Default Got an Avery 5371 template for AI, ID or QX?

Anyone happen to have a blank Avery 5371 business card template hanging about for Illustrator, InDesign or QuarkXPress? I've been combing through Google searches for one and come up with templates, but not for those programs or not for Avery 5371. Doing a favor for a non-profit and need to get them the cards ASAP, but keep running into those myriad, very UNhelpful sites that are merely pages of links based on what terms you fed to Google. <grump> and a few others, but no luck so far.

I would probably download the one for Word, which should be a table, then recreate it in ID. The table might even import, but I would not hold my breath.

Looks like that's what I'm stuck with, starting with a Word template. I just downloaded one and PDF'd it (after setting printable borders for the table it was set to be). Now I'll open it in Illustrator, set that table as a template layer and see how well it works with the stock. Here's hoping!

I could give you all the measurements from my WordPerfect 5371 label if that would help...

Here they are:

Page size = 8.5" x 11"

Label size: w=3.50", h=2.00"

Top Left Label: Top edge=.500", Left Edge=.750"

Labels per page: Columns=2, Rows=5

Space Between Labels: Columns=0", Rows=0"

Label Margins: Left=.125", Right=.125", Top=.125", Bottom=.125"


Also Office Depot has templates...

Hope that helps...

Thanks for all that! If this converted-from-Word template doesn't work, I'll take those measurements and build my own. What I wish is that the people who bought the blanks could get me a couple sheets for test prints, but the blanks are 30 minutes from me, so I'll have to let them do their own test prints and let me know if adjustments are needed.

You're welcome...while the forms are not all that cheap, if you have an office supply place--Staples, Office Depot, whatever--near you, it would probably be easier if you just bought a package yourself...

Personally, I prefer the Geographics GeoPaper Business Cards forms...they are less expensive than Avery and nicer/sturdier paper, nicely microperferated so the edge is clearn and use they same template as Avery bus cards...they also come in a lot of different colors...personally, I prefer the light cream as it sets off my logo nicely...

By the way...the Office Depot templates (at least for WordPerfect) are just a data file rather than part of the WordPerfect Labels mechanism and it just might convert easily...

I'll look at the Geographics forms and see if someone here carries them. If I'm going to use any myself, I don't want to buy them sight unseen.

Hopefully someone locally will carry them...if not, email me your mailing addy and I'll pop a few sheets in the mail to you...

Why don't you ask them to post you five or six sheets?
