View Full Version : Business Cards by using Photoshop CS2 - how?

04-08-2009, 12:53 PM
Ok quick question - I created two different types of business cards for my freelance photography & design -- now, how do I figure out the layout for business cards - instead of just printing one, how can I print a sheet?

I paid $13 to print 5 sheets each of two business cards at Kinko's so I'd like to print the rest on my own at home. ;)

Any suggestions, thanks!

just use a letter sized space... 8x10inches.. and have each card measure about 5x9 cms... that's how I make mine... then just print...

it's easier with corel.. but you can copy your card there and just duplicate it ... you'll have 10 cards per sheet... if you need further help.. just ask...;)

Well what you could do is design one business card in the right canvas size. Then once you have that, flatten the layers (save a psd file first, of course). Then c&p the flattened layer onto an 8.5x11 document until you fill up the whole page. You could use the rulers/guides to make a grid for them so they're easier to cut out.

Check out Avery Labels. They have many variations, including business cards, with exact measurements.

I got 250 from Vista Print. They're cheap and alot easier to create than Photoshop. In my opinion anyway.

I also applied to the State to make sure no one else has my business name "Fur-Nanny 911". No one does or will be able to get it from now on.

Once I get them (they are being shipped) I'll make more on my own. It'll only cost me business card stock then.
