Quick & Easy business cards. I have been contemplating ordering some "real" business cards for some time now, but really didn't know if I would ever need them. Well, yesterday I needed them. After meeting with 20+ Etsy sellers, I really wished I had my "fancy" business cards to swap. I did, however, have these quick and easy ones that I whipped up Friday night (I made more today to tide me over until my "real" ones come in a few weeks). In case you too find yourself in need of some last minute business cards, here is a little tutorial to get you swapping in no time: 1. Buy a pack of business cards, size 3-1/2" x 2". I found my pack of 250 business cards at Big Lots, for a buck! I am sure they have them at Office Depot or Staples as well, but I would check Big Lots first. 2. Open up a document in Microsoft Word. I assume other programs can create business cards too, but I used Microsoft Word. 3. In Microsoft Word click "Tools", "Letters & Mailings", "Envelopes & Labels". Pretty easy, so far! 4. Choose your card size. This one is important, or all of your text will be funky. With "Envelopes & Labels" open, click "Options". Scroll down through all of the options until you find the business card size that matches your cards (ex. 3-1/2" x 2"). In my Word program it is Avery 5377 business card. Click OK. 5. Type in your text. Now this step is a little tricky if you have a design on your card, like I do. I had to test a few pages before I got mine right. I moved over, with the space bar, 23 spaces before I started typing in my text. This cleared the design and centered my text. 6. Spell Check!!! The last thing you want to do is print the entire sheet, or worse all of them, and then realize you misspelled a word! 7. Copy your text. I am not sure if all programs require this, but Word doesn't save your text after you print one page of cards. Or, maybe it does and I just don't know how to do it. In any case, it is best to right click and copy your text BEFORE printing your first sheet of cards. This way you won't have to go through all of the steps every time you want to print a sheet. 8. Print your cards. First, make sure the cards are put in the printer the right way. Thankfully, mine came with the instructions on every sheet, but you might have to send a sheet through first to test it. Then, check to see that the "print full page of the same label" circle is checked. If it is, you are ready to click print. There you go! You now have some super fast, super inexpensive cards to give out to everybody you know.
