OK, this is a really cool giveaway! The nice people at UPrinting.com are going to give one of my readers a chance to make their own poster. What, you don't want a cool poster??? Here's how I look at it: You can upload a really neat picture that your kid made and have it turned into a poster for their bedroom. You can use UPrinting.com's stock images (for a small fee). You can use any uploaded image from your computer! Think of the possibilities! My oldest loves to draw his own graphic novels and is excited to be able to create his own professional-looking poster with his artwork featured.
free templates available in different file types (Adobe, Publisher, PhotoShop, etc.) that you can download to help you design your poster. UPrinting.com also offers any number of poster type/size combos. You can get mounted posters, which will make your creation look more like a piece of art than a poster. They have the ability to offer bulk orders in amounts from 50 to 100,000 posters! You can choose between a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish. And they can make you large format posters in sizes ranging from 16" X 20" up to a whopping custom-ordered 58" X 100". Can you imagine THAT??? All of this can be done with a 1-Day turnaround time.
And, of course, in addition to posters, UPrinting.com also offers custom printing for businesses, marketing, and home use. I'm considering having the kids design bookmarks for holiday gifts to give to family and friends this year. I usually give books, so the bookmarks would go well! We also need a yard sign with our address printed on it - badly. We live in an apartment within a converted house, way at the back of the lot. UPS and FedEx can never find us. I always get little postcards in the mail saying that my address doesn't exist and I need to go pick up my package. ARGH! Anyway, as you can see, there are a ton of products available that you can have printed up ASAP.
Finally, something important to me: they are an eco-friendly company. UPrinting.com uses soy-based inks. This means that there are less chemicals used in the inking process along with lowered carbon emissions. Additionally, the company recycles all of its scraps, printing plates AND inks; leaving less impact on the environment and keeping them out of trash heaps. You can also request that the cardstock they use be made of either 30% or 10% recycled materials.
