1. Open Microsoft Word on your PC. You can look for it in the taskbar’s search box. Word is pre-installed in most computers, especially those with Windows OS. If your OS is Windows 10, you’ll need to pay a monthly fee to use Word. But you can opt for the free web version on Office.com.

2. Search for rack card templates in the Microsoft templates gallery in Word. Type “rack cards” on the search box. If you can’t find any, use our rack card templates instead. They’re of fine quality, especially in terms of format and design. Many of them are free to download.

Note: In typing the company name and slogan, use the right font styles and colors. Make sure that they enhance readability rather than diminishing it.

4. Input complete information about the product, service, or event that you’re promoting. This includes prices, discount rates, date, time, venue, requirements, qualifications, and more. Type them below or anywhere where they fit perfectly on your rack card.
