To make printing on our note cards easier, we have created this helpful tutorial and have created some easy to use templates!
Printing on our note cards is easy and can save a lot of time! We currently offer A1 size note cards in both landscape and portrait layout.

Using the TemplateOur templates are pretty straightforward as we have included dummy text within them to show you where to place your text. Simply erase what we wrote and type your own message in. By default, we have included a 0.25" padding around the edges of the card. This prevents any words from being cut off when printing and also just gives the message a cleaner look.
Setting Up Your PrinterThe template document size is the same as the size of the note card unfolded:4.875" WIDE x 6.75" HIGH. PLEASE NOTE: If you're using the Portrait Layout Template, it will appear on your screen as 6.75" WIDE x 4.875" TALL, but follow the same instructions and print settings as the Landscape Layout (4.875" WIDE x 6.75" HIGH). The next step is to set up your printer to work with the custom size! You can do this from within your program, whichever that may be. All you need to do is go to your printer properties and locate where the paper size setting is.
Most of the time, this is a simple drop down menu. Unfortunately, the note card size is not always listed in the drop down, so you may need to create a custom size. In the drop down menu or somewhere near the paper size menu, you should see a place for you to create a custom size. Once you find that, simply set up the width and height to4.875" WIDE x 6.75" HIGH.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some printers actually do not allow custom sizes. Unfortunately, in these cases, we do not have a solution other than using / purchasing another printer. You may also reference your printer's user manual for additional guidance on printing on custom sized paper if this blog post doesn't apply to your printer.
