Making GDI Business Cards with Microsoft Word

If you would like to make your own GDI Business cards using Microsoft Word, there are instructions below.

If you are not a Word fan, you can also download free software from Avery to build cards using Avery standard stock paper which is available from most reputable stationers and office supply stores. You can either use Avery's online builder or download the free version of DesignPro5 and do it on your own machine at home.

If you would just like to buy cards online, you can get 250 business cards for free from VistaPrint. You just have to pay the shipping and handling.

The images we use in our Business Cards are in our business card gallery if you want to download them. If you want to put a small photograph of yourself on your card, we suggest having it professionally taken so you look your very best :).
