Pampered Chef: Business Card Formatting

  1. I am a new Kitchen Consultant and I need help...I am trying to format my business cards to print out myself. I am having a difficult time :confused: and was wondering if any one had it already set up? These are the cards from Town & Country...the one's with the different product pics.

    I appreciate anyone's help! :D

    Click on tools (across top)
    Click on Envelopes & Labels
    Click on Labels
    Click on Options
    Click Avery Standard and 8371 if you don't have 8371 click on 5371
    Click ok
    Click on New Document
    In the first card on the screen type in personal information wanted on cards
    Copy all text and past to 9 other cards on sheet
    Click ok
    Print a test sheet
    If it looks good then print as many sheets as needed

    *Hope this helps. I have directions for the old style...not the new style with the cool pictures (love those). Not sure if the numbers will be correct with the new style, but run it on a blank sheet and see if it works before you print onto your cards.

  4. Didn't Work

    Unfortunately, I did not work...these cards have the pics and the text is to be positioned differently. They give you instructions, but it is not working for me. I called Town & Country and they weren't very helpful...they told me that I could exchange them for the ones they print. It took me long enough to get these! I really can't afford to wait for more.

    Thanks for your help! Maybe somebody else has it formatted already.

    I was looking at the business cards, what if you choose the business card on Word and instead of having it to the left, have it justified to the right. It would like this:

    Name
    Address
    Phone
    Email
    Web​

    That would leave room for the picture. Centered might not leave enough room, but you could try. The thing you need the number for is the size of the business card. Or you could just play with the space bar until you get it spaced correctly.

    Let us know what you figure out.

    I have never purchased cards from Town and Country. I always get plain cards at walmart and put my information on them. I use printshop. My cards have an apron as the background.

    I am sure you already know this, but in case you haven't thought of it:

    print your practice cards on a plain sheet of paper and then lay it over your cards and hold it up to the light. You should be able to see through the plain paper to see if everything is going to look okay. I am sure it is just a matter of playing with the letter placement and your cards will look great when you are through.

    You might also look on the Nancy's Artwork site to see if they have a downloadable format that will work. FYI...I have ordered several things from Nancy's Artwork and they deliver fast and I have loved everything I have ordered.

    I have thought about ordering business cards from Nancy's. They seem to cost more, but by the time you figure in the ink and computer time the probably don't.

    Free Business Cards

    I was surfing the net and I found Vista Printing. You can choose from tons of different layouts, or you can make your own (you can upload your pics). There are certain ones that if you order they are FREE and you just have to pay for shipping. After that they send you e-coupons on what seems like a daily basis. I really like them, you can add info to the back. I like adding a small recipie or a few cool tips. Plus it is cheaper to order them rather then trying to get everything right and pulling your hair out over it!! Good Luck!!!
