"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I used Microsoft Publisher and that works well. You can get Avery card stock. Publisher comes with Office 2010 Pro and Office 2013
I'd say use whatever program you're most comfortable with.

Publisher is the best option in the Microsoft products. If you don't have it, then PowerPoint is also a good option because it's easy to place graphics and textboxes where  you want them.

Word is another good option because most of the business card stock manufacturers provide Word templates. But if you want to place a graphic on each card, that can be a bit of a hassle.

If you go to, you can find business card templates for PowerPoint and Word there also. That makes it pretty easy to just add your text in place of the dummy text. 

No matter which program you decide to use, you'll want to print on regular paper and hold it up to the card stock to ensure everything prints where you expect so you don't waste card stock!

I use Corel Draw to make my business cards.  There are also some dedicated business card programs.  Here's a list of a few of them:
