How to Print the Front & Back of a Business Card in Publisher


Whether you're trying to infiltrate Corporate America or trying to jumpstart your freelance career, business cards should play a central role in your self-marketing strategy. With that in mind, why leave it to a company to design and print your business cards when you can use a software program like Microsoft Office Publisher to customize your own? With Publisher, you can select your own colors and fonts. Once you've finished designing your card, you can simply print it out on your home printer.

  • Open Publisher and create your business card using an original design or with an existing template. Once you've finished, make sure to save the card before attempting to print it. Double check that your printer is turned on and correctly configured. Also, make sure it has paper to print out a test sheet.

  • Go to the File menu and click "Print." Proceed to the Publication and Paper Settings tab and select the printer to which you will be printing. Look under Printing options and select either "One page per sheet" or "Multiple copies per sheet." Then click "Show how to insert paper" under the Preview window.

  • Click "Run the Two-Sided Printing Setup Wizard" to show you the proper orientation of the paper you'll be inserting into the printer. Next, click "Print" to print out a test sheet.

  • Verify that all the information on there is correct. It's important to print out a test sheet, as it will give you an opportunity to catch any mistakes you may have made and make any necessary adjustments. Once you're convinced that everything is in order, load the printer with card stock or whatever type of paper you would like to print your cards on.

  • Proceed to the File menu again, and click "Print" once more. Then, click "Print" again and wait for your cards to be printed out.
