Printable business card freebie

I've whipped up another printable template for use as calling cards or business cards. This time it's an argyle motif, so put on your sweater vest and nerd glasses and help yourself.

Choose from orange cards, pink cards, or blue cards.

To use them:
1. Click a link above and save the PDF to your computer. The file may take a moment to download, so please don't hyperventilate if your browser window remains blank for a moment.
2. Optional: The fonts used in the card design are Serif 6 Bold and Regular, available for free right here from Betatype. Download the .zip file and install these fonts on your machine (see here for how to install fonts). If you're not that picky, you can choose not to install the fonts. In that case, your computer will substitute a font when you open the file and it might look just fine.
3. Open the PDF in Adobe Reader (free) and type your information in the text fields.
4. Save.
5. Print the file at 100% on a sheet of white cardstock. Trim with an X-acto knife or scissors, using the crop marks as guides.

I betcha there will be a few questions based on the last calling card set I posted, so here are some answers:

Yep, I'm aware that one more row of cards could theoretically fit on this page, but my home printer needs 0.6" for a bottom page margin. That means the bottom row of crop marks won't print, which makes trimming much more difficult. Perhaps your printer is the same way, so I engineered these to be better safe than sorry.

Also, this template does not match any Avery business card stock templates. That stuff is a bit expensive and I didn't want to require anyone to buy it in order to use these.

Another beautiful set! I printed out one of your other freebies for my niece to use as gift tags/calling cards. I used heavy white card stock and my paper cutter and it worked out fabulously! Thanks for another great share!!
