How To Print Your Own Business Cards

Any company, big or small, would attest to the amount of time and money required for printing business cards. Vast quantities of the cards often have to be ordered, resulting in some of the cards not being used or worse, becoming obsolete when company details change. This no longer needs to be the case. With Tower’s range of office products, business cards can be printed instantly, at varying quantities and in the comfort of your home or office.

Here is a simple, two-step guide on how you can make your life easier, as well as save time and money, by printing your own business cards:

What you will need:
• 250gsm clean-cut Tower business card sheets
• Inkjet or laser printer
• Template disk downloadable from the Tower website or available on Microsoft 2007 and upwards.
• LabelArt software (optional)

Step 1: Design
Think about the look-and-feel you would like to achieve on your card as well as the required information before proceeding with the design. Once you are ready to design, visit the Tower site for software that will make designing your cards a walk in the park.

You can download any of the pre-designed templates from the wide range available on the Tower website. The range of templates will provide you with basic design capabilities.

If you want to design a business card with a more elaborate aesthetic, you can purchase LabelArt software, which comprehensively covers all aspects of desktop labelling. The labelling software includes over 600 clipart images and various drawing tools to choose from. A 30 day trial version of LabelArt can be downloaded from the Tower website.

You do not need to be a designer to do this, with features such as the unique text rotation tool , you can even rotate any line of text to any angle or place your text around an arch or circle.

The added bonus is that what you see on the screen is what you get so you do not have to worry about the quality of the printed cards.

Step 2: Print
The 10-up clean-cut sheets of cards ensure that you do not have to spend time, money or effort on guillotining your cards.  Just feed the A4 sheets into your inkjet or laser printer and print, once printing is complete simply peel the cards off the backing sheets and your done.

The fact that you print out the cards yourself means that you do not have to order 500 or 1000 cards at a time nor do you have to wait for a week for the order.  You can simply print out your desired quantity using your inkjet or laser printer whenever you need them. The bonus is that if your details change, you can simply go back to your machine, edit and print out more cards.

There is no longer a need to brief in a designer or deal with suppliers. Tower business cards are a wonderful innovative way of saving you time and money and making your life easier. All that is required is your imagination.
