Creating a custom business card template gives you the advantage of being able to add your own graphics, logo and company information to your calling card. Designing a business card template takes some thought and planning to ensure you achieve a high-quality result that will leave a favorable impression on present and future customers. You can move the creative process along and save time by basing your new business card template on an existing Word template. Another option is to create a template by using the Labels feature in Word.

Open Word and click File on the application toolbar. Click New and select Business Cards from the template list.

Choose the template closest to the look you want for your business card and click Download.

Customize the graphic and insert your own logo or image. Click on the graphic, then click Insert and Picture. Choose the graphic you want to use and click Insert. Resize the graphic as needed by dragging on the handles. Copy and paste the graphic to each card in the template.

Print a test page. Make any necessary adjustments and print another test page. Continue this process until you are completely satisfied with the result.

Save your custom template by clicking File and Save As. Enter a filename in the File Name field. Click on the Save as Type down-arrow and select Word Template (DOTX) to save your template.

Open Word and click on Mailings. Click Labels, then click Options.

Click the Label Vendor drop-down arrow and select a business card manufacturer. Select the Product Number and click OK.

Type your information into the business card. Press Shift+Enter between lines that you want to keep together so theyll be easier to format later.

Highlight the text and right-click with your mouse. Select Font from the drop-down menu and choose the font face and size for your text.

Highlight the text again, right-click and select Paragraph from the drop-down list. Make adjustments to your alignment, indentation and spacing as needed.

Confirm that the Full Page of the Same Label radio button under Print is checked, then click the New Document button to generate a full page of your cards.

Click on the Insert tab to add graphics. Choose Picture, find your logo and then click Insert. Adjust the graphic size by dragging using the picture handles.

Reposition the graphic as desired by right-clicking on the image and selecting Text Wrapping to set how the text flows around the graphic. Adjust the placement by right-clicking on the graphic and selecting Text Wrapping and More Layout Options.

Copy and paste the graphic to the remaining cards on the page.

Test your template by printing it on card stock. Make any final adjustments.
