Can anybody recommend a freeware programme to design a Business Card?

Iím just looking for something simple that will save the design and possibly allow a printer to copy from it.

Iíve downloaded a couple that are supposed to be free, but you canít save your work without paying.

Seeing I only wish to design One Card that I can take to the printers I donít see the point in spending money on an expensive programme.

All comments appreciated. :thanks

I'm guessing you don't have MS Publisher?

You can do them In MS Word , open office if you have them.

Other wise a good FREE ( and yes it is free) publishing program that will do them is Page Plus SE (http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/software/pageplus/), or get the full version for $9.99 USA.

No, can't find Publisher although I have Office XP Pro.

Must be about the only Microsoft programme I don't have. :blush:

Got Word but can't see anything about Business Cards in the Help section. :confused:

PagePlus is good, also OpenOffice has templates etc if you can be bothered downloading that, it's around 140MB. If you did that, go to File -> New -> Business cards and there's heaps of options there.

We use to use "labels" in Microsoft word.

It's in Tools/Envelopes and labels. It gives the option of several types and sizes of card/label. You will need to be sure that your printer will be able to handle them.

Thanks Guys, the job is done. :thumbs:

Downloaded Wainuiís tip, Page Plus SE and no problem. :)

Looks like a neat little programme.

Will still have a play with Word, just to expand my very limited knowledge of the product. :D

I knew I could rely on you guyís. ;) :thanks

The only problem with Page plus is its not compatible with MS publisher - apart from that - its actually quite good - and the price is right :)

ALSO have a look at these LOTS of Free Templates (http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/software/pageplus/design_packs.asp#1) to add to the program. ( even dedicated Business cards) might need to scroll up a little to see them all.

Hi B.M. my wife joined smilecity.co.nz and I notice they are giving away 250 cards free at present.

They walk you through what you want, pretty easy from memory.
