You can buy perforated business cards that you can print at home.  I've tried them, they work okay.  The only drawback is that the edges are a little scruffy from being torn apart.  You can also go online to places like vistaprint.com.  They offer free business cards if you pay the shipping

i'm planning to print out my cards on cardstock, which is heavier than the perforated business card things. then cut them out with a paper trimmer. then decorate with a resistor or something (i sell nerdy jewelry and accessories). i'd order them, but at this point the business card design might change, so i want to make just a few.

I got six sheets of black and white business cards (10 on each page) printed out on the heaviest cardstock they have in Kinko's, and it was only $2!!!!  I don't know how much colour would cost, but the ones I got were really professional looking.  I designed my cards in Photoshop and had the resolution at 300 dpi.

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

try vistaprint.com. If you use their designs, and allow them to put their name on your card (goes on the back, I believe), you can get 250 for free. Their prices are also reasonable otherwise if you want your own custom design.

No matter what your card looks like, it's really the marketing you do that makes the impact. No image is ever enough.

Avery has improved their cards since the original idea came out. Currently, I use the clean edge business cards (http://avery.com/us/Main?action=product.HierarchyList&node=10211397&catalogcode=WEB01) because I can print out as many as I need at a time and they all come out with clean edges. Works like a charm...

However, I will say that if you come down with card that you don't plan on changing for a long time and you go through them quickly, the most cost effective method would be to get them printed at a printer on professional card stock in a large quantity. That's even cheaper than doing them yourself.
