Business cards in Publisher 03.

  24bitkid 19:17 02 Dec 2005

Designed a great business card for myself using MS Publisher 03, but can't remember how to print them out as business cards. I have the special business card paper.

Have done it before - but can't figure out what I did. Any hints available?

If by special business card paper, you mean the pre-cut stuff, I don't think Publisher will accomodate your needs. I've tried and tried to figure out whether Publisher (2000 in my case) can do what Word does and print to a pre-defined set of labels/cards. I find it a lot easier to use Word's Envelopes/Labels tool, in which you can customise and fine-tune the size/position of the cards. I know that's not what you really wanted to hear, given that you've already got a Publisher design, but it's the best suggestion I can give. The nearest option in Publisher is to print multiple cards per sheet (usually 8 or 10 I think, depending on their size) but I can no longer find this option despite my best efforts!

And the position doesn't appear to be adjustable (should have added.)

It's from Avery, who make labels, but you need Word, I think.

In Publisher make sure you have the task pane shown on the left (right click on toolbar, tick task pane), click on multiple copies per sheet, go to File/Print Preview, if you see is what you want, set your printer prperties and print them out.

I've had a look for that feature and I can't find it. The only toolbars that Publisher apparently has are Standard and Formatting. Is your suggestion specific to the 2003 version?

I am using Publisher 2002, but I'm sure it's common to all versions. Rightclick on a blank area of the toolbar, if Task Pane is not there click customize and open the toolbars tab, from there tick task pane and proceed as above.

Nothing like that in 2000. Here's a screenshot click here
