    I print my business cards from Word, using my Macbook. I use the Avery Ivory Matte business card stock, and really like the results. I like my design and have been using it for years. Lately, something is up: the cards come out dull. I've done this across several different printers, so I don't think it is the printer. I have a new one now.

    I tried using new cards, same deal; comes out faded and dull when it used to be bright and vivid. Could this actually be the Word document itself?

    Thank you for any advice.

    Neither, it's really best to use a publishing app, my favourite is adobe's indesign. As far as the OP is concerned, I doubt that a word document could be fading your print, unless word has some sort of color calibration or prints to a certain color profile. You might want to look at the selected color profile when you hit print.
