I'm ready to make new New Business Cards. I have read about Belight Business Card Composer. Does anyone have it. Pros and Cons? What do you think is the best for the Mac

Chronos - the folks that make StickyBrain (which was offered to .Mac members at a reduced rate) have a SOHO business card package for US$29.95.

This might be a cheap and viable solution for you. Check it out!

[EDIT] I should add that I have not used this product so do not know whether or not it is the best ... merely offering it as an alternative to consider.

Adobe Indesign, Illustrator or Quark would be your best bet, but a little pricey.

anything made for professional printwork is best.... i'm sure if you can supply and indesign or quark file it is much easier for the print shop.... all they got to do it make it propagate it so it prints many on one sheet and added printers marks

indesign also allows you to package the design in a pdf with the font include so the print shop doesn't need to have it

*cough* Appleworks *cough*

It's free with your Mac, and it has card templates.

I usually use Adobe Illustrator for business cards. Are you sending a file to a print shop, or are you printing your own?

Well, it's not like there's a set template that comes with InDesign or Illustrator (that I'm aware of), but most people who own those programs generally have the skills to make their own templates. They're blank slate programs, that's what makes them so powerful to use. I'm sure you'd be able to do a quick search and find the templates you need, if building a template is out of your skill set.

Not if you have a Power Mac or a PowerBook.

Yes I discovered that adobe is pretty daunting if you don't know how to use it, and I don't. So, I guess I'll look and see if there are any plug-ins for templates. I suppose I will eventually learn how to do it, but there certainly is a learning curve.
