Draw up what you want it to look like and I will make a document file or a Picture file that you can get printed anywhere or print yourself. PM me and we will see what happens.

VistaPrint will give you free cards, but it has their logo on it and you have to select from their basic designs - no customization.

depending on the look you're going for, you can make them yourself.   just print out the text then photocopy onto cardstock.  i cut a little rubber stamp with my logo on it & use embossing powder.  then i can get a super-fancy look to it that didn't cost much!  and i like to change them, not my logo, but the format of my business card.  for a while they folded in half because i had so much info on them - i could never afford that professionally done!

where did you find the cool color of those cards? it looks metallic but i've never come across metallic cardstock. it looks great - i'm going to try the embossing powder idea with my cards. i wanted to print both sides but this might be a more cost effective option for right now. i have a stamp with my logo - can you give a quick tutorial on how to use the embossing powder technique?

i love that paper, it's from the PaperSource in boston:  http://www.paper-source.com/  the 8.5x11 stardream coverstock.  ink jet printers won't work on it, you have to use a classic office laser-type printer, a photocopier might work, too.  to stick the embossing powder i use a Color Box pigment stamp pad, it's really thick and doesn't dry well.  sprinkle the powder on, tap the excess off & funnel it back into the jar.  i finally bought a heat gun for $20 and it is amazing.  i can stamp & powder a ton of cards & then melt them all quickly.  otherwise, it takes some practice, but a small candle works great.  i've heard you can use an iron or the stove, but i've never gotten the hang of it!  'cause i make them myself, i can make little matching hang-tags to stick in the pockets of my stuffed animals.  i was going to post some explanatory pics, but, alas, the camera batteries are dead!

They have business card templates you can modify, and it's using Microsoft Publisher. It's free. They also sell injet printable business cards all in a sheet. You tear them on the perferated lines after printing them out.

www.maxcards.com these are more like calling cards but they are free and cute... you don't get many and they are all about the advertising, but maybe they will do in a pinch and they are absolutely free. ( I love a freebie!)  Grin
