Making conference table cards is a necessary skill for civilian staff. Today we will learn about how to make double-sides conference tables.

To make the table more exquisite, we have inserted a two-column, one-row table and a background image into the document in advance.

Now, we can choose the desired WordArt effect and add it to the appropriate position in the cells on both sides. Then, input the name of the representative, and adjust the font size of the text.How_to_make_conference_table_cards_in_batches_1.gif

Next, adjust the direction of the text on the left to Vertical Right to Left, and the text on the right to  Rotate All Text 270°. In this way, the text direction is correct after the table is folded.How_to_make_conference_table_cards_in_batches_2.gif

Finally, we can set the table style to No Border.How_to_make_conference_table_cards_in_batches_3.gif
