    I don't. I do certain types of graphics for business cards in Photoshop,
    certain types in Illustrator, and make a final product in Indesign, which
    is made especially for that sort of task.

    Makes outputting a lot easier. Gives better results, too.

    Now - are you printing the cards yourself, sending them to a copy shop or
    to an offset printer?

    I'd do the photographic art work in PS, then size it and Save. Since I've used
    PageMaker for years, I'd Place the artwork in the sized area 2 x 3.5, in PM
    and then do the text. InDesign will work well for this, but I have not played
    with it enough, so I fall back to PM - note to self: need to spend less time
    in NG's and more with InDesign. When satisfied, just Ctrl-c, Ctrl-v, until you
    have filled the page (matrix of 2 x 5 in this case). Only caveat that I'd
    offer is if you have a background which is to print on each card, bleed it
    beyond the area of the card slightly. Depending on where the printing is to be
    done, you need to find out specs (for an outside source), or you can just
    print to the desktop printer. If desktop, you need to take the printable area
    limitations of your specific model into consideration. Avery makes a nice non
    -perforated business card sheet, though it might be a bit thick to feed into
    certain desktop units. Since my Epson can handle full bleed printing on 8.5x
    11, I just need to remember to set that in its Properties.

    You can do it all in PS CS, if you have a Postscript printer or RIP, but I
    still choose to go the two program route. For artwork (non-photographic), AI
    is my program of choice, then take that, pluse the PS work into PM for type
    and final output.

    Why are you using Photoshop? It is not a desktop publishing package which is
    what you need to use.
