Creating a business card in Microsoft Word is a simple task that even the most novice of computer users can accomplish. You can create a basic business card using one of the pre-made templates that come with the program, or you can create a more custom design by adding your own images and text.
What You Need
Creating a business card in Microsoft Word is a quick and easy process. You can make a business card in any version of Word, though the specific steps may be slightly different. All you need is a computer with Microsoft Word installed, and some basic information about your business and contact information.
Once you have all of the necessary information, open Microsoft Word and choose to create a new document. You can either start from scratch or use one of the many business card templates that are available online. If you start from scratch, be sure to create a document that is 3.5 inches by 2 inches, which is the standard size for business cards.
After you have created your document, it’s time to start adding your information. Begin by adding your name, job title, and company name. Then, add your contact information including your phone number, email address, and website. Be sure to include any relevant social media handles as well. Finally, add any other relevant information such as a logo or tagline.
Once you have all of your information entered, it’s time to format your business card. Start by choosing a font that is easy to read and professional looking. Then, use alignments and spacing to evenly distribute the text on the page. You may also want to add some color or design elements to make your business card stand out even more.
When you are satisfied with the way your business card looks, save it as a PDF or JPEG file so that you can print it out later. Alternatively, you can take your business card directly to a printer for professional printing services.
Setting Up Your Document
Open up a new document in Microsoft Word and go to File > Page Setup. In the Page Setup menu, change the orientation to Landscape and make sure the margins are set to 0.5 inches on all sides. This will give you a large enough work area to design your business card while still keeping it within standard print sizes.
Next, create two text boxes by going to Insert > Text Box. One text box should be 2 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall, and the other should be 3.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall. You can experiment with different sizes, but these dimensions will produce a standard-sized business card when printed.
Now you’re ready to start designing your business card!

If you want to upload your own logo or image, click on the “Upload” button. This will open a new window where you can choose the file that you want to upload. Once you’ve chosen the file, click on the “Insert” button.

Adding Your Logo
If you have a Word document with your company logo, you can add it to your business card template. This will give your cards a professional look and help them stand out from the competition. Here’s how to add your logo to a business card template in Word:

Adding Your Contact Information
Adding your contact information to a business card is easy with Microsoft Word. You can either type in your information or use the built-in Contacts feature to automatically insert it.

Assuming you have all of your business card information ready to go, creating the card itself in Word is actually quite easy. The first thing you’ll need to do is open a new document in Word and set the page margins to 0.5 inches. Then, create a table with two columns and four rows. In the first column of the first row, type in your name. In the second column of the first row, type in your job title. In the first column of the second row, type in your company name. In the second column of the second row, type in your company’s website address. In the first column of the third row, type in your phone number. And finally, in the first column of the fourth row, type in your email address.
Once you have all of that information entered into the table, you’ll want to center everything and make sure it looks nice and neat. To do that, just select all of the cells in the table and then go to Table Tools > Layout > Center (in the Alignment section). Then, to add some more visual interest, you can change the font or font size for each piece of information. And that’s it! You now have a professional-looking business card that you can print out on your own printer at home.
Printing Your Business Card
Creating a professional business card doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. You can easily create your own business cards in Microsoft Word.
To get started, you’ll need a stack of blank business cards and a printer that can print double-sided. you can also purchase special paper that is perforated for easy separation into individual cards.
Once you have your supplies, open Microsoft Word and create a new document. In the top left corner of the document, click on “File” and then “New.” This will bring up a list of templates to choose from. Select “Cards” and then “Business Cards.”
This will Bring up a number of different layouts to choose from. select the one you like best and then click “Insert.”
You’ll be prompted to enter your information into the fields provided. Make sure to include all of the important details, such as your name, title, company name, address, phone number, email address, and website. Once you’re finished, click “Print.”
Now all you need to do is separate your cards and hand them out!
Alternative Printing Methods
There are a few alternative printing methods you can use to create your business cards. You can use a service like Moo or GotPrint, which will print your cards for you. You can also print your own cards using a printer and some cardstock.
If you want to print your own business cards, you’ll need to have a good quality printer and some thick cardstock. You can find cardstock at any office supply store. Once you have your supplies, you’ll need to design your business card in Word.
To do this, open a new document in Word and choose the “Business Cards” templates from the available options. From here, you can choose from a variety of different designs. Once you’ve found one you like, you can add your own information to the template.
When you’re finished, save the document and then print it out on your cardstock. You may need to use scissors or a paper cutter to trim the edges of your cards.
Now that you have your business card designed and ready to print, it’s time to think about how you’re going to print it. For the best results, we recommend using a professional printing service. However, if you’re on a tight budget or you just want to see how your design looks before you commit to a larger print run, you can print your business cards at home using a laser or inkjet printer.
To print your business cards at home, start by selecting the correct paper stock. Business cards are typically printed on thick cardstock (100-pound cover weight or heavier), so make sure you select a heavy-duty paper option in your printer settings. Once you have the right paper loaded into your printer, open your business card design in Microsoft Word and select File > Print. In the Print dialog box, select the number of copies you want to print and then click OK.
