I would like to make some hand-out cards with just my name, address and phone # that have a nautical look to them. New to this sort of thing and need help.
You can get the blank cards at walmart, staples or any similar store. If you have any kind of graphics program you may already have a nautical theme. If not just google it and you'll find plenty. There very easy to do.
You might go to avery.com type in business card template. They have a bunch.
I just recently made cards for my husband to take with him on a trip. Just delete what you don't need and print them out to say what you want. He was going to a Navy reunion so I printed some that had a water background and some that had a flag background. Just use card stock.

Vista Print occasionally runs an offer for 250 free business cards. You pay the shipping but I think the last time I got them there, it was about $5 for the S&H.
Vista is the way to go. They will give you 250 cards free (you pay shipping) as an introduction to their service. You could also go to Office Depot or any of the other Mega Office supply stores and buy a business card DIY kit which will have perforated cards (10 to a sheet I think) and a disk with simple point and click instructions. Be careful about what graphics you get from google. Many of them are copyrighted and you will never know until some one sues for copyright infringement. Another way to go though it Photobucket.com They advertise something like a billion graphics, clip art and photos online. Generally no copyright problems and if the owner has copyrighted something they are very willing to let you use it for a small consideration of telling people where you got it.
