HOW TO CREATE A BUSINESS CARD IN WORD
Step 1: Pick a template
While you can add shapes directly to a page in Word, you may want to contain them within a Drawing Canvas instead. A canvas acts as a container for your flowchart, so instead of moving each element individually, you can position a chart with a single click. Canvases can also be styled to add polish to your flowchart. To insert a canvas, click the Insert tab and select Shapes. Scroll to the bottom of the panel and click the menu item labeled “New Drawing Canvas.”
Step 2: Add your information
Now we fill in the personal information. Don’t forget to proofread every detail on the card. It’s a good idea to have a friend or colleague take a look at your business card template to catch any typos you may have missed. Here’s what the card looks like with default fonts and colors.
Step 3: Customize Your Card
Try adding a shadow to the shapes. Right click on your shape, then select Format Shape. This will bring up a formatting panel on the right side of your canvas. You can also click on the Format tab to expand options for your shape. Here, we’ve done a drop shadow on all three shapes. This is what the card looks like now:
The default colors use warm shades—vermillion, green, and beige. You may decide that cool colors would better project your desired image. To use preset color themes, select the Design tab.
Step 4: Make a sheet of business cards
Step 5: Use a ruler or gird
Step 6: Share your business cards
You can experiment with home printing from Word. Standard business card size in the U.S. is 3.5 inches by 2 inches. Avery is a common business card paper manufacturer: their business card templates come with ten cards per sheet. To print, use Ctrl (Cmd) + P and use Word's printing dialog.
