How to Print Business Cards in Word 2010

by

I recently posted the instructions on how to create business cards in Word 2011 and thought it would be a good idea to cover the same in Word 2010 as the steps differ enough to warrant a separate guide. So if you’re looking to create your own professional looking business cards in Word 2010, you’ve come to the right place.

The guide is intended to be used for printing business cards on normal paper, not business card paper. If you are using business card specific paper that is pre-cut from Avery or other manufacturers, download the template pertaining to the paper from Avery.com. If you have any comments or questions please use the comments form at the end of the guide.

Software/Hardware used: Word 2010 running on Windows 7.
