Seems to be a pretty good deal. I should say this knack of your to spring out a profitable idea out of nowhere is what has helped you be where you are today. With constant interactions with you through your blog, I hope to build such knack in myself as well.
I would be designing a card for you.

Missed out on the last part of my comment. Actually I hit the enter button and the zoooooooooom went the comment.
What I meant to say that I too would be designing a card for you, but unfortunately since I cannot participate in the contest, I will have to keep it with me itself, just as a memento that I too participated.

4 Maria Palma

What a great deal! People underestimate the power of a well-designed business card. You definitely want something unique…I may just put on my design hat on and enter the contest!

“Is that a Shoemoney business card in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

6 Free Business Cards

Free cards for life is outstanding. Very nice contest.

7 Smart Teenager

Very awesome deal. You should set up a gallery of the cards that are sent in and let the readers vote. It’d be a lot of fun.

8 CPA Affiliates

Cool deal for you and the winner. I am sure you will get some Awesome entries.

16 Ricky Peterson

17 Jay @ work from home

A lifetime of business cards is a real money saver. Wish I could design I would be on this contest. Nice contest you got going Shoe.

18 Tamir

Why bother? visit a printing web site and design you own business cards using its on line tools and be happy. I’ll never use business cards which were designed by somebody else. It’s such an individual thing. Try DCP-PRINT.COM. I recommend it for being a very friendly user site. .

19 DJ Equipment Dealer

what? dude, put your logo in the middle (65×65), make it an all white card on heavy stock; raised letters and your website. that’s it, end of contest. the card is only an extension of the success of shoemoney…

20 Dean Saliba

I’d definitely be up for a bit of this. Business cards have proved good at driving traffic to my blogs in the past.

21 Best CSS Gallery

Great contest, I wish I could design… But I can’t… So, good luck to all the participants!

22 Reverend Dave Miller

I’ll be designing something.

I just hope Mr Shoemaker realizes that any submission may need to be tweaked before being produced as cards.

For example, I’d prefer to get a high-res version of the logo in my design. Unfortunately, unless I’m missing something, the logo will be lo-res.

23 Holly Mann

Hi Reverend Dave,
I imported the logo they provided (the .eps) file into Photoshop to edit it. If you have adobe photoshop – you can import it as a Smart Object (and resize it upon importing it) and you can resize it with no loss of quality or resolution. Hope it helps.

24 lloyd s

I’d love to know what your current card looks like, and what your expecting from the new one. This is a neat contest though. I’ll be sure to design for you, if we can get a few more details. You rock, Thanks

25 Holly Mann

I just submitted my design – hope you like it Jeremy. The contest is a great idea!

26 Business Cards Land

Great contest! We wrote about this on the blog and hopefully we’ll get a lot more people interested! Can’t wait to see the winning design!

27 YingHang

I think it is a fabulous contest. Why it is amazing is because it helps you to find different ideas and designs. Contests like this could give birth to new, great ideas.

28 Stephanie B.

Just came across your post. I found it informative for me and I’m sure many others. I did also have small trouble subscribing to the blog but figured it out; I’m still a 2-finger typist :) . Thank you and keep your blogging spirit going strong.

29 Brett

Great contest idea. A business card has so much potential! Good luck getting a great design!

What a joke you are, not only do you have to lie to WS, you also have to lie to us in order to make your story more believable. ,

33 blogiskewl

Hi, I recently started a bloghosting platform (based on wordpress MU) and when I stumbled your blog I paid attention to your theme (looking good) so I was wondering can you tell me is it custom made theme or one of those free ones? thanks in advance! regards, blogiskewl

34 you can

Its amazing to me how many ways you can go about investing your money. I’ve found for me that best solution is both risky and low risk stocks. I tend to put about 1/2 my investments into low risk mutual funds that grow over time and the other half in high risk high gain stocks. I recently got into day trading and I found that software stock picks are more reliable as they can automate a process that I cant do quickly enough. The fellows over at have an incredible system. You should check them out!

Good design could be good for some, but to some others, it’s rubbish. Trust us, we now have experienced our share of differing beliefs on our own design work…

36 Reverend Dave Miller

I’d really like to see what the winning entry looked like…
