Business Card Template

Sorry if there is a thread with this in it but I looked and found nothing.

I recently started recruiting for my unit and have the sheets of "cards" to be printed on but cannot find the word document with the business card format for CF business cards. If anyone happens to have this I'd appreciate a PM!

Thanks in advance
I don't know if all the labels from the system are the same, or not.  The ones I had were printed by Avery and there was a form number on the package.  I was able to download a template from their website.
If you want to really have some fun, instead of English/French, have them in English/German. ''Oberfeldwebel'' sounds much more martial than 'sergent'.
Hello Again,

I didn't want to start a new thread, but I ran out of business cards and the template the Occam was kind enough to provide does not work on my DWAN or personal computer anymore.

Does anyone have a newer DND Business Card template they can send me?


You won't find a newer version, as all support for the template dried up years ago to the best of my knowledge.  However, the template should still work, I'm using it on Office 2K3 at home and if I get a chance I'll try it on Office 2010 on my wife's PC.  You may want to ensure that you're allowing macros to run when you open the template - you should get a security warning about macros, which you need to respond "enable once" (or something similar).
Here's a link to the DND business card template on a free filehosting site - I have no idea how long they host for.  http://www.filedropper.com/bcardse

And, as per usual, as soon as I tried to open the template, it now no longer works.  I'm wondering if an update to Office 2K3 broke the functionality somehow?  Anyways, I'll try playing with it, but macros and stuff like that are not my strong suit.
It opens in Office 2010 but appears to be missing relevant information
Yes, it used to open a dialog box (presumably the macro?) where you were prompted to input all of the details you'd normally put on a business card, and then the template would plunk it all into the appropriate places on business card stock.  I just managed to get it running, although I'm not sure what I did (it's been one of those days).

Now it does the same in Office 2010

It didn't do that the first time I tried to run it this afternoon.  I lowered the security settings on macros, and it still wouldn't run.  Then, mysteriously, it started working.  The dialog box is what you're supposed to see - you fill in the blanks, and it populates an 8.5 x 11 sheet of business card stock for printing.  You're supposed to use the template with DND 5238/NSN 7530-21-912-4632, which is business card stock with the Canadian Flag and National Defence/Defense nationale logos preprinted.  I have a few sheets of it left over, but haven't been able to track it down since looking for it last.  Not sure if it's a locally procured item or not.
If it has an NSN number I don't think it is an LPO item
Lots of LPO items have NSNs.  Anything that comes up in CGCS with an IM Advisory code of 4P is locally procured/locally funded.
Sorry to necropost, but I'd rather not start a new topic.

I am looking for the subject template, is it still available? Can i have it pm'd to me as others have?
I know I shouldn't but, I too am necro'ing this thread. If anyone has the DND template, shoot me a pm please!

That is a perfectly fine thing to do in a situation like this.
