Business Card Sizing

Business Card Size Guide for Free Business Cards Creator

You can put anything you want on the cards, but obviously, the space is limited. Using the blue guide bars is an easy way to ensure your cards will print out correctly. You don't have to use the entry spaces for that which they are labeled. When making your free business cards, as long as the card is not longer or wider than the blue bars, they will print out just fine. Also, be sure that the blue bars are touching each other in the corner. That they are not separated as shown in the picture below. If any of these problems exist, we will tell you about several ways to correct them below.

What if the size is wrong?

  1. Reduce the number of words or letters on each line of your card. You can probably see which line is causing the problem. Shorten the text on that line.
  2. Reduce the size of your typeface by choosing a lower-numbered font on the Fonts page. Each section is labeled and is separately adjustable.
  3. If you have made your text bold you can try unchecking the bold box, bold letters are larger than normal-weight letters.
  4. Italic fonts take up more horizontal space than normal fonts. Try unselecting the italic option and see if that helps.
  5. Also, some fonts are more compact than others. You can experiment using different fonts.
  6. Another thing to try is to change to a different style. Some of the styles offer more space on the lines than others.
  7. The logo also uses space on the card. If the logo is too large it can make the cards too wide or long. An average size would be 50 X 50 pixels. Use a smaller logo, a logo with a different shape, another style or, no logo.
