Avery Tutorial: Printable Business Cards

You’re clicking … you’re clicking … you’re clicking ….

Still can’t seem to figure out how to print your business cards in Microsoft Word? Instead of just giving you the old “open Microsoft Word and figure it out”, here’s a rundown on how to print our business cards with no sweat involved (unless of course, you’re outside for some reason – it’s finally nice out WOO!).

Sorry, Northeastern problems.

Okay so where were we?

Ah yes, printing without the annoyance…

Using a template is pretty simple. For me, it was as easy as typing out my information and putting my sheet of cards in the printer. (Don’t worry, I will go step by step).


Avery Template (already in Word)

Go to Mailings Tab > Labels > Options

Under Label Options go to Avery US Letter. Under Product Number go to ‘8376′. To make sure it is correct, look to the right to find the dimensions. (3 1/2 x 2 is the standard business card size in the USA).

Now it’s time for typing your information out. Highlight what you want to change (let’s say your company name), right click, click font and change it up! Font, Font Style, Size, if you want it underlined, if you want a different color, if you want different effects, etc.

You can even center your company name by highlighting it, right clicking, clicking paragraph and next to alignment, clicking centered.

Place JAM printable business card sheets inside your printer, and click print! That’s it!

I searched business cards, not knowing the number and found a lot of choices!

Once you’re there, you can click either your own custom design or choose one of theirs. I chose one of theirs and starting playing around.

Not bad huh?

You can also add jpegs from Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator! Select the blank option and put your image in, again using the clip art icon. Just remember to use the best quality of the picture possible! This way it doesn’t come out all blurry.custom business cards, printable business cards
