Small businesses can print their own business cards from free templates, notes Brother. However, business owners will still have to invest money in a printer, ink and business card stock.
When printing out business cards, decide beforehand what type of card stock to use. As noted by Tiny Prints, card stock is available in glossy, matte, textured or regular types. Glossy card stock has a shiny surface, matte card stock is silky, smooth and textured stock has a slight rough or embossed texture on the surface. Regular card stock is just slightly thicker white paper for printing.
