We’ve broken with tradition as Jesse and I both work for the state. However, we recognize the value of hedging bets so we each have a side business. How can a Mac user start their own business? The first, fastest, and easiest way is to figure out what you’d like to do, name the business, then print up a few dozen business cards on your Mac.
There’s not much that could be easier, either, especially with the Home Business Card app. It does exactly what you think it does. It creates and prints customized business cards. Instead of spending big bucks on shiny, glossy business cards, print your own from your Mac.
Think of Home Business Card as a page layout application for business cards.
Any office supply store will have blank business card stock you can run off on your printer. Each sheet may have eight to 10 cards, and Home Business Card comes with templates for major card stock brands.
You can drop in graphics, change fonts, pull addresses from Contacts, integrate a Google map, add barcodes, and use text and shapes as a logo creator. Even images and photos can be edited and enhanced with any of the 100 built-in Core Image effects and filters.
Creating a card is a simple step-by-step processes. Select a card format template, drop in a background and images, add contact information, and you’re ready to print.
Not bad, huh? Home Business Card is straightforward, good enough for small print shops that need a way to create custom business card designs, of course, but perfect for the home office on a budget. That said, there are a few things missing. More clip art images, more templates, and a QR code generator would justify the price.
