I have a business card designed in Photoshop. I can't seem to get it into InDesign, Word or Avery's DesignPro so it fits the template for the cards I purchased at OfficeMax.
It's template #8371 from Avery. .75" margins on the left and right, .5" for top and bottom. Cards are horizontally 3.5" wide by 2" tall in a 5 row x 2 col layout.
I'm guessing that I am just doing one thing wrong. When I import them, no matter what format, they always seem to be blurry.
I'm willing to pay. Please PM me with your price and email address and I'll send over a ZIP with the files if you are selected. (It's the same design and process, but there are six people so I need it done six times so I have a template for each.)
ok,you have a design right? that you are looking at, in photoshop. Just go file, print, and mess with the options. It really isnt that hard to print from Photoshop, and if youare using a specific type of paper, i think it has options for dif. kinds of paper. AT least, my printer has options, like in the print drivers. Just toy with it a bit.
Okay, please don't act like I'm stupid. There are no options like that for my printer in Photoshop. They are there in InDesign which I use for printing but not in Photoshop. If you have nothing to offer, please do not act like I'm an idiot and take over the thread. I said in the beginning that I am going to pay someone to do it.
Mith07, I agree, you shouldn't act like the person is incompetent. I know many people who have issues with printing at home business cards and what not. Also, not everyone is familiar with the capabilities of certain programs. From my experience, Photoshop does not store templates so that it can be easily printed. Microsoft Word usually has templates accessible as well as Avery.
jml3188, what you could do is create a new Photoshop document and set all the margins manually for each section and number of cards per page. Then do a test print to see if your page lines up with the card stock. Should work out eventually. Good luck!
Well, I have the PSD. Even if I try and save it as a JPG, TIFF, PSD or EPS it comes up blurry or b/w in Word or InDesign. It comes up very small in Avery's software too. It's at 300 dpi in Photoshop. I don't get it but I'm messing around with your photoshop idea.
well, obviously, you can print from Photoshop, but just dont know how. As i said, play around with it. If you have a 4 x 6 card, and a 4 x 6 design, it should be pretty easy to get it to work. As azn_Chic said, you can make margins, or just add white space for margins.
Azn_Chic - Okay, thanks. I'll do a few test prints then.
Mith07 - It's not a 4x6 postcard.. they are business cards - 2x3.5. I don't think Photoshop, or maybe the drivers, allow you to setup formatting for printing the same image repeatedly on a page with a specific formatting.
i used 4 x 6 as an example...........................
alright, so you want to print like, 8 designers per page? lol, if its a sheet of like, 8 2 x 3.5, and it is on an 8.5 x 11, just copy the design 8 times on a 8.5 x 11 photoshop document. you might have to mess around with placement, but its easily done.
