Build A Sign for all your advertising needs


I was contacted by Build A Sign  if I wouldn’t mind doing a review of their company in exchange for a gift card toward their product(s). This couldn’t have come at a better time as I went to a breeders seminar last month and sat next to a lady who I wanted to give my information to and low and behold I didn’t have any of my handmade business cards with me. Now why would I go to a breeders seminar and not take business cards with me you ask? Well….it’s because I wasn’t really into remembering my business cards as like I said they were homemade and not very professional looking with them cut in all different sizes and my older dogs were on them and not my up and coming dogs. The wheels were turning and I couldn’t wait to get started.

This is what Build A Sign has to say:


• Better. Easier. Faster

Our signs are printed on high quality materials with some of the most advanced printing equipment available. Our design tool lets you design your own custom signs, even upload your own images. You can get your signs delivered as soon as tomorrow.

• Guarantee

We don’t just claim our products are better, we back it up. If your custom signs aren’t absolutely perfect, call us and we’ll make it right. Our team of experts is standing by to make sure your experience is 100% hassle-free. That’s something you won’t find at a traditional sign franchise.

With that being said why wouldn’t I want to jump at this opportunity? So jump is what I did….I jumped on my computer went to Build A Sign website and got started, I did this on November 12th.

The website is crisp, clean and easy to follow to find what you are looking for. I was looking for business cards so I clicked on business cards and it took me to the business card template page. I chose to start from scratch.

Now you have to pardon my pictures as I have the new windows 8 operating system and I have no idea how to capture my screen so I had to take pictures with my camera and the quality isn’t all that great.

Directions were very easy to follow.  After I clicked on start from scratch it took me into this screen where I could add text, add clipart or upload a image. I started with adding text. Clicked on it and was very easy to make the size I wanted and to change the color of the font to what I wanted, with the arrow keys it was easy to move the text to where I wanted it.

Again it was very easy to add a photo. I just clicked on upload a image and it brought up a screen to choose where I wanted to get a photo from. Once uploaded I could resize it, I could add a border, I could add clip art you do do many different things to get the effect you are looking for.

It was easy to add multiple photo’s and text to the card. I easily positioned them to where I wanted them.

I was happy with what I did so I saved it and moved on to the adding it to my cart and filling out the shipping information. It was all straight forward. When I finished it stated that I would have my item(s) by Dec 2nd. I hit the submit button and couldn’t wait for my order to come in the mail.

If anytime during your order if you have any questions you can be helped out by one of their friendly customer love team. (I didn’t use this function as everything worked perfectly for me).

Need Help? Call 1-800-330-9622

Two weeks later I got my business cards! I was amazed at how fast they got them done and shipped out to me. Impressive!


Didn’t they turn out great? I am very happy with them and have them tucked neatly into my business card holder in my purse now always ready to hand them out.

I also had some car magnets made which was just as easy as doing the business cards. I would highly recommend Build A Sign for your advertising needs!
