Are you using the same generation of Word as PowerPoint? Have you tried printing a sample of the word document to see if it’s just on the computer?

I would check both these things, and if that doesn’t work, you should be able to do your escort cards in PowerPoint. =) Just make a grid with the line drawing tool, add in text boxes, and work your magic!

No problem! =) 

Do you have MS Publisher? That might also work (and that way you can format your template exactly to fit the cards you bought)….

If you don’t…are the cards you bought returnable? That way, you could use PowerPoint and just print on regular card stock and cut the cards out. Or you can try formatting them with PowerPoint. Check in the help section on whether or not you can set page margins and grid margins, etc — that’ll make it easier!

My fiance (the computer geek) says to check the font size and whether or not PowerPoint automatically made it bold/italic/etc. And he says to check that the line and character spacing (in the paragraph dialogue — if you go to format, it should be under "paragraph") are the same.

He also says that every single program may rasterize fonts differently, so you may have to use PowerPoint. Maybe it would work if you made the template in Word…then saved it as a JPEG (if you can do that — most of the time you have to convert to a PDF, then a JPEG, and you need Adobe Writer to do that), and then copied and pasted it into PowerPoint?

Sorry to post so much — but I figured I’d ask him. =)
