Got questions? We've got answers!

We have pricing for all budgets, higher priced packages come with a larger prize for the winning designer, which typically results in higher participation by more skilled creatives. View the pricing for all types of contests here.

Contests run for ten days, during which time you will receive entries and can request revisions. If you need work done more quickly our rush upgrade gets you results in 48 hours and usually results in more entries than a comparable 10 day contest. You can always extend your contest once it ends if you want to see more entries or want to request changes to an existing entry.​

You can run any type of design or naming contest on Hatchwise, if we do not have a specific category for your design contest please use the Custom Graphic Design category. We do not allow contests that contain any of the following: anything that may be: construed as obscene, pornographic, illegal or offensive in any way.
 Yes! You can award a winner whenever you want.
You get one (1) completed entry per contest. If you need different versions of the completed entry (black and white, different tag lines etc…) you can hire the winning creative to do it after the contest is over (you get their contact details with the completed entry). If you need a entry designed for more than one company, or need more than one entry for the same company you would need to run more than one contest. Creatives have the option when submitting their entry to your contest to allow you to buy their entry once you have awarded a first place winner.

Additional designs cost $100 each if available after your contest ends.

All of the designs that you do not award or purchase remain the sole property of the submitting creative(s).

Business Card Design Contests

Business Cards, A History

Fun fact: business cards have been around for hundreds of years! They were first used in the 17th century to alert townspeople of nobility visiting their area. They may have been a little different from their modern counterparts, but business cards are still used to make a statement. They give you the chance to efficiently form a connection with someone, making your presence known and securing a reason to follow up. While technology has reduced the need for some types of analog communication, like handwritten letters, business cards are just as useful in face-to-face meetings as ever.

Why Are Business Cards Important?

First and foremost, business cards tell people who you are. They typically include your name and contact information, along with your company or industry. While this may seem basic, the function that a business card performs is essential: it’s the quickest way to secure a contact. While many new applications exist to make contact with people online, there’s no replacement for face-to-face, and when you have that opportunity, you need to make your mark. Rather than fumbling with apps or emails and operating systems, you can simply leave your card. Even if you prefer digital communication, it’s easy to quickly scan the information later.

Let Hatchwise Fulfill Your Design Needs

Business cards give you the opportunity to make a great first visual impression. From a design perspective, the possibilities are endless: fonts, logos, embossing, and color schemes are some of the ways to highlight your brand identity with a single glance. With so many options, it can be difficult to know what design will make the greatest impact. That’s something an experienced  design team can help with. At Hatchwise, we’ll collaborate with you to execute your vision and message within a single business card, whether understated and subtle or vibrant and eye-catching. We can incorporate and distill the unique elements of your logo or branding into the perfect first impression. Let’s get started!


We’re passionate about every single creative project on Hatchwise being the best it can possibly be. If you need help or have questions we’re here for you! Our support team is responsive, helpful, and has all the answers.

“Wow- you delivered even more than I expected. Great service and experience!”
