We save money on business cards by designing our own. My husband took this picture in our backyard, and put the words on it on the computer.

I got a great deal on business cards with pix at www.vistaprint.com. They had a deal on free photo uploads! So 500 only cost me $6 or so for shipping.

BE very careful w/this outfit as they can only

produce run-of-the-mill in-house designs, etc.

I ordered envelopes from them & they printed

client's name upside down. On second go-around

they did NOT use supplied typography so

caveat emptor.

This is a very nice link to making your own free printable calendar business cards.

Use card stock paper for best results. You can also cut the cards out with craft scissors that come in different cutting edges for a more creative look. Experiment with different colored papers till you get the look you want.

Editor's Note: We tried this. It took a long time to print out the calendar side because there is so much text and the text is small but they turned out very well.

Great product, only no 2007 available yet and it's already Oct 06'. I would love to print 2007 on my cards now!

If you have Microsoft Word or Word Perfect you can download a business card template. At least I know you can for Microsoft Word, not to sure about Word perfect. You can get business card stock from a stationary store or from Walmart. Print on normal paper the first time you have your form done and make sure it matches up to the business card stock you purchased. This keeps you from wasting the business card stock.

You can do the same thing for return address labels; this will look good if you mail a business card to someone and you address label and business card match. Kind of professional.

If you are going to buy card stock and print your own business card MAKE SURE that your printer can handle the heavier weight of the card stock. Most printers can not run card stock as they flip the paper 180 degrees during the printing process.

I've had good luck with Vistaprint, but you should be aware that they re-sell your information, leading to spam email and other ads. Also buried in their fine print is the fact that they're an overseas-based company, which resulted in an extra "currency conversion" charge of a couple dollars from my credit card company. It wasn't much, but I'm always annoyed by these charges which are very difficult to find out in advance.

It's been awhile, but I always got good results with MS Publisher. There are a variety of business card templates built into the program, and you can exchange your own images for the built-in ones with a couple of mouse clicks. When I worked as a church secretary several years ago, I created and printed all the stationery, business cards, etc.

I haven't tried to find it, but I hear there's a free version of MS Office out there. You could find it by searching for "open Office" in your fave search engine. (My fave is dogpile.com.) Of course, when thinking about the cost, you'll want to figure in the time you took creating the document as well as materials; cardstock, ink/toner, etc.

Best to you!

Another good spot is www.moo.com. I think you even get some free with just shipping and handling fees. Just like Vista Print.
