How to Print Calling Cards


Print your own calling cards to create a customized look at a low cost. By making your own calling card, you are able to change the information at any time and print smaller quantities than required by many printing companies. This will save you money if you do not use the calling cards on a regular basis or have the need to make frequent changes. Choose the information placed on the calling card carefully, since professional cards have a clean layout that is easy to read.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Word processing software
  • Business card stock
  • Printer
  • Create a calling card template using your word processing software or open a standard business card template in the software under the "create labels" menu. A business card has the measurements of two inches high by 3-1/2 inches. There will be 10 cards on each sheet.

  • Set up the calling card in the top, left-hand template box. Add the needed text and format the font type, size and color. Add an image, if desired, by clicking on the "Edit" toolbar and choosing image.

  • Verify the layout and design on the calling card is correct. Select the contents of the calling card by choosing the "Select All" option in the "Edit" toolbar. This will highlight the first template box in black.

  • Select "Copy" from the "Edit" toolbar to copy the information created in the first template box. Use the mouse to click in the second template box so the cursor appears. Paste the calling card information into the second template by selecting "Paste" from the "Edit" toolbar. Repeat this process for the 10 template boxes.

  • Verify the sheet of calling cards are set up as desired by selecting either the Print Preview option or Page View option. Make edits to the cards if needed.

  • Insert perforated business card stock into the printer or plain 110-weight card stock. Select to print one sheet of calling cards to verify the information prints correctly. Adjust the tags, if necessary, and print the desired quantity.

  • Tear apart perforated cards by gently folding the perforation points and pulling the cards apart. Cut card stock using a rotary cutter and ruler to make each card the same size.
