How do I make a two-sided business card? Should I make 2 PSD ’s with bleeds or combine them into one PSD with bleeds between them?

Hehe tigerlabs!

I’ve made three business cards, and with mine I’ve always included one .PSD for the Front, and one .PSD for the Back of the cards. I’ll do you a favour and give you a link to a .PSD that contains a blank business card, that contains the correct sizes and already done bleed lines! Wait a few minutes!

EDIT : http://www.2shared.com/photo/LBa5-2UV/BusinessCardTemplate.html enjoy buddy! (:

Well I make just one PSD with two groups inside it; Front and Back. That way it’s easier to manage for buyers and they need not to take care of multiple files. Just hide the unwanted side and save the image in whatever way one wants.

I feel bad using the second method because Harry was so nice to upload a template for me. :D

Thanks Harry! :)

There’s no problem in using template but if you ever plan to jump into print design, you’ll need to know how to put on bleeds and other printer stuff. But well if it’s just for GR I guess it’ll be ok. Good luck. :)

I recently uploaded my first file to GR, its a business card!

I went for the method of using 2 .psd’s one for the back and the other for the front. After reading what Raincutter said, it does make more sense to go with the single psd. All my future business card designs will feature just the one!

We don’t know what buyers really prefer but well I suppose this is the best idea to manage the file and keep things tidy. Generally some background elements remain same on both sides. For that I usually keep those layers in a group named ‘background’ and place it below both ‘front’ and ‘back’ group. That way those similar layers are not duplicated. Every byte matters, believe me. :D

Good luck with your card man! Hope I’ll be able to see it in your portfolio soon. :)
