    All these people and a bunch more started this. The tread was getting big so I want to give it a fresh start cause this is such a good idea, and we can all help give something back to <font color=blue>Coloradok5</font color=blue>

    At http://computingcentral.msn.com/topics/shareware/dbdetails.asp?downloadID=66193
    This doesnt get you all the way, you will have to choose shareware from the meny bar to get there.

    There is a download that lets you print buissness-cards for 30 days on your own computer/printer. I just spent 15 minuts and have in my hand 30 great-looking cards that advertices this site. Now if I come across a Blazer/Jimmy, I will stick it on his windshield or hand it to the driver if I see him/her around.

    Check it out.

    Heh, we could all start printing them and go through mall parking lots, autozone etc and stick em on every blazer/jimmy we see, or pay some kid a dollar or two and let them do it for us.

    If it aint a Chevy don't raise it up!

    Also, if you have MS Publisher 98, it will print business cards and I heard that WORD will also, but i never tried it.

    I have used Publisher 98 many times.

  7. Was there a final decision on a graphic or was it still personal choice?

    You will have to download the buisnesscard maker first I think. I saved my final card in My Documents on my computer but it automaticly saved it as a bcp-file. Only the card maker program uses this file-type??!
    Only explanation I can think of. I will scan them at home tonight and post my final layout. I used the blue Coloradok5 logo and some fine words describing this place.
    My color-printer did the rest. Also after getting such good results I went later today and bought the sheets that are ment for this, and it came out even better without me trying to cut straight with scissors!

    It was so easy too, here's another one:
    It was so much fun I got carried away.....

    I saw a 4"lifted 70's Blazer on the way home from work tonight. I waved at him but he just waved back thinking I just said hello. I will get him next time. I also know there are two more around town here somewhere....

    Can you send me that old CK5 pic that is on the top of your first card?

    What are you making your cards with?

    Sure. Here is the first coloradok5 banner that Steve used for the original start of CK5:

    Follow the link in my first post to get the buisnesscard maker for a 30 days trail. It was easy. And I'm no computer-expert!

    i tried to attach it, but i'm dumb as a houseplant when it comes to computers.

    I made one and got a little carried away. I tried attaching it, but it said that the file was too big. I will put it up on my website and put a link to it tomorrow.

    It is 227KB..... Is that too big?

    I have not had a chance to look at the link yet sounds great though. I needed a way to tell local K5ers about this site. I was just trying to keep this post at the front of the forum.

    "Have you driven over a ford lately?"
