This coming April 26 will be a long and windang day for me. As I am now confirmed to be an attendee at the upcoming Iblog 4 Summit and the 88DB.com Bloggers’ Night party. Two big events in one day! Just imagine a whole day seminar at the Malcolm Theater, College of Law, in UP Diliman, Quezon City, then a bloggers night in the evening at the Katips Bar. With booze, music, girls and prizes. Whoa! What else can you ask for! money This is war! I better get prepared. lol
Since this gathering is social networking, where you get the chance to meet a lot of nice and horny people (advertisers, bloggers, CEOs, VIPs, etc..) I better have my calling cards ready. And for those of you who also needs it. I prepare a nice tutorial on making a handy dandy calling card ala meal stub. hahaha!
- computer with a word processor (486 will do)
- printer (with ink of course)
- bond paper (not related with James)
- rubber band (the rockers? nah!)
- Elmer’s glue (never mind the name, it could be anyone’s glue – waldo’s, fred’s, kadyo’s lol..)
1. BTW I’m referring to MS Word in this tutorial. But you can use any word processor on your computer.
2. In the page setup settings type 8.5 as the width and 13 for height. or just pick the legal size from the dropdown menu.
3. Next create a textbox that measures 1.53″ height x 3″ width.
4. Pimp your card. Type all the informations needed.(ex. name, email, mobile no., etc.) Put your logo or image to make it eye-catching. (don’t mind the one I’ve made, the colored ink was already empty, lol)
5. Group all of it (textbox and images) then copy and paste it in 3-column on the page. (This would snuggly fit 24 copies of your calling card on one printing) See image:
6. Save the file for future editing.
7. Print at least 3 or 4 pages.
8. Cut it using a ruler and a cutter.(just be careful) or you can also use a scissor.
9. After your done with cutting. Arrange all of it like a deck of cards. Make sure its stiff and firm.
10. Tie it up tightly with a rubber band
11. Using your forefinger, apply Elmer’s Glue on the entire tip of the calling card (right portion only)
12. Let it dry for about 30 minutes.
Tada! You now have a handy dandy calling card ala meal stub. Now present it with a smile. 😀
