Today I will show you how to create custom business cards and packaging even if you do not have a lot of graphic design experience.
You will need:
Photo editing software-I am using Paint Shop Pro but you can use the software you prefer like Photoshop or gimp or any image editing software.
Graphics/logos you want to use (watercolor graphics from http://gstock.co/x/TheFrugalCrafter0415 )
Computer and printer
Optional: Clear “cello” bags, laminator, scrapbook paper or kraft paper bags if making “grab bags” and any packaging supplies you normally use
1. Download any images and graphics you want to use.
2, For a business card create a new 3.5″x2″ 300dpi document.
3. Copy and Paste in graphics and add text. Arrange elements until satisfied. Save this file in your software’s native format to make editing easier later on, then flatten and save as a JPG to use in the next step.
4. Make a new 8.5:x11″ document and copy/paste in the business card 10 times. Tip: set up a .5″ grid and use the snap to grid feature to help line everything up.
5. Flatten and print your business cards.
6. Cut them apart.
You can repeat these steps in any size to create sheets of tags, labels and signage.
Next week I’ll show you how to make the cute business card holder!
