Default borders in MS Word

I am making Business Cards in Microsoft Word. I have added a border to the
cards, but the lines vary on the right side and bottom of the page of the
business cards. How do I make all of the borders the same? I have tried
clicking each business card, and then formating Borders and Shading, but that
doesn't seem to correct the problem. Does anyone have any ideas? I would
appreciate your help.

Default borders in MS Word

If you want to have a border on each business card, then I would insert a
table inside the cell that represents the card, the position and size that
inner table so that its borders are in the position that you want. Then you
insert the text that you want on the card inside the inner table. When you
have it set up the way that you want, copy and paste to the other cells on
the sheet.

You may run in to issues with the accuracy of the positioning of the stock
onto which you are printing in the printer that may cause the positioning of
the border to not be equidistant from the edges of each card.

Hope this helps.
