DealBITS Drawing: Business Card Composer

Send Article to a Friend

When I think about creating business cards, two problems come to mind. Most annoying is the waste of hundreds of unused cards every time I change my phone number or address, all thanks to large minimum orders from most printing houses. Also perturbing is the effort of creating a decent-looking business card using traditional graphics software - I can do it, but it's more work than should be necessary. A solution to both of these problems comes from BeLight Software's Business Card Composer, an elegant Mac OS X program that helps you design attractive business cards and print them on standard business card stock in consumer inkjet printers.
