Designing Business cards in CorelDraw

Designing Business cards in CorelDraw


this tutorial is all about making business cards corollary is really good at making business cards so first of all when you open coreldraw or make a new file it is always the page size is always the letter size so that’s the default we just ate month by 11 inches so what we’re going to do if you measure the business cards it’s actually three and a half inches by two inches so what we’re going to do we’re going to change this with to 3.5 inches by two inches there so our objective is to make a business card here okay so we can start doing the tutorial here okay so if you have the page size regular which is trying to apply two inches if you double click on this rectangular tool it would give you a you know a box which is the size of the page border right so now we’re going to do is we’re going to do this first part here okay so what I’m going to do I’m going to click here i’m gonna make a line going this side here okay and when i’m going to go into my shape to click here click on the line and right mouse click and you go to curve and we’re going to make a shape effect here okay okay we’ll just make it as close as possible as the original one but if it’s not close enough that’s fine okay so now we’re going to do the bottom part so you click here and then a plus sign for duplicate without offset and then you can move this and drag this down okay so we have two objects now what i’m going to do i’m also going to copy this border okay by hitting the plus sign so we have 22 right now in there because we’re going to make a shaping you know we’re gonna make a simplify effect here we sang when I explain later okay so what we going to do is click here ok that’s the box and then click on ok I’ll just make it still zoom in so you click on the box ok that’s the box of the three off by two inches and then hold on shift and click on the the line that you just created and you go to we go to arrange and go to shaping and you choose simplify their let’s zoom out here so when you choose click on simplify now you can delete this shape here ok did that we don’t need that anymore okay so the next one okay so we’re going to do the bottom one so you click the border and then you click the that line and you go to arrange shaping and then simplify okay so then we can delete this one here now what we’re going to do is we’re going to break this apart so you notice see okay so we’re going to break that apart by going to arrange break curve apart so now we can isolate the objects now so we don’t need this Center one to delete that one so this one okay I’m gonna okay we just go to edit and copy properties from and we go to fill and click ok and this brown here I’m going to remove the outline but going to the outline tool and click on X okay so we go to the bottom part okay you go to edit copy properties from Phil click OK and rich feel this one and I’m going to remove the outline ok so doing really good here so now this one if you notice this you’ve gotta like shadow but it’s blue so they affect their issue and style their issue okay in your in your keyboard click on the plus bottom for duplicate without offset and then move it like expand it a little bit this one by using this and then since its blues we go to edit and then copy properties from feel click OK and I’ll click on this one ok now the brown disappeared because it’s behind so you go to arrange order to back off page there you go same thing with this one plus sign your keyboard ok and then you make and put it up like that ok and then edit same thing that we’ve done to the first one and then click OK feel would be this one and then you go to arrange order to back up page I go and it will just make this smaller a little bit ok ok ok you’re not going to explain with the other effects because we’re kind of limited in time here but what I’m gonna do I’m gonna do this part here because it says here mute okay so okay so I’ll make that bold ok I’m shrink it down they’ll make that white ok and what I’m going to do is I’m going to okay so you go to effects and then go to add perspective so when you click on add perspective and you can ya make perspectives say this one light you click on that node and move it down and you can also move this up here ok that one’s done okay celeb different but that’s right now and now i’m just going to copy this one because you know how to do this already right and then and then this one the same thing okay just type in it make it black and then for this one you notice i put a white outline okay just to make sure that you know the name would be seen so I so when you click on that one okay actually when i type in there’s no outline so if you want to put outline go to your outline to land the first one okay and then you go to all try to white this one is important make it it has to be behind field and scale with images okay because if you don’t do that the outline would go inside okay I know and I to the well-bred okay now this one I’m just going to copy that one okay so and I’ll just explain you know this is just a color part and what I do here is I didn’t mind my one of my tutorials this one is fitting text to path here so made a circle if that’s the path and then I type in DMC enterprise and I put it in there okay so so that’s pretty much it right so i can delete the snow and then i can group this one ctrl G to group ok now if I’m kind of I don’t have a big budget for creating a business card so I’m going to print it in a card stock paper in my own printer so so we can do that here so instead of custom here in the page you go back to letter size okay so this is my letter size paper I’m going to print it a card stop okay so this is group together ready so what I’m going to do I’m going to tile it okay I get tile five here and then five down ok so now when I click here and I know it’s 3.5 is the width right so in here in your nudge okay not offset okay type in three here for three inches sorry not three in just 3.5 okay so 3.5 in the nudge okay so it means to say when you copy this one with my plus sign right no offset and then in the keyboard you have the right arrow going to the right side so you click on that and it makes it jump three inches to 30 features to the right so that’s how you do it now now let’s do the other one so you know our height is 2 inches so you change the nudge to 2 inches okay and then you select this one and plus sign then arrow down plus sign pero down plus sign arrow down plus sign arrow down and there you go so you can print that in your colored printer it’s already child without the offset so you get a guide there for cutting

  1. HWere do you get business cards templates for corel 11 ??

  2. What program did you use to make your vid. Thanks for this vid.

  3. Sir,
    Watching your tutorials is like having you sat beside me!!

    We could'nt ask for more..Yu are a genius my friend, not only at technical skills with corel, but also as a fantastic teacher!!

    May the heavens rain down sweet meats upon you!!

    Many many thanks bro..

  4. hola excelentes tutoriales, no tendras en español? veo que tu nombre es muy latino, si tienes en español te lo agradeseria

  5. Thank you for all these videos.

  6. Tip:

    You dont have to press "+" sign on keyboard to duplicate object, if you want to put it in the different place in the project. You can just drag object and, while holding whe left mouse button, click the rigt mouse button to get copy of dragged object. Now, when you drop it (relase left mouse button) you got copy of previously dragged object. So you can get two things – DUPLICATE AND MOVE DUPLICAT AT JUST ONE DRAG-R.M.B.-DROP OPERATION.

  7. I have just become your Number 1 fan…..
    You are to graphic design as Bach to the ear…..
    Really great…..
    Thanks once more for the great tips and all the work you have put in to make this tutorial….

  8. Very easy to make this type of lines on Corel… In Photoshop we lost a lot of time to make it. Thanks for the tutorial.

  9. WOw tHnx foR the Tutorials..

  10. awesome, really. Thank you, you helped me a lot! Corel seemed to be an unsearchable wood 😀 But now I'm really proud of my work;) Just could you say how to make frames for it?

  11. tol, paano mo sineparate yung picture sa card itself if you just copy the card itself or scanned the calling cards?

  12. Shouldn't you have added and eighth of an inch all around since you have a four sided bleed in this design. Also if your going to print it out on your own printer instead of taking to to the professional printer, you could put trim mark on the sheet so you know where to trim (or cut) the cards. GREAT VIDEO! Nice work.

  13. Photoshop is better… much better

  14. why is it that when i will drag an object, it automatically duplicates itself? can someone help me solve this this problem?please…

  15. Don't forget to extend colors that bleed of the edge of your card by 3/16" beyond 3"x2".
    Otherwise the card won't cut properly at the printer. Also leave at least 1/8" from the edge for text. More if possible.
    NEVER tile your card as shown in this tutorial. In "print preview" you can tile properly with crop marks and bleeds . If you are taking your file to a professional printer supply your card 1 up and let them tile it. They may be able to print it on larger sheets to save you money.

  16. Thanks for best video tutorials.
