  1. On the left, click on the Add Image button and you will get the Add Image control box. Click on the Background button to get a new set of control buttons. Click on the From File button which will open the Upload to Avery box. Browse to your background graphic and click Open. Wait a few seconds as the graphic is placed into the layout.

    Notice that the image is centered behind the red rectangle. This red rectangle represents the trim line for the business card. Because we are using a print-to-the-edge layout, our background graphic should extend beyond the red rectangle. Repeat this step to add any detail design graphics. The detail design graphics are smaller and do not need to extend beyond the red line.

    Now we are ready to add your company or personal information to the design. We will be working on the upper left card in the layout and the other cards will update automatically. First, we need to zoom in on the card to get a better view. On the left, click on the Zoom button.

  2. Click on the Add Text button to get a new text input box. It will be at the top of the card. We will type your business name inside this box. First, we may need to reposition the text box.

    Place your mouse over the text box until you see a plus sign. Then, click and drag the box to position it where you want your business name to be displayed.

    Now, click inside the box, right-click and choose Select All from the pop-up menu to highlight all the placeholder text. Then, type in your company name to replace the highlighted text with your own. The text box will resize as needed to match your company name.

  3. If you wish to change the format of the text in this box, you will see the Format Text controls on the left. Use the drop-down menus to choose a font and font size. A nice font for a business card is Arial. For your company name use a size 14 and for the other information on the card use a size 8. You can also change the color and style of the text. When you have finished, click on the white area outside the business card to deselect the text box.

    Repeat this for all the information that you wish to add to the card.

    When you have finished the front of the card, click on the Back of Sheet button on the left to switch to the layout for the back of the card. Repeat these steps to customize the back of the card. Once you have customized your business card, click on the Next button.

  4. On the Print Your Project screen, you may want to read the printing instructions before you print your business cards. Also, run a test print on a plain 8.5 x 11 paper. You may wish to use the draft setting on your printer for the test print to save on ink. Compare your test print with the cardstock for alignment. If you need to make adjustments, click on the Troubleshooting button on the Print Your Project screen and follow the instructions.

Enjoy your business cards!
