I tend to use the free templates from Avery for Avery paper stock. They are in .doc format, though.

I do have some printing issues though, due to printer and paper alignment. I have only one printer that get the paper alignment correct more than 97% of the time. The issue is the printers own internal margin minimums for Letter or A4 paper. I get around this by using borderless printing option[s].

I use to make my own business cards, but I now use a service. But, I use the card stock for many other things, including "business card like" cards for specific events that would be too costly to make more than 50+ cards.

Also, I tend not to use the "fill out one card for all cards" type of options. I do my own cut/paste for card stock filling. It just works better for my needs.

Hi :)
That's the approach i've always taken.  I try to avoid doing them at all
tbh and that works well for me! ;)

Early on, back when i only ever used MS Office, i found their templates for
cards didn't seem to work so well either.  It took ages to find out what
reference to look for and then to find that reference in their list of
templates.  Only to find that my labels weren't a supported size or managed
to magically just miss anyway.  So i've almost always found it better to
make my own template and then do a couple of test-prints.  If i get to
re-use one of my old templates i still do a test-print.

For most officey things i tend to find the default way doesn't work so i
build-up my own way of doing things.  One reason i like Gnu&Linux and
LibreOffice is that they usually help me find some work-around for things
that other office workers have given-up on.

Regards from
Tom :)

I’ve got one I made up for myself for speciality cards that I use as
labels in our yarn shop and print on the blank cardstock. I used tables,
made sure I could see the cell boundaries and set the size specifically.
Then I can just type into each cell what I need on that card , print and
then use them as shelf labels.

Is there some kind of a template in Libre Writer for business card
I’ll bet you can do it by using tables or charts but that’s way past
my expertise.
