After unzipping the file, you can then open the template in InDesign
It will look like the photo below along with guidelines (not shown in photo)
I prefer to design the business card in the left top card position. When you have it the way you want, use the step and repeat feature to copy the card to the other 9 positions.
I also recommend using the 3/16" (green) safe border.
When layout is completed as desired, delete the red, blue & green boxes by slecting with the Pointer Tool and pressing the Delete key on your keyboard.
Use step and repeat to copy card to the other 9 positions (see instructions below).
1. Select all text and graphics
2. Click Edit, Then Step and Repeat
Vertical Offset Settings
Repeat Count - 4
Horizontal Offset - 0 in
Vertical Offset - 2 in
This will give you a total of 5 cards in the left hand column of page
3. Select All Type and Graphics on Page
4. Click Edit, Step and Repeat
Horizontal Offset Settings
Repeat Count - 1
Horizontal Offset - 3.5 in
Vertical Offset - 0 in
You should now have cards in all 10 positions on the page
Your InDesign business card template is now complete and ready to be printed or sent to a copy/print shop.
1. Copy the InDesign file and all fonts and graphics that were used in the card layout to a folder on a thumb drive or writable CD/DVD
2. Create a PDF in case your copy/print shop doesn’t use InDesign.
Creating a PDF in Indesign
1. Click File - Adobe PDF Presets
2. Click Press Quality
3. Name the File
4 . Click Save
Save the PDF on the thumb drive or CD/DVD with your Indesign file and take to the shop.
Note - always put the fonts and graphics on the thumb drive/CD/DVD so all available resources needed to create your business card are available to the copy/print shop.
