"Over the past 10 years, Vistaprint® has been a champion of micro businesses everywhere, giving them the tools and services to succeed in presenting a professional brand image to customers," said Bridget O'Brien, vice president of marketing communications at Vistaprint. "The company launched this contest as a way to give back to that community and allow them to showcase their businesses. This gives them a forum to tell their story, but also have a chance at a prize package that will dramatically impact their marketing efforts, increase their customer base and enhance their brand."
To enter the contest, users can log onto www.1-800-Vistaprint.com/contest. Once on the site, entrants are asked to answer a number of questions that will let them tell their story and explain how they have made an impression on their own customer base. Small businesses will be judged by a Vistaprint panel and also by the general public. Entrants will have the ability to have their customers, friends, employees and fans vote for their entry in the contest, which will account for 10 percent of the final vote.
Four micro-businesses will be selected as winners of a grand prize including a $600 HP gift card, a Web commercial produced by Pixability and a full marketing package -- including a targeted direct mail campaign -- designed by Vistaprint's creative design team. The contest is open to all legal residents of the United States of America (located in the 50 U.S. states or District of Columbia).
