Win Baltimore Grand Prix Tickets

Do you want to go to the Baltimore Grand Prix?  Well you are in luck!  Mr. Tire is giving away 250 pairs of tickets to the 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix for Friday September 2nd.  All you need to do is fill out and submit your information on the online entry form. Then you could win tickets to the event.  You better hurry to enter as the sweepstakes ends August 22nd, 2011.

There is a catch.  You can enter if you reside in Delaware, Washington DC, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia or West Virginia.  If you live in other states… sorry you are not eligible.  I assume most people within the specified entry states are most likely the majority of people who would be attending the Baltimore Grand Prix anyway.

The winners will be notified by email on August 24th.  So don't make any plans for Labor day weekend if you enter.  Remember this is big event for Baltimore.  If you win some tickets I hope to see you there!

My New Business Cards

Business Card

Adam's Auto Advice has some new official business cards!  I can give them out at car shows, events, as well as family, friends, etc.  Basically whoever is interested in my work.

I am happy with design and how the overall look of the cards came out.  I ordered through OfficeMax, but they use Vistaprint's system. Officemax was cheaper though because Vistaprint charges a lot for shipping!  Vistaprint was $15 for 7-day shipping, while Officemax had Free Shipping for these cards.  Officemax charged more for the cards, but it came out less expensive because of the shipping.  I assume Vistaprint makes a lot of money charging ridiculous shipping prices.

I paid a little over $40 for this batch of 500, which was not a good deal at all.  While I like the image and look of the card, the paper is thin.  Like cardstock you would have bought from the store and printed at home.  The cut on some of the cards did not come out well.  I don't really feel like I got my money's worth with Vistaprint.

I did some checking around and found other websites with much better deals and quality.  A lot offer free shipping on any order and proofing.  If you are looking around for business cards or thinking you might want to get some in the future, I would recommend signing-up for emails from a couple printing websites.  You will be notified of special promotions and sales, which makes a big difference in cost.  I will use these cards up and then ordered from another website.

I would like to hear comments and suggestions from people.  What do you think of my business cards?  Do you like or dislike the design?
