Do-It-Yourself Business Cards With Geopaper

by Danielle Hamill; Updated September 26, 2017
Having a business card handy at all times is ideal.

GeoPaper by Geographics is a type of high quality publishing paper. You can print copy on GeoPaper using an InkJet printer, Laser printer, or copy machine. You can hand write on GeoPaper as well. GeoPaper is sold in the United States, Europe and Australia. While it is recommended that you print your do-it-yourself business cards on cardstock, which is a thicker type of paper, GeoPaper is a great option for when cardstock is not available to you.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word on your computer.

Step 2

Select “Enveloped and Labels” from the “Tools” menu if you are working in Word 2003 or earlier, or “Labels” from the “Mailings” tab if you are working in Word 2007 or later.

Step 3

Select “Options,” and when the “Labels Vendors” list appears, choose “Microsoft,” then choose “Business Card” from the “Product Number” box.Click “OK.”

Step 4

Enter the text you would like to appear on your business card (such as your company name, address, and phone number, your name, and e-mail address) into the “Address” box.

Step 5

In the “Print” box, which appears just below the “Address” box, select whether you would like to print a “Full page of the same label” or a “Single label.”

Step 6

Make sure your GeoPaper is loaded into your printer, then select “Print.”

Tips

  • If you would like to print a page of business cards, but enter different information on each card, you can manually edit each card by selecting “New Document” instead of “Print.” A full sheet of the business cards you have created will appear as a New Document, and you will be able to make changes to each card individually.
