Giveaway: Design Your Own Custom Recipe Cards at UPrinting
The holidays are just around the corner, and recipe cards make great stocking stuffers! You can give your giftee a pack of blank recipe cards, like in the photo above, if he’s into cooking, or you can write in your favorite recipes down to share.
The problem with store-bought recipe cards is that they’re often printed on virgin paper cut from ancient forests, and the printing process used to create them isn’t always the greenest, either. Plus, if you design your own cards, you know that the gift you’re giving is 100% unique! That’s why I was super excited when the folks at UPrinting offered up a pack of 100 postcards to one lucky Eat Drink Better reader.
Of course, you can use the online postcard printing from UPrinting to design anything you like, but I thought you guys might dig the idea of designing your own recipe cards.
Uprinting uses soy-based inks and 55 percent recycled paper to print their postcards, and they offer a couple of different paper types. If you want to choose the greenest, the uncoated cardstock is the way to go, since the coating on glossy paper is usually made from plastic.
Ready to win some postcard? Here’s how to enter!
