DIY Business Cards

Designing your own business cards doesn't have to be hard!

I've created TWO templates in photoshop. The first is to design your actual cards and the second is for the entire page to be printed out. 

Not only was it a lot of fun to create my own but I felt fully accomplished after doing so. I was even able to leave them at a few stores for some old fashioned marketing! Now you can too :)

I am not legally allowed to give out some of the fonts in the file as I do not have the creative license to distribute them but Raleway is a free font license and Font Squirrel has a plethora of free fonts that are very similar. I did leave my fonts in there so if you wanted to get them you could at least see what the names are.

I personally adore them and they are my brand fonts that I stick to. Portrait Script is this lovely cursive font: 

And Blackhawk is this all-caps font that has an urban street feel to it. It provides a beautiful contrast to the cursive overlay.

To create your own business cards...

Use the templates below. In the first template you can design your business card to your own specifications. Then once it's saved you can duplicate your whole folder into the other template. You'll want to place that art into each folder section. Each section already has its own individual layer mask so you know you're in the right spot. 

Make sure you do a test print to see how you need to flip your sheet of paper and match them up in your printer. It should be the same across the board but who knows.

When you go to print your page make sure you are selecting the highest print quality.

(Both files are too large to put directly in Shopify so you'll have to download it from my dropbox.)


Some of the products I used with for my business cards are:

Cardstock Paper 120 Lb (This is the HEAVYWEIGHT good stuff)

Sunstar Kadomaru Pro Corner Cutter (Your fingers/hand will hurt after doing so many of these lol)

Keep in mind you can probably cut your business cards on the Silhouette or Cricut? But I haven't gotten that far yet... another time perhaps. For now though... we're going manual.

I used this: Firbon A4 Paper Cutter

My favorite printer yet that I use for stickers and basically everything:

Canon Pixma iX6820 Wireless Business Printer with AirPrint
