free business cards




I recently started selling on Etsy and I decided that it was probably time to get business cards.  I needed something cute, cheap and easily attachable to my products.  But I wanted something that was different than the typical old run-of-the-mill business card.  I am already a member of Picnik which is a photo editing site online.  It is free to use most of the tools on the site.  I though that if I could come up with a picture I like I could edit it to have my business name and site written right over the top.

So the first place I went was The Graphics Fairy.  She has hundreds of vintage images and they are all free. Isn't that amazing!

You can do it too!  It was so simple, all you need is card stock, computer, printer. 

So here is your business card tutorial:

1.  Pick an image and save it to your computer.


I choose this cute little princess

2.  Go to Picnik and upload the saved image. 

3.  Resize the image so it will function as a business card. {I set my image to 80% }

4.  Then go to the "create" section of Picnik's site and choose a font .  Add your business name and Etsy website name to the image. 

5.  Save it to your computer.



6.  Open up word and insert the edited image.  Copy and paste until the page is filled up.

7.  That's it!  Just copy onto card stock and cut out.

I'm also going to use these as price tags for craft shows!



Now go over to The Graphics's Fairy and make your own business cards.
