In its second-largest acquisition, Amazon buys the company for $970 million.
The personalized product retailer will award 500 free business cards.
OvernightPrints.com, a personalized product retailer, has launched an international design competition inviting customers to submit an original design for the chance to win 500 new business cards. The design can be anything from a logo, to a business card or flyer, but it must have been printed via OvernightPrints.com, No. 172 in Internet Retailer’s Top 500 Guide .
One winner will be selected each week, with winners showcasing their designs to a community of designers and artists via OvernightPrints.com’s social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. The winning designs also will be featured on OvernightPrints’ design and print blog, which updates readers weekly with news, tips and advice as it relates to the design industry.
To enter, contestants must upload a picture of the design ordered from OvernightPrints.com to the company’s Flickr, Twitter or Facebook accounts. Entrants will be judged on creativity, effectiveness and overall visual impact. More information on the contest can be found at OvernightPrints.com/fans.
“We launched this fun, weekly contest to further foster a sense of community among our growing customer base, and to illustrate how a simple postcard or business card can be transformed into a work of art,” says Heather Phillipson, online marketing manager for OvernightPrints.com.
The launch of the contest follows OvernightPrints.com’s recent re-branding campaign which kicked off in June with the new company motto of “BITGIT,” which stands for “buy it today, get it tomorrow.” OvernightPrints.com says it has improved its printing process and shipping capabilities and streamlined order fulfillment.
