Transcript:Make Business Cards in Adobe IllustratorHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I'm going to show you how to make a business card in Adobe Illustrator.
Choose a Business Card TemplateFirst open Illustrator. I'm using Illustrator CS 2. Go to 'File' and choose 'New' from Template. In the window, you can choose what kind of business card you would like to make. Click on blank templates. You can see there are 4 different blank business cards. Today I'll use one of the templates. Click 'new.'
Add Text and Images to the Business CardNow select the type tool and change all the text to your information. To add a logo or photo, go up to file and choose 'open.' Open the image you want. It should be small and without a lot of detail. Click to select it so there's a box around it. Now go up to edit and choose 'copy.' Go back to your business card, and go to 'Edit' and click 'paste.' You can now position it anywhere you want on the card.
Adjust Your Business LogoI'll also change the color of my logo. When I'm finished, I'll go up to 'File' and click 'save.' Give your file a name, and click 'save' again.
