Make your own business cards by using the online tools from printing sites such as Vistaprint.com and PSPrint.com, which include access to templates and the ability to customize text before making an order for the cards. Alternatively, design your own cards in a word processing or graphic design program, and print them at home on special business card sheets.
Vistaprint.com allows you to design cards by choosing from a variety of paper qualities, business types or special features, with some options carrying additional costs. The company also offers a wide selection of graphic options and color schemes for designing the cards, as well as the ability to upload custom text and images such as company logos.
PSPrint.com offers a visual preview of all its templates, which includes a sample color palette, along with a tool for creating a card from scratch. The site also includes options for printing the cards in different shapes, such as ovals or squares, making modifications such as rounding the edges and uploading your own images.
Creating business cards in a graphic design program such as Adobe Photoshop begins by creating a new document, setting its size to at least 3 inches tall by 5 inches wide for a standard card and setting the resolution to 300 DPI. Use the drawing and text tools to create a design, incorporate an external image, or make additional designs.
Microsoft Word features business card templates that automatically set the margins for home printing and allow you to edit text and insert images.
