DIY Business Cards

Hi, friends! Today, for Tutorial Tuesday, I'm sharing a project with you from Elizabeth [EV Photo Chic]. If you'll recall, she also shared some freebies with us earlier this month. Now she's got a really useful tutorial for you. I really think you're going to like it!

{DIY Business Cards}

Many of you are small business owners, or aspiring small business owners. Part of running your small creative business is creating a strong brand image. For that, you'll need a few staples. One very important thing that many people don't think about right away is business cards and tags. This tutorial will give you a good base for getting started. For even more insight, please visit Elizabeth's blog.

What You'll Need:

  • Computer
  • Printer
  • Avery Clear Custom Labels
  • Shipping Tags


Steps: 
  • Create a 4x6 document in photoshop or another image editing software
  • Play around with the layout to create your desired label size and design
  • Once you've created your label, copy and paste the labels into a larger document (8x10) so that the document is almost full
  • Adjust your printer settings if necessary (these cards were printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper on the luster paper setting)
  • Use a straight edge and exacto knife to cut the cards
  • Peel the labels off the backing and stick them onto shipping labels
  • Add a personal touch! Use ribbon, yarn, or whatever to attach your tags 


I really think these turned out so well. I have business cards, but they're not quite this cute. I think I'm definitely going to try this one out. You should too!
