Help with making business cards is a top request from Microsoft Office users, and doing so has
never been easier! You can choose from two ways to create attractive and professional business
cards quickly using Microsoft Word 2002:

        Use ready-made business card templates from the Microsoft Office Template Gallery.

— or —

        Create your own business cards from scratch with the Envelopes and Labels dialog

Choosing the right paper
You can either have a professional printer print your business cards or you can purchase paper
and print them yourself at home. For home printing, Avery® is a popular do-it-yourself brand
and provides standard business card paper: 2" X 3.5" cards on 8 1/2" X 11" heavyweight
cardstock sheets. The tiny perforations in the sheets allow you to separate your business cards
easily with professional results.

If you choose ready-made business cards from the Template Gallery, look for the Avery product
number listed with the template. If you use the Envelope and Label feature in Word, the dialog
box shows the product numbers for the Avery business card size you need.

   Choose the business card paper you want from the Product number list. The Label
information area to the right shows a description of each paper or label type you select.
