Transcript:Create Business Cards with Microsoft PublisherHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing.
Today I'll show you how to create your own business cards using Microsoft Publisher. This is a great tool for any small business.
Finding Business Card ToolFirst open Microsoft Publisher. Now click Publications for Print. You may also start from scratch by clicking Blank Publication. But I will use one of Publisher's designs. In the subcategories find Business Cards.
Designing your Business CardsNow you can choose from their designs. Remember that you can always change the color schemes and fonts if you don't like the ones they have provided. Just double-click the one you want to open it up.
Notice the options in the left sidebar. You can include a generic logo they have provided. You can also change the orientation of the business card. It does change how the design is set up. You can also choose to print multiple copies on one sheet.
Business Card FontNow I would like to change the font because it is hard to read. I'll use the font schemes so all the fonts will look good together. Click font schemes on the left sidebar. Click any of the options to see them applied to your business card.
Business Card ColorsI'd like to change the color scheme. Click Color Schemes on the left sidebar. Click any of the options to see what they would look like with your design. If none of the color schemes suit your needs, click the Custom Color Scheme link at the bottom of the screen. A box will appear where you can choose your colors for what publisher calls an accent.
DeletingTo delete a text box or picture simply click the object and press Delete.
Business Card GraphicsYou can also insert pictures, clip art or your own logo from your computer. Just go to the picture icon and choose Picture from File. Find your logo or picture and click OK.
Now you can fix the size and placement in your document. To adjust the image, use the Picture toolbar.
