I created a business card design on Word, each side of the card as one 85x55mm page. Most printers seem to want it in PDF file which is easy, but they sometimes want each side as a different document.

Is it possible to split a word or PDF file into multiple documents, e.g split on a page-break? I can't find an option in Word 2007 and no idea about Acrobat but I doubt it.

@John: superuser.com is a better site for non-programming, but still computer and software related questions. You can get information on joining the semi-private beta on the SO blog. blog.stackoverflow.com/2009/07/… –  Bill the Lizard Aug 7 '09 at 17:03

If using the commandline is an option, I would recommend pdftk.

pdftk multipage.pdf burst

If you're using Office 2007, you can install this Microsoft Add-in for converting to PDF, or update to Office 2007 SP2 that has this add-in included, as said here.

You can split pages from a PDF into individual documents using Acrobat.

A little more detail, like a hint of which menu to look at, would be helpful. –  MatrixFrog Feb 2 '10 at 2:23

You can also use a free program like doPDF and print page 1 to a PDF, then print page 2 to a separate PDF.
