Business Card Set-ups

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Marion Sherman Howard, Aug 3, 2003.

  1. You've all been *such* a great resource, that I've got another
    question for you. ;)

    I'm setting up my own little web design business, I have my logo,
    etc., now I need business cards.

    Advice/suggestions on what software to use? Could I do the whole
    thing in Photoshop? (I have version 7.) Would it be wiser to use a
    template with a word-processing program? What dpi/resolution is best
    for using my photoshop image for a business card?

    Any words of wisdom you have to offer would be appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Hi Marion;
    You will get lots of people telling you programs
    like Pagemaker which is an excellent program. If you have it in your budget
    ....go for it. I'm a professional portrait photographer and I use MS
    Publisher 2002 XP for all my printing needs including business cards. You
    type up one and set it for the card brand & number you are printing on. I
    find that I get a good result using 250 ppi the same, as all the pro color
    labs want for digital photos. Do any image work in Photoshop and then after
    saving, open & drop in Publisher or whatever program you settle on. Or if
    you want to wait to buy a program may want to try using a place like
    Kinkos. You can rent time on their computers and do up your business card
    there. They have Publisher plus I'm sure other DTP programs as well . Then
    you could have them print it for you ...or have a disc burned & print it at
    your business. In my studio , I like preperforated Avery Business cards.
    They break apart easily and leave no edge residue. Good luck ;

    I prepared the image in Photoshop then used Word to do the printing. Word
    has templates for Avery business cards that make the printing setup easy.
