Here’s a snapshot of the 7 templates…

Business card size templates

I added a 0.25″ bleed to each dimension of each template. So the blue border within the document represents the business card’s actual size listed above. Everything outside of that blue border is bleed area that will be trimmed off. This is standard for printing business cards. I also made sure the business card size templates have a CMYK color profile, which is ideal for print. If you’re using Inkscape then you won’t be able to output a CMYK file directly. I’d suggest using one of these workarounds.

    So easy and logic (“document, document…”). I always had it before my very eyes, but I preferred to dive into every Preferences menu. Thanks a lot, Nick.

    Hi, Nick. Thanks a lot for these templates. How do you get that gray background? I see it’s not the real canvas when I zoom out, nor a rectangle. I can’t select it. I’d like to work that way, without a lot of white light on my eyes all time.

    Thanks!

      You can change the document background by going to Document Properties (control + shift + d). Look for where it says “background color” and click on the white stripe to change the color.
