On the upper part, you see the Toolbar that lets you add a text, upload image, and choose shapes and background colors for either side of your business cards. You can also adjust the font size and type to capture the look you want for your work.

Step 3: If you do not have an image on hand to use for your project, we have affordable stock images to choose from for your design. Click the Stock Images tab to make a search bar appear so you can search for the pictures that you wish to use. Enter the keyword on the search bar and you will be given a result of high-quality images.

As an example, we have entered the term “dog” to show the images that could be used for your business cards for as low as $1.
