Default How to make nice affordable business cards

I am needing to make some business cards to leave at a local business but I don't want to order any so I thought maybe I could just make mine. Any suggestions on how to make some nice yet affordable business cards

if you have your own logo, I found that using the avery cards along with the templates on word has been pretty good for me thus far, I usually make a few with magnets on the back and display a few on the legs of my tent behind my cash register, also, hole punch then and attach them to my cello bags that I package up my bows in.

HTH!

PS: be aware that using this method will suck up a lot of your ink in your printer

at the cost of having to buy ink and cardstock paper you would have already just paid for shipping w/ vista print for 250 cards--they have a slow which will only be $5 shipping but the turnaround time will still be 1 1/2 weeks--it's worth it
the other option you have is to go through avery.com and design and make your own cards if you wanted to go that route too?, that's where i printed out my stickers to place on packages etc., but you can do the same for business cards if you really don't want to order. HTH

You could order a custom rubber stamp, cut card stock with a paper cutter, stamp, and voila!

I agree that the cost of cardstock and ink you might as well get them from vista print. I always get them from there when they have the free deals. I also got my logo from them.

I am new to the bow business and found Vista Print through the members here. I ordered cards, postcards and extra large postcards (I use them all to display my clips/bows by cutting a slit in the card and slipping in the clips/bows). I was THRILLED with the quality of the cards. And FREE - you can't beat that!
