    I need help. My computer crashed and I lost my template that I had made for my business cards. Now I can't seem to recreated them. They print awful after I insert my logo. I set the export to CMYK, resolution at 300 and export as a TIFF, no problem. But, when I try to insert it into my business card in Business Cards Plus I get a runtime error abnormal program termination and the program shuts down. If I toggle off the CMYK, I can export the logo and insert it no problem, but it prints very grainy. I have tried everything and I am at my wits end. HELP!!!!!!!!!!! : o_please

    jsianis, see if Tgif export doesn't work better for you.

    Tried TGIF

    Tried it, but still not as crisp and clear as TIFF is. For some reason Business Cards Plus won't let me export the CMYK TIFF file. It keeps shutting down the program. I can insert any other file except the one I need. But, none of hte other files turn out as clear as the TIFF.

    Yep. That is the one. For whatever reason, I can't upload anything that is exported as CMYK

    I put a CMYK, Tiff at 300 DPI export from TLC to the test with a whole range of different programs and had no problems..Not even with printing. Being I don't have Business Cards Plus...I came to the conclusion problem must lie with Business Cards Plus. Perhaps their customer service will be able to answer the question for you. :eek:

    That would depend on what you want. If you want something that will give you clipart, fonts, font effects full flexibility with the ability to choose layouts and cardstock or just something to make business cards.
