You can use OpenOffice to design business cards that are minimalist in design. The cards feature your name and some information about you or your business. There are a few designs available to users that have just downloaded OpenOffice, but you can find templates online that offer a wider range of color and art.
Open OpenOffice and click on “File” followed by “New.”
Select “Business Card” and then define the specifications that you want. Click “Sheet” to print on your laser printer.
Choose the brand of card that you will print on. By default, Avery A4 is enabled, which is a popular size. You can check the packaging that your business card paper came in to see the size.
Check your package for the type of paper used and select that from the drop-down for “Type.”
Click the “Business Cards” tab and then select the design that you want to use for your business card. You can also use the drop-down at the bottom of the window to select any existing business card templates that you may have on your computer.
Click the “Private” tab and enter all of your personal information. This step is technically optional, but if you want to use a personal business card design, it will look for information from this tab.
Click “Business” and enter the information related to your business.
Click “Format” and change the format of your business card by dimensions. Usually you will not want to change these settings, but your design may vary.
