Football Card Templates
a matter of moments you can create a football card for your
favorite athlete and team utilizing our free football card
templates. All you need is a picture, the team name,
athlete's name and our template. Well that, and some
thicker paper for your printer would be nice.
We lay it all out in a few simple steps to create the sports
card. If you are doing this for an entire team, we
have a football card template made for an entire team (or at
least 9 at a time)!
Also - remember we currently have
templates for several different sports. Visit the
Template home page to reveiw them all.
1 - Select Your Football Card Template
Card Templates come in 3 different configurations
2 - Customize Football Card Template and
Once you have successfully
opened your football card template into Adobe Acrobat, you
can add your picture by clicking in the center of the
Note that we recommend you crop (cut off) the top
or bottom 20% of the average picture so that the picture doesn't get stretched.
The average picture is 1.3 times longer than it is wide. The picture portion of these
card templates are only 1.1 times longer than their width.
Next add the team name and player name
to each card.. Keep in mind that you just as easily
place the team name or player name in either position.
In fact, most cards will place the players name on the
bottom of the card, but either way works!
If you have selected the Team Football Card Configuration
template from above you will need to do this for each and
ever card prior to printing. If you don't use a couple
of the cards, they will print anyway, but it still saves
paper and is worth doing.
Now that your configuration is ready to go, find the
thickest paper (also called "board") your printer
can handle. You may wish to consult your local paper
supply store. Many of them have a thick glossy board,
or a "specialty board" that can make some very
cool football cards utilizing these templates.
Also - let us know if you create a link to us from any
website you have access too they are always appreciated!
Note: Remember that you can't save changes to
your football field layout in Adobe unless you have Acrobat
Professional. So you will want to setup the diagram
and then print copies when complete.
Note: Team & Player Name can be swapped of
