How to Make Borders on Business Cards in Word

By Elizabeth Mott

Add some style to your business cards with border treatments.

If you produce your own business cards in Microsoft Word and print them on card-weight stock, you can add the polished or decorative look of a bordering outline to your cards to frame the information you present. Combine a Word template with the software's text box features to style your cards with the border treatment and color you select. Using a prefabricated file enables you to match your output to the ready-to-print card stock you've purchased.

Download a template that matches the business card stock on which you plan to print your cards (see Resources). These templates automatically accommodate the pre-perforated heavyweight paper that separates into eight or 10 individual cards per sheet. Open the template in Microsoft Word.

Click the "Insert" tab on the Microsoft Word ribbon and locate its Text group. Click the "Text Box" button and choose "Draw Text Box."

Click and drag on top of the table cells that form individual cards. Draw your text box starting slightly inside the top and left margins of the first table cell, and ending slightly inside the right and bottom margins.

Click the "Format" tab and locate its Shape Styles group. Click "Shape Outline" to open a menu from which to choose a color and weight for your text box. Type the text for your business card inside the text box.

Click on the border of the box to select it. Press "Ctrl-C" to copy the text box. Click outside the text box and press "Ctrl-V" to paste the copy. Click and drag to move the duplicate into position. Repeat the steps to position additional duplicates until you fill out the template.




  • If your borders don't appear when you print your cards, verify that you haven't deactivated the "Print Drawings Created in Word" check box in the Printing Options section of the File tab's Options.
  • To make your border dashed or dotted, use the Dashes option in the Shape Outline menu.


  • You can add borders to the individual cells of the template's table, but the thickness of the border will extend outside the cells and overlap onto an adjacent card.
  • Information in this article applies to Microsoft Word for Windows. It may differ slightly or significantly with other versions.

Publisher makes it easy to produce effective business cards, whether you create your own design or use one of the Publisher designs. You can use color schemes and font schemes to select the colors and fonts that reflect your company's image. You can further customize your business cards for specific market segments or locales, and you can add names and job titles for new employees as your business grows.

What do you want to do?

Design your business card

When you start to design your business card, it is helpful to select your printing method — such as spot color or process colors if you plan to print your publication at a commercial printer — so you can plan ahead for any printing issues that may affect your design decisions. The business cards that you design in Publisher can be printed on your desktop printer or taken to a commercial printer, depending on your needs:

  • You may want to take your design to a commercial printer if you have to precisely match a specific color, if you need a large quantity, or if you need precise alignments or folds. Commercial printers have sophisticated machinery and offer a variety of papers, inks, varnishes, and other options.

  • You can get great results with a desktop printer, too. Using a desktop printer gives you the flexibility to change your business cards at any time to better fit your needs. Most office supply stores carry prescored card sheets in a range of colors and specialty papers that have preprinted designs.

No matter how you choose to print your business cards, remember to include these basic elements:

  • Your company name and logo

  • Your name and title

  • Your mailing address and phone and fax numbers

  • Your e-mail address

  • Your Web site address (URL)

    Note: If you know that you will be printing on a specific manufacturer's product, scroll to the specific manufacturer's section, and click the product that you will be using. If the product that you will be using is not listed, follow the procedure below.

  3. Under Customize, do the following:

    • Select a Color scheme and Font scheme.

    • Click the drop-down menu under Business information and click Create new to automatically populate each card with the same information.

Set up business cards for a specific manufacturer's product

If you purchased business card sheets from a specific manufacturer, you can set up your business card in Publisher so that the dimensions match the card sheets when you print the cards.

  1. In the Page Design tab, click Size, and then click More Preset Page Sizes.

    Screenshot of the More Preset Pages Sizes option on the Page Design tab in Publisher.

  2. In the Preset Page Size dialog box, scroll down to the Business Cards section, find the specific manufacturer that you want, and then click its name.

    Note: If you can't find your specific manufacturer or their specific product, carefully measure the size of the business card that you want to print on, being sure to exclude that portion of the card that doesn't get printed on. Click Custom Page Size, and then type the business card dimensions in the Custom Page Size dialog box. For more information about setting up a custom page size, see Custom Page Size dialog box.

    Tip: Using Publisher ? In the Format Publication task pane, under Business Card Options, click Change Page Size. In the Page Setup dialog box, scroll down to the Business Cards section, find the specific manufacturer that you want, and then click its name.

  3. Click the specific page size that you want, and then click OK.

  4. Before you print on your card stock, practice with some plain test sheets to make sure your business cards are printed the way that you want.

Add your text

  • To replace the placeholder text with your own text, click the placeholder text and then type.

Note: If you stored your business contact information in a business information set, and you select a business information set, it will automatically populate your business card. To edit your contact information or replace your business contact information with a different business information set, click Business Information on the Edit menu.

Change the size of text

In most cases, the text is resized automatically to fit within a placeholder text box. However, you can manually adjust the text size.

  1. Click the text box.

  2. On the Text Box Tools Format tab, point to Text Fit, and then click Do Not AutoFit.

  3. Select the text, and then choose a new font size from the Font Size drop-down on the Text Box Tools Format tab.

Tip: Using Publisher ? On the Format menu, point to AutoFit Text, and then click Do Not AutoFit. Select the text, and then choose a new font size from the Font Size list on the toolbar.

Replace a placeholder logo with your own logo

  1. Click the logo placeholder, pause, and then click the placeholder picture again to display the Insert Picture toolbar.

  2. In the Insert Picture dialog box, browse to the location with the logo that you want to insert into the publication, and then double-click the picture. Publisher will automatically size the image to fit.

Note: If you have included your logo in a business information set, and you select that business information set, the logo is added to new publication automatically.

Tip: Using Publisher ? Click the logo placeholder, pause, and then click the placeholder picture again to display the Picture toolbar. On the Picture toolbar, click Insert PictureButton image. In the Insert Picture dialog box, browse to the location with the logo that you want to insert into the publication, and then double-click the picture. Publisher will automatically size the image to fit.

Create a two-sided business card

The back side of your card is a great place to add information to make it easier for customers to do business with you. You might want to include any of the following:

  • Map of your business's location

  • Driving directions

  • Coupon

  • Special discount for a referral

  • Company motto

  • Product list

  • Translation of side one into another language

Add information to the back of your business card

  1. Complete the steps for creating a one-sided business card.

  2. In the Pages navigation pane, right-click the existing page and select Insert Page.

    Insert Page on the Pages navigation pane in Publisher.

    Tip: Using Publisher ? On the Insert menu, click Page.

  3. In the Insert Page dialog box, click After current page, and then select any options that you want.

    For example, if the second side of your card will display the company motto, you may want to click Create one text box on each page. If the second side will include a translation in a different language, you may want to click Duplicate all objects on page, so that all of the colors, graphics, and text are available on the second page.

  4. Add the text, images, and other information that you want to appear on the back of your card.

  5. When the back side of the business card looks the way that you want, save the file.

Before you print your two-sided business cards

If you are printing two-sided business cards on your desktop printer, test your design on plain paper first, for the following reasons:

  • Desktop printers often don't align two-sided documents precisely. This is especially true if your printer does not support duplex printing and requires you to manually reinsert the paper to print on the second side.

  • To be printed correctly, front to back, the page margins of your card layout must be even (as they are in the default layout of 10 copies per sheet). If you have customized the spacing for margins or gaps, or if you have changed the Copies Per Sheet setting, the fronts and backs will be harder to align.

Print business cards on a desktop printer

  1. Open the business card document that you want to print.

  2. Load the printer with the paper that you want to use to print a test sheet.

  3. Click File > Print.

  4. Under Printer, choose the printer that you want to print to.

  5. Under Settings, go to Pages and select either One page per sheet or Multiple copies per sheet.

    Important: If you selected a page size for a product from a specific manufacturer, the options for that product are already set up.

    Tip: Using Publisher ? On the File menu, click Print. On the Publication and Paper Settings tab, choose the printer that you want to print to. Under Printing options, click One page per sheet or Multiple copies per sheet. Under the Preview window, click Show how to insert paper, and then click Run the Two-Sided Printing Setup Wizard. The wizard collects information about your printer to help you determine which way you should insert the paper to test your publication. This is helpful even if you are printing a single side of a publication.

  6. Click Print to print a test sheet, and then make any adjustments that you want.

  7. Load the printer with the paper or the manufacturer's card stock that you want to print on.


  • Publisher will automatically set up your business cards to be printed correctly, whether they have landscape or portrait orientation.

  • Unless you customized the size of your card or chose a specific product from a manufacturer, Publisher defaults to the standard business card size of 2 inches by inches.

Change the number of copies per sheet

To change the number of copies that are printed per sheet, do the following:

  1. Click File > Print.

  2. Under Pages, Select either One page per sheet or Multiple copies per sheet.

    If you choose the Multiple copies per sheet option, you can change the number of copies per sheet by changing the Copies of each page.

Tip: Using Publisher ? On the File menu, click Print, and then click the Publication and Paper Settings tab. Select either One page per sheet or Multiple copies per sheet.

After you create your business cards

Successful marketing requires communicating the right image of your company to your potential customers — and then continuing the relationship after the initial contact. Business cards are a key tool in those efforts. In addition to serving as a convenient reminder of your contact information, a business card introduces your company and reinforces your company's image. A business card is also invaluable in building and sustaining word-of-mouth marketing.

But business cards don't do any good hiding in your desk, so get them circulating!

  • Offer business cards to your customers every time you see them, not just the first time.

  • Give business cards to every person in a group, not just the boss.

  • Hand out two cards, not just one. Ask the recipient to pass the extra one on to someone else.

  • Enclose two cards with every letter, birthday or holiday card, and thank-you note.

  • Include two cards in every media kit.

Tips for Customizing the Business Card Template

Editing your Business Card

TEXT: When you open the file, you'll see that only one of the business cards contains text. You will only need to edit a single business card, because you'll be copying/pasting later on.

GRAPHICS: We realize that one of the main things you'll want to do with these templates is choose your own color scheme, so we tried to make that simple by grouping all of the drawing objects (lines, background colors, etc.) so that you can change colors all at once. Hint: You can click on the "Show/Hide ¶" button to view anchor points and tabs. You may need to use the Selection tool (the Arrow) to select some objects.

Adding a Logo to the Business Card Template

When using Word, inserting drawing objects and images can mess things up, and sometimes it does in fact take an expert to figure out why things are going wrong.

I don't guarantee that the following steps will work in all versions of Word, but hopefully you'll get the main idea and be able to format the objects and images as needed.

In Word :

  1. Place the cursor inside of one of the business cards.
  2. Go to Insert > Picture > From File to insert your logo.
  3. Double-click on the image that you just inserted into your business card or go to Format > Picture. If you are inserting or editing a drawing object, select it using the selection tool and then go to Format > Object.
  4. In the Format Object or Format Picture dialog box, go to the Layout tab and select Behind text or In front of text (under Wrapping style).
  5. In the Layout tab, click on the Advanced button, which will take you to the Advanced Layout dialog box.
  6. I usually set the vertical alignment to Absolute position of X" below the Margin. Also make sure Allow overlap and Layout in table cell are selected. We have found that positioning objectives relative to the Page leads to the greatest compatibility between versions of Word and OpenOffice.

Copy Your Business Card

We designed our templates so that you can edit a single business card and then copy it to the rest of the business cards on the page. Each of the business cards represents a cell within a table. It is important that you select the entire contents of the cell.

  1. Put your cursor inside one of the business cards.
  2. Go to Table > Select > Cell
  3. Press Ctrl+c to Copy
  4. Press Tab to move to the other cells in the table if you are using the up version, or use the mouse to click in the other cells if you are using the 8-up version.
  5. Press Ctrl+v to Paste

Print a Test Page

What you see on your screen may not be what you see when you print (especially if graphic objects are used), so before printing out sheets of unusable business cards, test on a regular piece of paper.

> Looking for Cheap Business Cards? Create them yourself

Composing your own business cards has become an easy option with the availability of computers with common software. Doing it yourself will save time and money and is particularly viable when small quantities or temporary business cards are required. A simple way to do it is to purchase business cards design programs available at office supply retailers or to use computer software like Word, Photoshop or CorelDraw, as these allows business card or label creation templates. Effortlessly create business cards by adding texts, logo, borders, background, etc. Once the card has been designed, name and save the file. You may also see wedding cards.

> Save a few bucks by Printing Cards yourself

For printing the cards you have created, you will require business card sheets and an ink jet or laser printer. Business card sheets are available at office supply stores in varied color and finish options to choose from. Usually a maximum of ten cards can be printed on each sheet. Open the file containing the business card templates and select the print command. It is advisable to print one sheet first to ensure the card design is lined up and prints properly. Once you are satisfied with the results, print the remaining required quantity of cards.

> Things to remember if you plan to Self Design

Studying other people’s business cards will be of great assistance while designing your own card. One can look out for an innovative design or element in the cards and implement them on his/her own card. If the font used in the card makes it difficult to interpret the writing, if the poor quality of the card has a negative impact on you, if it is time-consuming to find the information you are looking for in the card, remember these points and avoid using them on your own card. Ensure that your business card is a positive reflection of your organization.

> Ensure proper management of space while designing

The usual size of business cards is ’’x2’’. Since the space is a constraint, it is important to utilize the available space judiciously. Including too much information can make the card look clumsy. Therefore, incorporate only necessary and important information like Company Logo and contact information. The size of the text and the logo should also be chosen carefully. Neither should the logo be too large nor should the writings be so small that reading becomes strenuous.

> Using right Colors help portray a Professional and Memorable Image

Colors have great psychological impacts on people. Color and texture have the power to appeal and the ability to convey the image of a company. Therefore, choose the right color to communicate the appropriate message to clients. For example, if you are graphic designer, use bright, vibrant colors to attract attention and display creativity. If yours is a financial company, use colors such as gray or blue, with preferably white or Geometrical Backgrounds to express professionalism and reliability.

> Two important Bs to consider-borders and bleeds

If you are making your own card, it is better to avoid bordering your business card. The reason behind this is that even tough the border might look perfectly symmetrical on screen, after printing the border might become uneven because of the minute movements in printing machines. Due to the same reason, printers also require you to leave a small, spare area around the edges of the cards. The minimum area should be 3mm. You may also see Women Day Cards.

> Cheap alternatives for obtaining Professional Business Cards

1. VistaPrint: one of the leaders in creating business cards, VistaPrint became popular by offering extremely cheap cards of batch size and a free trial of cards for new users. 2. Moo: creates double sided business cards, printed in full color at no additional cost. One can select from a range of free professional business card designs available and personalize them with own inputs.You may also see blank place cards. 3. Overnight Prints: their aim is to provide superior quality using waterless Printing Technology and eco-friendly materials and methods. Their specialty is on-time delivery, array of finishing options and quick online orders.

> Why Cheap Business Cards are not always a good choice?

Business cards provide the first opportunity to make positive impression of your organization on the minds of prospects and clients. Professional Business cards reflect company’s image and hence their importance can not be disregarded. Online do-it-yourself business card printing companies have become very popular. However, there are some drawbacks of self-designed cards. Their design and quality of print and paper may be substandard. It often becomes simple to recognize cards that have been made economically. Therefore, cheaper business cards are not always a better option as it can cost you in the long run. You may also see graduation name cards.
