â¢ Doing your custom layout - The layout is actually the simplest to do if you know what you want. You can use a template to help you out in this. Office suites and desktop publishing applications usually have these kinds of templates, ready for people to use. You just have to load them up and then fill it up with information.
Make sure though that you choose the right template layout. It is good to look at different layout choices until you can choose the best one you want. Try to download a few new ones over the Internet as well for better choices. Once you have chosen, you can just enter the text and images that you want.
â¢ Writing your content - Writing your content is very simple and you do not have to be a professional writer to do it. Simply add your full name (with title if applicable) on the main name area of the template. Make sure that the job title is below it or near it.
Of course, it is crucial to write all your important contact details such as the phone number, mobile number, email address, website address and physical office address. Keep things simple and straight to the point so that people will get immediately what you need. If you have some extra space, add in your motto or your firm's slogan just for good effect.
â¢ Choosing the right kind of options - With your layout and content already done, you should now focus on the various options. Do you want a color business card or a plain white one with black ink? Do you want to use normal paper, or will you spend more on better quality glossy paper stocks? Do you want to emboss some parts of your business card, or are plain flat cards enough? Decide on these options one by one, so that you know what you want once printing starts.
â¢ Printing - Finally, you should be able to start printing after finalizing the options that you want. To make things easy for you, you can just hunt for a business card printing company via the Internet and then send them your designs for printing.

Those color ones should be professionally printed even though you did the whole design process. You can save a lot of money this way.
Great! You now know how to print business cards yourself. No more paying extra professional fees for design and writing for you! Congratulations!
