Cardworks Review and Overview

A wide selection of business cards templates comes included in the box, and you can also download additional free templates designs which are fully customizable. 

Design professional cards

The templates come with adjustable colour schemes and can be modified to be printed on single or double sides. You can add any amount of pictures or text that fit your design. Designs vary according to colour schemes, and a form interface is provided, which leads you to fill in all details and will take care of how the card looks on the chosen templates.

Tweak to your taste

Apart from the already available design templates, many more free ones can be downloaded and modified to fit your requirements. You can decide various properties such as margins and gaps to get the feel you want. Card Works support almost all paper sizes which are used in the printing industry, and you can choose which side you want to print on. You can also add a bleed area that will be trimmed off when the card is cut to final size so that the colour does not vanish.

Automate the design process

When using CardWorks, one does not read professional designing knowledge. An intuitive interface which shows all the properties on a single screen can be used to enter all details and modify how they look. Properties such as font, size, alignment of text and edge positions in the unit you prefer can be easily assigned and implemented on your card. Both forward and backward sides can have different designs and entirely different layouts. Text can also be aligned in different formats without worrying about crossing margins and lines.
