Select the Index Card 3" x 5" option in Microsoft Word if you want to create an index card. After determining the size, you may type, insert photos and edit the index card area as needed.
- Open a Word document
Double-click the Microsoft Word icon on your desktop to open Word. Select File, then New to open a new Word document.
- Adjust the size
Click the Page Layout tab at the top of the Microsoft Word screen. Locate the Size dropdown menu, and click it to select. Older versions of Word may require you to choose Page Setup from the File menu and then click the Paper tab.
- Locate the index card setting
Scan the dropdown menu that appears after you click Size, and find and click on the Index card - 3" x 5" option. If a 3" x 5" card turns out to be a little smaller than you would like, other size options exist in this dropdown menu, including the postcard size, which is 4" x 6".
- Print the cards
Insert page breaks by scrolling down to the next page if you desire to print multiple 3" x 5" cards. Once you have created as many cards as desired, select File and Print to print the cards.
