Visual Business Cards

CNET Editors' review

We have to preface this by saying that we are engaged to a big graphic design nerd, and we know without asking what he would think of Visual Business Cards. There's a lot of bad design out there, and unfortunately, Visual Business Cards seems to be in the business of propagating it. Although the program is quite easy to use, we're afraid that more often than not it will result in tacky, amateurish business cards.

The program loses any design credibility it may have had by setting Comic Sans as the default font. We do give Visual Business Cards credit for being easy to use; creating a business card is really as easy as entering your contact information and then selecting from a variety of backgrounds, borders, images, and more. We like that the program comes with plenty of templates for users who don't want or need much in the way of customization, but that at the end of the process it still allows users to manipulate individual design elements if desired. Although we're not sure that clip art is a great aesthetic choice, many of the program's themes include it, which may or may not be a good thing. The program's Help file is well written and thorough. Overall we found the program to be quite intuitive and simple, although we did have problems on more than one occasion with the program crashing when we tried to change fonts.

Visual Business Cards has a 30-day trial period. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users; it may not produce great design, but it does work.

    "Great for printing your own Business Cards"

    February 25, 2010  |   By jukes101

    Version: Visual Business Cards 4.31

    Pros

    Their is nothing wrong with the software, very easy to configure and works great.

    Cons

    I cannot fault this software.

    Summary

    My problem is with the software supplier. When i originally purchased this program from RKS i was informed that all updates are for free!!! My P.C. packed up and had to be replaced with a system that runs windows 7. The windows 7 compatible version of this software has been taken over by another software company and although they say they will let all the old customers of RKS have a copy of the new version they DONT respond when you request a new serial number. I think this is a very poor show by the new software company. Why dont they just say that old customers must buy a new version!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why the lies?
