloe and a little John-John.

Thanks for sharing about BlogHer and Uprinting!

You'll be working on your patience skills over the next couple months :)

Stretch Mark Mama said...

Been wanting some business cards for a while!

I was on the waiting list and just got a ticket. Now I would love to find a sponsor to help pay my way.
I like the Guilty Pleasures Business Cards.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Since these conferences seem to be for women, I will not be attending. However 1000 cards sounds nice. I would put the pic that is currently on my sight on the card (The one that says I do my own stunts).

Phyllis Sommer said...

i like the die-cut cards with rounded edges. how cool are those!!!! so not "cookie cutter"...congrats to you on the sponsorship.

MYSUESTORIES said...

Have been trying to find affordable business cards for my blog for months---and FREE is definitely in the right price range!!!! I just haven't decided which design I like best yet! I hope I have to!!!

Lorie said...

There's too much to choose from. Thanks!

Leighann said...

I could really use these! I just changed the name of my blog and I need new biz cards for BlogHer.

I was "Soy is the New Black" and now I am "Multi-Minding Mom."

I would love to create custom business cards with my new logo.

Suz said...

I would love to design my own to match my blog design.. new design currently in the works! Yeah!

I like the new sizes!

Thanks for the opportunity!

MommaYoung said...

Congrats on being able to go to blogher...

Yes, isn't it funny how tinkering around on the internet "helps" get my laundry done...

Have a great trip and yes, thank you Uprinting.

Meegan said...

Great business cards! I would probably pick something out of the fun or floral category. I love that they have some very modern trendy designs. Very cool!
