freebies . calling cards

February 22, 2011 separator Free Printable

This month’s printable is a versatile one, folks! Lindsay gave me the original idea for calling cards. Which is what I used them for, as you can see in my example. However, please feel free to let your creativity run wild.

The steps are easy: 
  1. Add your text using software like Photoshop, GIMP, Photoscape, or online software at Picnik.
  2. Print your image on a regular 8.5×11 in. sheet of cardstock [or any paper that is a little heavier than copier paper].
  3. Cut along the gray lines.
  4. Voila! Hand those puppies out to anyone and everyone. 

Suggestions for use: 

Place cards, thank-you notes, book plates, gift tags, bookmarks, etc. 

If I had a young child, I would use these to jump start her spirit of entrepreneurship [you can never start too early, right? ; ) ]. Plus, what child wouldn’t love her own business cards?
