A few months ago we had the first contest here on Abduzeedo, the Icon Contest. It was really cool, we had lots of nice designs and great participation. Now we've decided to start a new contest, a small one, but with more winners. Our idea is to motivate you to practice and try different things.

The new contest will be all about card design. It may be a business card or just a conceptual card, it's up to you, and it's up to you the subject, it's not a card for abduzeedo. Our friends from UPrinting.com will give to the winners the opportunity to have their cards printed, what is really cool. Take a look at some information about the Business cards.

The winner will be able to choose any of UPrinting.com stocks, including the eco-friendly cover stock (13 pt. Cover Uncoated - Recycled) or the the 14 pt. family in Matte, AQ, or UV at any custom size we offer such as square cards, odd sizes like 3x3, 2x2. For more information about the sizes and features visit the the Business Card Printing page on UPrinting.com.
