Vistaprint is offering 250 free business cards to consumers on its site through February 23, 2011.

Customers can take advantage of the 250 free business cards to create the cards they need for spreading the word about their business, or they can get creative and use them for something else. Some ideas one mom suggested for these cards are emergency contact cards and even quick thank you notes.

There are forty-five different designs available to choose from to create a look that suits each customer’s desire. Each look is customized with the customer’s own text.

Customers that order the cards before February 23, 2011 will only need to pay shipping charges which begin at $5.67 for the 250 cards.
