Yep, Business Card Composer for me too. I have also learned that Pages does a great job; I actually switch back and forth between Business Card Composer and Pages.

nearly all of the online card printers -- overnightprints, psprint, copycraft, uprinting, vistapress, etc -- have online templates to create cards with.

assuming shes not planning on doing crappy perforated cards through an inkjet.

overnightprints is running a special right now -- 70% off everything -- 100 double sided cards are $11 + shipping. these are really nice.

if budget isnt an issue, theres moo: [us.moo.com]

artie,

I've used Business Card Composer but another option is Design Pro from Avery. I've used Design Pro for lots of quick and dirty jobs at my office. Surprisingly handy and it's free. I like that they have templates for specific stock sizes. Need a template for Avery business card # X, it has a template for it. Very convenient though not as capable as Business Card Composer (or Swift Publisher or Pages, etc). But, free is a great price. smiling smiley

I forgot about the online printer services. I was just at a meeting, and a guy showed me his cards, 500 I think it was for about $5.00, or some such cheap price. Cheaper than I can print on my Canon color inkjet.

If you roll your own, use really good paper stock.

I've seen way, way too many home brew cards that look-- ok, except they're on flimsy paper Some would actually look pretty good if down on a decent weight paper.

In the good ole days, before they all died, we had some LW IIntx's, IIg's, etc. that I procured colored toner cartridges for... RED, BLUE, GREEN, and BROWN, in addition to the the standard black... made for printing some nice RYO business cards on those pre-patterned, microperfed, glossy business card card blanks. The hard coated glossy card stock made the laser printing appear raised, which was a nice added touch, and non-black toner added to the "professional" look. As to software, M$ Word sufficed. I'm sure the RYO wasn't the cheapest option, but it's fun, and lets you try a bunch of small runs to see what eventually delivers the desired impact.
