Copycat? Or, Competition?
I don’t know what to make of CardWorks. It works. It lets you design and print business cards on your Mac. If you’re printing up business cards for non-commercial use, there’s a free version, so that’s the major attraction.
Otherwise, $5 more gets you Business Card Composer which is the Lexus of the Mac business card develop app list.
CardWorks isn’t without redeeming value, though. As with most of these apps you start with a collection of business card templates, each of which is customizable.
That means you can change the text, name, background color, logo, and size with just a few clicks. It accepts JPG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, and PNG images or photos for background or logos.
The templates adjust to most paper sizes and all standard business card sizes are supported so it’s easy to create a business card and print it out from your Mac to business card stock on a printer.
CardWorks also lets you create double-sided business cards, too. There’s even an option to print with crop marks so a printer can cut the cards to the exact size.
This is a good app for anyone who just needs a few business cards from time to time for personal (non-commercial use). The developer seems to specialize in Mac applications that work much like similar apps already in the Mac app community, including video and audio editing, photo editing, and accounting apps.
