I you want to keep trying a both-sides printing, I recommend going through a software like Word and place your card image on the correct size and place on this page. This way you should get both images on the same place.
I recommend doing the tests with an image like this one to see if it matches. So that you don't loose to much ink, and can do multiple tests on the same draft page.
Yeah Word was what I was going to try next.
I purchased card stock and don't plan to glue

Hey, what might be a very silly question - where can I get darker Valkrill template? Closet to what C3V uses than what's built in.

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

@Confred & @DanieLoche - To print MSE exports 3/page, see Combine any 3 cards 3/page with GIMP Script-Fu, and make the margins 60 in the prompt. Flipping pages for backs can be tricky, however, as not all printers (and even print drivers) are aligned properly.
@Pumpkin_King - see @robbdaman 's Valkrill Template and/or @mac122 's Valkrill Hi-Res Blank for MSE

What I really want is SotM and RotV style High-Res (300 dpi) templates, so my CUC/CUA cards look better.

Thanks! I was messing around with blanks last night, I'll have to get that one to work. The darker one looks much better.

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

The Valkrill's template I updated for the High-res asset is exactly the same, but adding the nice effects at the bottom of the image zone (see link in my previous post).

I though about the same thing lefton4ya for the basic and vine blanks in high-res. But I absolutely don't know how it would be possible... High-res scans and photoshop ..?
When using basic/vine army card images to put into MSE High-res templates, I can recommend you to enable the "custom size" setting on the MSE image insertion window. Consequently, you can compress a little the weight of the images (~90%) to hide better the appearing frames. Here are some examples : (Cyprien), (Marcu),
(Jotun - not perfect).

I used printing with the "old" windows' Paint UI, and got all my army cards printed perfectly (3/pages). But since 2-3 years ago, they went to the current general Printing driver that is really really bad (like you can't print something a it's actual size, but is forced to print a predefined sizes that fits the page... ARHHH). Hopefully, IMO my collection is complete thus I don't need to print any new army card ahah... But thanks for remembering this link, might be useful for others who don't know about it.

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

Hmmmm. I'm having trouble using either of those. The hi-res one doesn't seem to want to work, and the smaller one doesn't have the proper text on it to work with MSE.

Re: MSE - Easy Army Card Creator (V2.5) (New Glyph Cards)

Alright, I figured something out! One more question - how do you change the color of text? The points and word "points" in MSE on Valkrill is black, and it doesn't show up very well on the darker cards. Can I make that white?

The word "points" is likely on the card blank in that color. You can change the color of the font for the number of points by editing the style file for the set you are using. Open the file in a text editor, like Notepad, and look for a section of code titled "init script:" . A few lines below that you should see something like this: else if to_lower(input) = "valkrill" then rgb(#,#,#) where the #'s represent the RGB color values. Change those numbers to 255,255,255 to get white font.

If you can tell me which MSE card set you are using, I might be able to edit a card blank to change the font on "points" to white.

Oops! I can edit the "points" logo, I realized after I posted that the word "points" was on the card image itself. Editing the style document will help though! Thank you!
