Hey everyone...I'm new here and I'm wondering if anyone can point me to some of the 3x5 card templates

that might be in word format?

I collect alot of information on the fly...."objects" of info, addresses etc --pen to paper and I would like to be able to transfer those onto 3x5 cards that I can type out on the comp and print so they're nice and clean.

Ideally I'd love to find the 1 up 3X5 hPDA in word format instead of PDF.

Any help would make me happy.

-Rob

Welcome to DIYPlanner.com. The best way to start downloading 3x5 templates is to click this link and grab yourself the set of "hipsterPDA" templates (both the 3.0 editon and the add-on kits are great starters).

These are 3x5 index cards size that you can print out and write on. ANd yes, they come in 1-up format. Or you can download the Open office templates (this is the Graphics version templates) and edit them to make your own cards. We don't do MS Word templates because not everyone has access to the spendy software. Open Office is free and is offered for all platforms.

You can also search our template directory for 3x5 size card templates too. They come in a wide variety of 1-up and 4-up. Just read the info, download the cards and experiment. Some of them are even created in MS word. However, the search features do not allow you to search by software extension.

Hope this helps,

Did you try...

the Dynamic Templates ?

Does "3x4" refer to paper size or layout ?

Templates and MS Word

Hi, Rob --

Likewise, welcome! I use a combination of templates and Word myself for 3x5 cards in my hPDA. It's a time-intensive hack, but it looks really good in print! :-)

If you use the standard DIY templates, first convert them to jpg using whatever software that you like. Then drop the graphic into a blank Word document. Then format the graphic (right click and select "Format Picture" --> "Layout" --> "Behind Text") so you can resize and position it as you like (depending on the desired printing size and your printer, you'll need to play around with this until you get it working the way you want).

Here's the cool part: Create tables and/or text boxes and position them over the desired part of the template, and type away. Set the table borders to invisible.

When you print, you get a nicely filled out template! It takes a fair amount of work to get it all set up and lined up properly, but for "boilerplate" templates that you print regularly or in large quantities, it's totally worth the time.

Hope this is of some help. I'd be happy to e-mail you a formatted document as an example if it would be useful.

Cheers,
