Review & Giveaway: 123 Print UK Business Cards

I was recently given the opportunity to review some business cards from 123 Print UK.  It was my first time creating business cards for my blog so I was very excited at the prospect, if a little nervous; it makes it seem much more official now!

After a quick scout around to see what kind of information I needed to include on my cards,  I visited their website to start the process.  It was very straightforward and although I got a little confused over the different lines and what could and couldn't go outside of them, when I fired off an email asking for some help it was responded to in a really timely manner.  Last year I tried to create some business cards on a different website and had such trouble trying to get my blog header on that I abandoned the process after wasting a couple of hours trying and failing to get it right.  In my head I was expecting this to be the same but it really wasn't, even a designphobe like me managed to get it right!

Once I had got the design as I wanted it, I chose to have my business cards printed on slightly thicker card as I thought this would make them seem more professional and added them to my basket.  

Delivery was very speedy, 123 Print UK offer a 48 hour delivery option or a standard 7 day delivery (which is still pretty quick for a personalised product to be honest!) and I am really impressed with the quality of my business cards.  I initially thought I'd be hesitant about handing them out but I like them so much I have been giving them to everyone I can think of!  The colour is very crisp and clear and I think they look much better than they did on screen.


Overall I think that 123 Print UK offer good value for money and creating the business cards was a simple and quick process which has resulted in a really great product which I am proud of.  I truly am a grown up blogger now!

If you are looking at my beautiful business cards and wishing you had some for yourself then here's some good news; 123 Print UK have offered me 3 sets of 50 personalised business cards to give away.  So 3 lucky people will be able to create cards for their blogs or business.  Just use the rafflecopter below to enter.

    Your cards look great. I'd probably get some blog ones done (even though i never thought of that before now). In the past I needed some when I was self-employed and we also had some made to publicise a charity we supported which was a handy way of getting the word out. x

    What beautiful business cards -
    such a fresh colour and the type is perfect for your blog / image.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed and would use the cards as contact cards for guests coming to stay… getting some printed is on my 'to do' list!
    Must be such fun to design too.
    Best wishes,
    Emma :-)
