    Here's another idea...

    I stumbled across Avery.com and downloaded a free program called Design Pro 5 Limited. It may take a little playing around with it, but it is a fantastic program for making business cards, as well as other things. It allows you to import your own graphics from your files, even digital pictures you have taken, and add text boxes where you want them. Just remember that anything you do to the master tab will be on all the rest. I actually made 2 different business cards this past year, one with information for my parents and another to give to teachers at workshops and trainings I attend. I made Punch Cards for different things I wanted my students to do (homework, bring their FROG BOOK every day, etc.) and when they had their card all punched they could trade it in for a prize from the treasure chest. At Christmas time I made business cards for my students with the ornament frame (in the program), imported pictures of them taken in front of our classroom Christmas tree, added the year and a sentiment. Then I laminated them so they could be sent in with cards to Grandparents, etc. They were a big hit. Hope this helps! :)
