Default I'm trying to change text in a businesscard template?

I downloaded a template for 10/page business cards. Figured out how to put
my logo and info on it. I have succesfully printed a version on Avery
Template (8376) paper. Now I'de like to change the text to make different
versions. I'm stuck trying to figure out how to change the text.

You just change the text in your Word document the same way you would change
any other Word document. Now do it 9 more times.

In addition - I've been using their free software application. I don't have
the URL to see all the information but this is the download URL from my
download manager's history:

http://www.avery.com/us/downloads/so..._2_Limited.exe

I downloaded it about two weeks ago and I've used it a few times. It seems
like it does everything that you can do online and then some - so you could
edit your saved project (if it's saved) and work on it from there or you can
make a new one pretty easily with it.

Copy the upper-left entry from your successful Avery template file. Save that
template file. Now open another Word document based on the Avery 8376
template. Paste the copied entry into the upper-left corner of your new template
file. Modify its contents (move logo, change fonts, modify text, whatever).
Once you're satisfied with its appearance, copy it, and paste it into the other
nine 8376 template elements. Now you have a full sheet ready to print. Save this
template under another file name. Print until you heart's content.

Good luck.

Joann,

Thanks unfortunately it isn't working. Another person sent me a link to
Avery which may be an easier template.

Thanks unfortunately it's still not working. Another person sent me a link

I use Publisher to do business cards now. Personal preference.

As a follow up, did you find it easier? I ask because I want to know at a
personal level. If it's easier to do in Word then I'd be silly to not do so.
The app was pretty simple and fun to play with actually, a bit bloated I
guess but it had a lot to do, and really did the trick for me.
